Why Engagement Rings Are a Scam

The ‘tradition’ of buying an diamond ring to seal the deal turns out not to be much of a tradition. At all.
Less than 100 years ago a very clever diamond company began to brainwash loved up couples into believing you simply cannot become engaged without the biggest rock affordable. So it turns out, millions of guys have been manipulated into spending their hard earned cash. How can we put a stop to this world wide scam? The sad truth is, it’s probably too late! The expectation is out there now.
