    Tiffany: the best or rip-off

    I know this is an old thread but I still feel that theres an important point that's being missed here; There is a huge significance to the name of the brand, the heritage behind it and the buying experience as a whole (as was previously said). But, breaking down one of those rings into the different parts and saying "it's overpriced" is just wrong, even when reselling these designer rings, it's not weighed for the metal as scrap and judged by the value of the stone, it's sold as an entire designer "piece", and will never be broken down to the separate parts, so even if the original purchase price was 20% higher, the resell price is also 20% higher (just an example). It's like saying a gold Rolex isn't worth its weight in gold, The pieces are truly worth more than the sum of their parts.

    Largest Diamond Ever!

    You can actually go see one of the stones cut from that rough in The Tower of London, it's 530.2ct and called the Cullinan I, or the Great Star of Africa. It's quite beautiful.

    Why Diamonds?

    One other point is looking into diamonds atomic structure, it's unique to diamonds, and what causes their superior hardness and chemical indifference and is definitely part if what makes them special.
