Valentine’s Day is looming large and pink on the horizon, which means every man, boy and gent with a girlfriend, fiance or wife is sweating. And spending. And sweating some more.
One sure-fire way to stay in good romantic graces is with a gift of jewelry. Diamonds, as they say — or rubies, sapphires, pearls and platinum — are a girl’s best friend.
(So women get precious stones as a best friend. And what do men get? Dogs — slobbering dorky little beasts who can lick their own balls. Hardly seems fair, does it?
Sorry, ladies. We’re still not trading.)
Of course, the question when buying exorbitantly-priced bits of shiny rock is where to buy them. So as a Valentine’s week service to all the men out there trying to avoid sleeping on the couch till April, I hit up a few of the biggest jewelers around for some answers. Or maybe a free sample for the missus. It never hurts to ask.
Read on for my bejeweled inquiries — and my actual posts on the companies’ Facebook walls. Take it to heart, fellas: diamonds are forever, but being shut out of the bedroom for buying the wrong trinkets? That’s an eternity. Trust me on this one.
