Make Man Made Diamonds Appealing By Any Means Necessary?

If you don’t already know it, the push for persuading the overall public to accept man made diamonds as being exactly like genuinely natural diamonds is fast and furious. The battle is akin to two political opponents going toe-to-toe in a knock down drag’em out fight for office.

 

In the political arena, oftentimes candidates engage in a tactic known as candidate bashing. This is where they use anything, (truth, lies, misconceptions, half truths, verbal errors by their opponents and a lack of knowledge by the public) to make their opponent look like an offley horrible candidate that has no place in office.

 

In this literal war to gain market shares over natural diamonds, the driving forces behind man made diamonds have pulled out all the tricks and stops and are clearly intent on making man made diamonds appealing to the masses by any means necessary. That includes using scare tactics, putting out lies, rhetoric and blatant misinformation.

 

Man Made Diamonds and The Lies Their Advertisers Tell

These are some of the common lies you will find many of the makers of man made diamonds using to make their products look more appealing to the general public.

 

  • Double blind studies show that one out of every three diamonds sold in the United State has been altered to artificially increase its value. This is an ambiguous statement… what do they mean by being altered? Who did the study? When did they do it? Where did they do it and how?
  • On average a couple pays forty percent more for their diamond engagement ring than they should have paid. Once again, where are the so called facts and figures coming from?
  • Twenty to thirty percent of mined diamond sales go towards funding terrorism, drug cartels and other forms of violence. This one is such a stretch that a blind man cold see through it. First of all, how does one track all of the worldwide diamond sales? Secondly, if these companies know whose funding these illegal activities, why don’t they report them to the proper authorities? To get the truth about this issue, see our tutorials on Blood Diamonds.
  • Mined diamonds are controlled by a treacherous Mafia like cartel. Oh, please, I won’t even respond to that one.
  • Cecil Adams, in his award-winning newspaper column “The Straight Dope” says: “Diamonds are a con, pure and simple.” Once again, give us a break and report on something more believable. If diamonds are such a con, why are they coveted by the masses? A con is to get the masses to covet worthless gemstone look-a-likes.

Another tactic employed by some of the man made diamond makes is to hire/pay or influence well known celebrities to speak out against Blood Diamonds and Conflict Diamonds. They even take it a step further by publicly announcing that they will no longer be wearing naturally genuine diamonds.

 

Instead, they will only be wearing synthetic man made diamonds to gala events. This they claim is the only way to eliminate Blood Diamonds. Ok, if we live by that logic, we’d all have to stop using gasoline and start using vegetable oil in our vehicles.

 

The fact is man made diamonds can never and will never replace genuine diamonds no matter what process the man made diamond makers use to make their look-a-like products.
