10 Fun Things to Do with Your Diamond
You and your diamond have had quite the run, haven’t you? It’s stayed on your left ring finger, around your neck, on your nose or belly button, or some other place we won’t discuss right now, for a nice long while. You’ve seen various parts of this great country of ours together; heck, you’ve maybe even crossed seas and gazed upon grandiose iconic worldly sights as one.
But, like all relationships, things can eventually turn stale.
It doesn’t seem to sparkle as brightly when you glance at it now – or maybe you’re just not appreciating it the way you once did. Well, the only solution is to jump start your once powerful bond and leave the stagnant waters of complacency behind. Here are ten fun things you can do with your diamond to bring the luster back into your brilliantly shared life.
1) Wear your engagement ring to a Singles Night.
Look, everybody loves attention; your diamond is definitely no exception. When you proudly don your diamond engagement ring to a singles night, numerous potential suitors (and even a few curious ladies) will inquire about what you are doing there/why are you wearing the ring/can they possibly join you in a polygamous union? As you flirtatiously flaunt your diamond around and talk all about it, the two of you will feel a renewed kinship and complicit affinity for one another.
2) Bring it to a basket/foot/baseball game and when the Kiss Cam gets to you, shove your loved one out of the way and kiss your diamond instead.
What better way to make the whole world jealous than to project your love onto the jumbo-tron? With that beautifully cheesy heart graphic superimposed around you two, your friends at home watching ESPN will be simultaneously jealous…and baffled. Your diamond will be eternally grateful for the unbridled outburst of affection.
3) Take it to a Natural History Museum and show your diamond its roots.
Have you ever taken the time to let your diamond really reminisce about where it comes from? Hit the Geology wing of any reputable museum and let your diamond stroll down memory lane as it recounts its time as a young, wide-eyed piece of carbon, hanging with its friends deep beneath the earth’s crust. Let it regale you with the enthralling tale of how it shot up on the Kimberlite express to the planet’s surface, eventually making its way to your finger; and into your heart.
4) Hang around a section of a jewelry store where the diamonds showcased are all of a smaller size and/or inferior quality.
Nothing boosts your diamond’s spirits like letting it feel superior to others. Let’s face it, the diamond world is a highly competitive one; each stone is precisely measured and evaluated, and microscopic flaws can have a dramatic impact on its desirability. When you compare your diamond to a bunch of less attractive stones, it will feel like a million bucks. Add to this tantalizing tableau a bunch of onlookers, shopping for their own diamond, who can only gaze at yours in envy. The perfect jolt to your team-self-esteem.
5) Attend a lecture on a serious topic of some sort; use your diamond to reflect light into the presenter/orator’s eye.
Executing wacky pranks with your loved stone instantly interjects a little joy back into your waning relationship. Utilizing your diamond’s primary strength (that of reflecting/refracting light – in this case, into the ocular region of some boring person), will have the two of you giggling with glee. Well, you at least (the diamond has no mouth).
6) On the night of the first snowfall of the year, throw your diamond into the pristine white blanket of snow – then find it.
Toss that cherished stone directly into the awaiting ivory mounds. Wait a minute. Then begin your quest.
As you frantically paw at the accumulated snow, freezing your little digits off, you will feel a growing sense of urgency and reinvigorated passion for your diamond. The thought that you will never find it crosses your mind, and you even panic a bit. Once you see that tiny sparkle amongst the fallen flakes, you will breathe a sigh of relief like no other. Reunited with your diamond, you’ll see how much it truly means to you. From your diamond’s perspective, it’s quite the adventure as well; surrounded by millions of snow flakes (which are all singular and unique, just like every diamond) it can undergo a humbling experience too.
7) Watch any of these films about diamond heists together.
Have your very own “Netflix and chill” session with your diamond. The two of you will unconsciously feel the need to cuddle close together as onscreen gems are stolen from their rightful owners. You will clutch your diamond ever so tightly, reassured that the two of you truly belong together for eternity.
8) Have a spa/pamper day-cum-ring cleaning.
Get your hair, nails and face did – all while your diamond looks on. Take it to the jeweler for its own cleansing and you’ll have quite the rewarding reciprocal endeavor.
9) Create an instagram account that is soley selfies of you and your diamond.
After your friends and loved ones see the glorious series of shots of just the two of you together, all you need to tell them is this: don’t be #jelly.
10) Etch your love to the world.
That’s right; it’s time for some good ole fashioned graffiti. Using your diamond’s unfathomably hard edges, scratch you and your diamond’s initials (encircled in a big heart) all over town (*if you do not know your diamond’s initials, feel free to just inscribe its GIA certification number). Into the town’s oldest oak tree, the huge bay window at the mall, your annoying neighbor’s car; there’s literally no surface you can’t use to espouse you and your diamond’s undying love. Seeing your mutual affection indelibly raked into the canvases of everyday life, you will once again feel in your heart that the two of you are made for each other (…one of you made by other humans, the other made by heat, pressure and dirt).
Hopefully, after employing these delightful techniques, you and your diamond will fully appreciate each other once again. If these methods just dont do the trick, alas, it is sad to say that all hope may be lost for you and your little gem friend. If this is the case, it probably is time to part ways and move on in a sensitive, mature and morally conscientious way. Why not let someone else enjoy your diamond?
