As a material scientist, I love diamond. it's suuuuper cool material, that carbon can bond in som many allotropes is absolutely amazing. and it's the building block of all life. a perfect stable tetrahedral covalent bonding of exactly like atoms. makes it an amazing conductor, very stable at temperature, strong, hard, diamond is absolutely an amazing material.

Even more amazing is synthetic diamond. It's already incredible enough to imagine this being formed from basic everyday carbons manipulated by randomly occuring natural forces, but to be able to do that ourselves with science is truly a triumph of our understanding of materials and the relationships between the processing, microstructures and properties.

But for gaudy expensive jewelry it's stupid. and ignorant. Because for as amazing as man made diamond is, you can get cubix zirc made more easily and if you needed big flamboyant sparkly shit like some manic magpie, it's actually got better optical properties than diamond, like it's a better and cheaper fit for the same end. Like where else do you have the inferior product being more expensive. (iphones maybe? heheh)
