Seriously, the advertising says it all. "A woman's best friend", "How many karats do you love me", etc. Pure transmutation of idiocy into ego.

Shiny! I'm not sure about stupidity - humans are attracted to beauty / patterns and want to possess diamonds for their intrinsic properties rather than those marketed to them. Whilst its true that diamonds have little non-social value to most people, they can provide an emotional attachment for those who possess them.
