I never used to like diamonds all that much and always thought that crystals are the more practical choice seeing as I've had a traumatic experience of losing a black pearl diamond pendant back in 1999 and my mom is STILL harping on about it. Yet as another birthday goes by, I find myself lusting about these little sparkling gems much like a crow is attracted to blingy items. Am I getting old? Or have I fallen prey again to consumerism and marketing plots? I don't have the answer but I find that I can't quite stray my eyes away from De Beer's summer collection. What do you think dear readers? Are these worth coveting?
