Something that is completely void of any real long lasting value. Nothing more than compacted carbon. Something that can be manufactured in a factory.
Nebulous, valueless, and offering nothing of value (atleast in the form of jewelry, which is the only thing twats care about), yet we're supposed to care because, "reasons". The only thing that gives diamonds the value that they do, are the meticulous efforts of social engineers, and the idiotic hive-mind delusions of a dying culture. Something only an idiot would base great importance on. Something only an idiot would go into debt for.
Something valued only by those who do not understand what is truly valuable.
Yup. Sounds like "love" to me. There is no better symbol.
PS: Never found a diamond honing stone that I liked. Nothing substitutes a natural stone; if stone isn't enough, ceramics work much better than diamond imho.
Diamonds are much too abrasive and leave much to be desired when it comes to the finesse one needs to hone a useful tool. Work fine if that's all you have on you, but there are much better alternatives.
Again, a perfect metaphor for modern day relationshits

To salvage what humanity remains within us, we must learn to embrace the wildness within us. We must plumb the depths of our ancestral memory to seek who and what we truly are, and leave the ploughshare behind us forever.
