      Every baby boomer diva needs a diamond.  Not just one—-but several pieces are needed to accent our different outfits.  Here are the top ten reasons women love diamonds:

      1.  Women love to be spoiled especially those of us who grew up being Daddy's girl.  

      The price of a diamond may equal to a 2 to 3 months salary of your man, and no fool is willing to spend that much on you if he is not serious about his intentions. There are other means of showing love, but is there a better way of proving it than with diamond? Well if not, for me, maybe a mansion in Malibu would do! Okay, I'm kidding.

      2. Because we can show it off to our friends

      Your eyes may roll, but as a woman having a normal circle of girl friends, when somebody is about to get hitched, we judge the purchasing power of her soon-to-be husband by the engagement ring he gives her. Diamonds are so far the most extravagant expression of love when we talk about engagement rings. A cubic zirconia may be cheaper and exhibit less flaws, but it feels better wearing the real thing.

      3. It makes us feel like a princess

      We may not have the amount of diamonds Princess Diana possess when she was still the reigning Princess of Wales, but nonetheless, this will make her feel extra-special.

      4. It’s a symbol of social status

      Not everybody can afford to have diamonds, not all fianc├ęs can buy it for their girls. So having a diamond on your hand means you have a more comfortable life than the rest or it was given to you by someone who has the financial resources.

      5. Because it proves how committed the guy is.

      He is willing to go, err, spend, the extra mile to convey his love for her.  What type of woman will not be flattered if a guy spoils her this way? Another point is, when a man asks you to put the ring around your finger, it's like telling the world that you are already committed to him. It's a confirmation that the guy is willing to be yours.    

      6. It's luster is eye-catching.  

      Certainly, a diamond on a woman's hands won't go unnoticed. The luster is attention grabbing. So the bigger they are, the more eye-catching it gets. The lady wearing it would be very pleased with the attention she gets.

      7. Because we can be a subject of envy.

      Others would think we‘re fortunate for having been gifted a diamond by her beau. Expect the most envious reaction from his ex-girlfriend whom he promised to wed but never did.

      8. It’s glamorous and expensive!  

      Diamonds are the best evening accessories. They make you sparkle, they make you glitter. It shows an air of sophistication and class.

      9. Because diamonds are forever.

      A man giving her woman a hard-earned diamond signifies that he sees her as a part of his future. But if a man is wealthy enough, don't easily fall for it. He can buy the biggest rock and can divorce you within six-month expiration. .

      10. Because we deserve the best!
