I called Jennifer this afternoon and told her I had ordered the pink diamond and told her how much it cost. She said, “that’s way too much money! I can’t accept that when there are people starving in the streets. What about a synthetic diamond?” I looked on Google while we were on the phone and a synthetic 4 carat pink diamond is a LOT cheaper, so she said that’s what she wants. She said she’d never wear the real diamond for fear of losing it. She said a lab grown diamond is exactly the same on a molecular level as a natural diamond.
So I called the jeweler and asked him to cancel the order and get me a 4 carat lab grown fancy pink diamond in white gold and exactly the same specifications. He said it would take about a week.
We’re going out to dinner with Amelie tonight.
