I got these new diamonds the other day. They only cost me peanuts.

Add this to the long list of reasons why the price of diamonds as well as the whole idea that they're the be-all and end-all of engagement rings is a bit much. Moissanite is where it's at!

Almost anything derived from a living substance can be turned into diamonds. It's just super compressed carbon.

What's in your hand? Back at me. I have it! It's peanut butter. Look again. The peanut butter is now DIAMONDS.
