Still remember Mamarazzi post on my newborn cousin last month? We went shopping at The Curve the other day for the baby's "Full Moon" Celebration gift.
Papa said give "angpau". Mamarazzi said it's customary to give jewellery, preferably gold.
Walked to a few jewellery shop. The gold price is very high nowadays and surprisingly there are a lot of great offers on Diamonds. Mamarazzi can't help glancing at the Diamond section. She was really attracted to the diamonds.
But then though the price was cheap but she dare not buy them. She recalled reading Auntie Cleff's post regarding Blood Diamonds, on how many people where tortured and lost their life in order for us to have these diamonds.
But lucky for vain pots like Mamarazzi as there are other option such as lab grown diamonds. These are diamonds that are grown by man and it's eco-friendly. It's not fake diamond. It have the same physical, chemical and optical properties as those mined.
At one of the shops that Mamarazzi went to, she saw some colourful diamonds. The Jeweller said those are pricier that the normal diamonds as stones like that are hard to come by. Mamarazzi recalled coming across a website that sell eco-friendly diamond which stock some delightful Yellow Canary Diamonds and the price was cheaper too.
Chinese would love these yellow diamonds because Feng Shui wise, yellow is a very auspicious colour. Yellow means $$$ coming in. Maybe Mamarazzi should get one for me. Money come..money come...
Want to know what did Mamarazzi end up getting for my baby cousin? It's something yellow.
