I don’t think diamonds are even very pretty. Love opals, though.
Give her a NFT diamond.
In 25 years this tradition will have taken a dramatic shift.
I told my (now) husband that I didn’t want a diamond. He DID get me a pretty little cubic zirconia to show to the parents. (He proposed to me in private, but we decided to stage an additional one in front of them to make them feel a part of it. Long story.) I don’t even rememer what happened to that ring.
I am frequently angered at the notion that ALL WOMEN want over-priced sparklies. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who has never wanted one, and thankfully, my husband believes me when I tell him that. We prefer to spend on something much more practical – a boat! ;)
I like the way that the sign on the counter keeps changing.
In case anyone is having trouble with the third sign in the bottom left panel, it says “Remember! A woman without diamonds is like a day without Twinkies.”
A reputable jeweler won’t resort to such shenanigans. They will help you, but not coerce you.
Diamonds… greatest commercial scam since King Gillette invented the safety razor.
That diamond might come in handy when Opus builds a laser
From comedian Ron White – Diamonds… that ’ll shut her up.
There are enough cut diamonds to provide everyone on Earth with a cupful. Unfortunately, many are either stored for the future or used as currency.
i love how the sign on gthe counter changes
Opus, you sucker! You fell for that hard-sell sales pitch? Maybe you were dazzled by the ever-changing sign behind you, but a house is more needed for connubial bliss than a shiny rock!
