Today In science class we were given the homework of asking ten family and friends to answer a question...

Would you rather have a 3 karat natural diamond or a 5 karat Synthetic diamond.

Now this may seem like an easy question at the surface but if you really think about it then it gets a little deeper.

3 Karat Natural: Sure, it comes with the knowledge that it came from the bowels of the Earth and was once magma but cooled to become something beautiful. It can signify eternal love and the heat of passion. But it comes with a price, and not just money. What if it was used to buy landmines and weapons for a war in Africa? This is an extremely common situation. Then there is of course Blood Diamonds, when the mine workers cut their bodies open and stuff the diamonds into their arms and flesh just so they can feed their family. The mines are like prisons, and the conditions are horrible.

5 Karat Synthetic: Pre-ordered, manufactured, and doesn't coome with the knowledge that it was once nothing but carbon or that it was born from deep within the Earth. But its also not tainted with blood.

If my girl would rather have the more expensive diamond that was found through slave labor and death than an alternative she wouldn't be my girl for long

Many companies sell diamonds that are not from africa...

Most of the time the history is near impossible to trace, though.

Canadian diamonds.

Edit: DAMN YOU! GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Ok, I'll help.

Given the case that I was dumb enough to buy any kind of diamonds, I would assure that they come from a well controlled source such as Canada or Australia, because I wouln't want to contribute to the violation of Human Rights in African diamond mines.

If I had to choose, I would take whichever one was heavier and throw it at someone I really didn't like, seriously diamonds and diamond currency are the stupidest fucking invention the human race has managed to contrive. If a girl asked me to get her a diamond I would dump her that second, if not punch her in the ovaries outright.

EDIT: And to above, I am dead serious, although I understand if you don't use my reply

Natural diamond for me. I have no soul so I don't really worry about how it was mined. I just know she likes it.
#31
As long as no one else knows (that is, the person I'm giving it to) I'd choose synthetic.

I'm sure my girlfriend would appreciate my reasoning though. I don't want people dying for something as useless as a diamond.

Neither. If I got it for free, the logical side of me would choose a natural diamond, worth more = mo money = mo honey, but I'd probably feel a bit guilty about it.

I dunno, it's all a matter of money when you come down to it. Synthetic are cheaper, but some women will be pissed even at the proposition of wearing a synthetic diamond.

You realize the main reason they are called blood diamonds is because they are used to fund warfare, not because people hid them inside their body.

Those are "conflict diamonds." It's different.

No, the names are used interchangeably.


Other names used are converted diamond, hot diamond or a war diamond. They're all the same thing.


Blood diamonds, often called conflict diamonds, are mined in war torn African countries by rebels to fund their conflict. The rebels grossly abuse human rights, often murdering and enslaving the local populations to mine the diamonds.
