considering he's one of the few rich dudes who actually spent his money on something worthwhile (philathropy etc.), i doubt he'd buy a ring of diamond just for ***** and giggles

Considering how rare the object is, or even that it's the first of it's kind, It might be worth buying as an investment, or family heirloom (The Expensive as **** kind)

Well considering he bought the Da Vinci's notebook for 30 million dollars, so he could study and release it to the public; I doubt he would buy a piece of Jewelry when he could put that money into his foundation to rebuild and support the 3rd word. So his treasured family heirloom would be the pride of breathing life into the poorest and most desperate part of the world, the pride of being a Gates.

It's diamond, not glass. A diamond is so hard, that the only way to even scratch it to shape it, jewelcutters would use a knife made out of diamond.

Yeah it's hard to cut but it breaks really easy
The harder something is the easier it breaks
If you drop that diamond on the ground it'll shatter really easily.
But if you want to scratch it you'll have one ******* long ass day

although you are right, it's brittle, in comparison to its hardness. it isn't, however, as brittle as say - glass, or china. you would have to be intentionally trying to break it, in order to do so, although it wouldn't bee too difficult.

yeah. its so solid that it can only be effectively cut with another sharpened diamond

True, but it is also brittle, if you hit it with something like a hammer or a rock it would break easily

it's kinda hard to explain. They break very easily if hit from the angles (let's call them rifts) where the crystalization forms. hitting it anywhere is pretty much hitting a shiny rock.

I really don't care if Bill Gates can afford a few of those per day...or if it is a waste of a diamond...I want to know why the **** half the world cannot tell the difference between "lose" and "loose" ...

Actually they have many more uses than just jewelry. They are used as cutting instruments in many tools used throughout the world today, as well as used in science for many great experiments such as those in the field of thermal dynamics and biology. Oh, and they are pretty well the greatest thermal conductor in the world and are being looked into to be used to create faster and more energy efficient computers. Oh, I almost forgot; cancer treatments. They are used in cancer treatments. You should try to expand upon your "implied" knowledge and try reading sometime.

It's not only for more efficient computers- theyre planning to use synth diamonds for phones, stereos, cars, trains and other vehicles.

Diamonds are actually common as ****. They're only valuable because jewelry stores glorify them and the russians won't release their reserve.

This guy is actually right, Diamonds became much less valuable when massive deposits of them were discovered in Africa. The only reason they are still regarded are "Rare" or "valuable" is because the amount released into the market is regulated to prevent the collapse of the market.

Sizing it up sounds easy enough, they just widdle away the inside and repolish it. Though I guess if you want it sized down you buy a new one...

Widdle?
This is a classic example of someone spelling a word based on how they heard it pronounced on an American TV show...

It's 'whittle'

Well. I assume if you are paying that much it better be custom fit. Otherwise it is pointless.
