The DeBeers diamond cartel, in an effort to relieve slagging sales announces the right-hand ring for women. This is like the sad story where a friend of a friend threw herself a ‘staying single shower’. Sometimes empowerment looks like an easy reach to shore up your self-esteem. I’m all for everbody decked out in a girl’s best friend – but is this just another manufacture trend that commodifies women’s lib to sell inflated baubles? But never ever trust the over-inflated, slavery-soaked diamonds of the DeBeers cartel.
