Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, they say.
But did you know that this was not always the case?
Yes, there was once a time when men didn’t offer women shiny little rocks for their hand in marriage.

Well, it turns out it’s all a result of a very elaborate marketing scheme by diamond company, De Beers.
How better to sell your product than to thread it into the society’s culture? Genius!
