Simulated Diamonds

February 14th 2008

That shiny sparkling stone you got from your lover... is that a diamond? Lab manufactured diamonds are getting exceedingly good. They have the same color, clarity, cut and carat as minded diamonds and —since they are created in a laboratory— you can be sure they are 'conflict free'. The one in the picture (below) is from Israel (speaking of conflict free zones) and can be bought here. Of course, if you really want something exclusive for your lover, you should forget about diamonds altogether and get some biojewellery.

Smells like a new Fake For Real card...

Israel does not fit with my definition of "conflict free zone". Sad but true.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
