That's my plan for this summer. Learn how to make a ring and cast some of my gold into an engagement ring. Hoping to find a nice garnet too.

That's maybe worth £40k if it's a clear white diamond.

Marriage is a bizarre arrangement.

The man presents the woman with a worthless piece of rock in exchange for the right to insert his penis into her for the rest of her life.

Assumes "Crater of Diamonds" in Arkansas - reads TFA... Yup.

That's a hell of a tourist trap, but I hope his yellow, deeply flawed, diamond looks better after he has it cut, polished, and mounted:

Because right now I'll bet he's spent more cash and time than that rock is worth.

Presumably, De Beers then moved in, claimed pre-existing mineral rights to the land, took the diamond, then convinced the government to fine the man for mining where he didn't have rights.

People pick up diamonds quite regularly in Arkansas. Diamonds are only valuable for their real usefulness, and only high-priced because of marketing.

I asked my girl to marry me after buying a sandwich at a deli.  Now, we are reminded of that day every single time we get sandwiches...which is often.  Tell me, which one of these stories is more romantic in the long term?  The event, itself, is extraordinary.  If you feel you need to make these types of gestures to make your proposal extraordinary, you may need to ask yourself why you need to do that.

Diamonds aren't rare on earth. Rather common really. It's only rare to find colorless and clear ones of any size.

Stuff like he found ends up on eBay and other resellers. They have Thousands for sale right now:

Yeah, ^^This^^

When I told Mrs Alt that I would make her any wedding ring she wanted, I mean after all, I know how to forge/cast and am a precision machinist, how hard could it be to make a a set of white gold rings with multiple square cut channel settings?

Used lost wax casting process and hand carved the wax, hand set the stones. Took four different casting attempting before I got it right.

Came out better than expected, but took me about 50 hours of work and a few hundred dollars in jewel tools and tooling I did not own to make the wedding band. I had a jeweler make a matching engagement ring.

Ideally, yes.
Sex is arguably the most significant thing we do with our bodies. But have you ever said "Can I kiss you...?' to a woman? Im guessing that question has only been asked four times in the history of male/female relations and answered affirmatively zero.

Your sad comment aside, very few, if any people go to jail for an unwanted kiss.

You're starting to give off a much more sinister vibe.

Youre giving off the vibe of a person who gets visibly aroused by pretending to be offended on the internet. Or maybe you are actually offended.
Im not sure which would be sadder.

I hope this is the least important thing youre confused about.

And I hope the brief, weak feeling of tepid moral superiority you got typing that comment was worth the hour it probably took you to string those big words together:)
