Pinterest is suggesting my life choices

And all of them involve shiny things. 

A few days ago, I made a post including a GORGeous engagement ring that Pinterest had suggested to me. It was this amazingly beautiful snowflake design. I apologize to all of those who thought that I was actually getting married – I promise you’ll have a little bit more warning if that news ever actually needs to be announced 😉

But lately, Pinterest has been suggesting a LOT of rings. I’m not sure how it even started. I didn’t search for anything that would lead it to up its suggestions in any way. And we all know how I feel about diamonds. And I’m kind of over how people look at me when I say I don’t like diamonds. Especially when they work it out that it’s my birthstone as well. Maybe that’s part of it? My life has just been over saturated with the implication that I have to love diamonds so I’m rebelling against it? I don’t know.

Anyway! So Pinterest has been showing me lots and lots and lots of diamonds lately. All beautiful, over the top, diamond rings. But also some interesting rings. I’m all for living a colourful life so it’s started to suggest coloured gemstones for the rings too.

Like this beaut:

Even in the most traditional of moments, those times when diamonds are notorious for taking center stage, there's a new style of sparkling stone doing its best to steal the scene. The engagement ring scene, that is.

I mean come on!!! Look at how pretty it is!! I like to see what else the articles suggests, so I click it and there are some stunning rings in it. I finally get to the little explanation of this green piece of heaven and can you guess how much it is?!

Go on…GUESS…

Have a number ready?!

$25,000!!! I almost choked on my morning coffee over that number! That would literally pay off the rest of my student debt AND MORE. I have no idea what to even do with that number.

I’m baffled.

Pinterest can continue to suggest all the pretty rings it wants to because I love looking at how pretty they are, but I think I’ll hold firm on my “no diamond” policy. Maybe it will start to suggest non-diamond rings in the future? Maybe since I’m writing this, Pinterest will somehow find out and switch its suggestions? Seriously, if that happens I’m quitting Pinterest.

  1. Just a thought: ’tis the season for engagements. Maybe that’s why you’re seeing a lot of rings on your Pintrest feed. I myself have a diamond engagement ring that I’m infatuated with, but agree that diamonds are over priced rocks. Mine has a total carat weight of 1/3 so in diamond standards, it’s kind of puny, but I love it!
