"Let's take a look at the pendants." My wife said to me when we were passing by a diamond retailer shop while we were enjoying our time together without the kids at a shopping mall.
As you might have guessed, I was reluctantly dragged into the shop. It's not that I don't like diamonds. It's the price that is killing me. And I always think diamonds are not a good investment vehicle, might as well I buy something else (like gold) if I have the spare cash. Diamonds are definitely the last on my list.
Back to the story. My wife and I were given a crash course on diamonds by the salesperson at the shop. I quickly transformed from a diamond idiot to someone who knows a little bit about diamonds. Hey, at least I know the four C's of diamonds.
It looked like I was more interested to get to know diamond than my wife. As we sailed through the training, we were unknowingly presented with top of the range diamonds available. Of course, they looked stunning and amazingly attractive, even to me!
We were cautious not to fall into the trap. I must say that my wife knew what she wanted. She was strong enough not to be swayed away.
Even though the shop did not have the design my wife loved, I think it's fair enough for my wife to have a gift of diamond. This is for her support she has been providing me, not to mention love and care, and two children that she gave birth to.
Next time, I will have no problems stopping by at any diamond shops until my wife gets what she wants… if the price is not too scary.
