The Ten Commandments Diamond

  1. I've seen a lot of unique diamond cuts but this one is really different. The Trillion Diamond Company has created a Ten Commandments diamond which in which the words of the original Ten Commandments are inscribe on the table facet of the diamond. The words can be read with the aid of a magnifying glass. The company also inscribes sapphires with the same tablet-shaped cut. It comes in Catholic, Protestant and Jewish versions.

    Um. . . . I'm sure God wants us to enjoy the money we've worked hard for and at the same time be charitable, but isn't this a little too extravagant?

  2. ^ :yes:

    It seems hypocritical to me.

    The way they do the inscription is cool though...
     
  3. Mmmmmmmmmm,I think I would definately pass if one was offered to me!
     
  4. ^^^^ I'd pass it too. Don't like this idea.
     
  5. I think a nice cross (or david star or whatever represents your religion) it much better and gets the same point across, even more clearly.
     
  6. you've got to be f*cking kidding me!!! what will the fundies think of next, scripture on band-aids? on bricks they use to build houses? on their contact lenses (instead of the little 1-2-3 to see if you're putting the lens in the right way)?
     
  7. Not really my cup of tea I must say, I wonder what it retails for? My Gran would love it, she's the most religious shoppaholic I've ever met, I'm going to tell her about it next time I see her.
     
  8. That's lumped right in there with rappers wearing medallions of Jesus's head encrusted with diamonds. It's like, 'That's nice, but I think you missed the point.'
     
  9. :lol::lol::lol:
     
  10. I'm in the same agreement that I wouldn't want one either. I wear one reigious medallion, and the only reason I do is because it was my mothers. I'm giving it to my daughter on her 35th birthday next Feburary.
     
  11. ^^^^^^I think thats really lovely!!!


    The diamond I feel is a bit of a mercenary religious symbol as it cost so much!!! Do you really need such an expensive item to show your faith???? Callous marketing to me.xx
     
  12. It looks stupid imo. That's the sort of thing you make out of glass and a kid wears to Sunday school.
     
  13. To each his own.
     
  14. hahahaa... I just love some of you reactions LOL:roflmfao:
     
  15. Not my taste but is kind of cool how the write the inscription into the diamond.
