    That makes no sense whatsoever. Who pays for it- would Victoria's Secret put up $10MM to build a bra so it can be shown off in a catalog? That's a pretty big waste of marketing money, if you ask me. And what happens to it? Does anyone actually buy these things?

    Yep.

    Probably only cost them 6MM to have made... maybe only 3MM. Look at all the Pub they're getting. And if no one buys it.. the diamonds are still worth... well the lions share... of the cost of the Bra...

    Women love Diamonds. Men Love Bras (or at least what they contain).

    Its sheer genius.

    If no one buys it it can always be made into something else... say a shit load of ear rings and necklaces that someone will buy... so it's not really a waste of money at all. diamonds don't have a one use lifespan.
     
  8. VS has done this a few time, normally around xmas. Sometimes they throw in a vacation with it. At least one time someone did pay the multimillion dollar price tag.

    Diamonds are rocks that come out of the ground.
    Marketing has made them valuable.
    You have to be crazy to pay anything near $10M for rocks.

    <Male Rant Off>

    Tyra looks like a $1 million, maybe $10 million with it off?

    You can stick Jennifer Love Hewitt's tits in that bra and uprgade its value from 10 big ones to priceless.

    Hell, with $10 million worth of diamonds on it, you could stick MY tits in there and it would still be worth a bundle.

    Bingo, as much as marketing it has been the forced and voluntary collaboration of the countries and companies that mine diamonds. Before being found in southern Africa diamonds were only found in small quantities in South America and <ST1:place w:st="on"><?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:country-region w:st="on">Russia</st1:country-region></ST1:place>. After being discovered in <ST1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">South Africa</st1:country-region></ST1:place>, there was a "diamond rush" until a brit named Cecil Rhodes decided to buy up many of these minds with the intent of controlling the demand. The mission was later taken up by a brilliant but cold blooded German, Ernest Oppenheimer, who would kill those who did not corporate with him or stole from him, all with the permission of the local governments. This Cartel is of course known as De Beers. They break many many <st1:country-region w:st="on"><ST1:place w:st="on">US</ST1:place></st1:country-region> anti-trust laws. They get around it by not directly selling in the US, they sell in London, using strong arm techniques to force less desirable diamonds to be purchased and passed onto the consumers as well as desirable ones.<O:p></O:p>

    <O:p></O:p>

    Oppenheimer's grandson now travels around trying to convince people the <st1:country-region w:st="on"><ST1:place w:st="on">US</ST1:place></st1:country-region> should make an exception to antitrust law for them to help poor African countries and associating De Beers with the African Growth and Opportunity Act. As if De Beers would not start helping the poor African countries now, after not doing so the last hundred years. This is the hypothetical equivalent to Jesse Jackson saying that enforcing <st1:country-region w:st="on">US</st1:country-region> drug laws is a conscious effort of the <st1:country-region w:st="on"><ST1:place w:st="on">US</ST1:place></st1:country-region> to keep the black community poor. I don’t know who is buying his BS, but I sure am not.<O:p></O:p>

    <O:p></O:p>

    While De Beers does not sell in the US, they certainly advertise here and are recognized as one of the worlds most desirable brands, however I will be avoiding products by this criminal cartel with a history of murder and using strong-arm tactics.<O:p></O:p>

    <O:p></O:p>

    It would not surprise me if the price of diamonds comes down dramatically in my lifetime, but they have been saying that for decades. De Beers has been increasingly concentrating on branding and microscopically brands all of their high end diamonds.<O:p></O:p>

    <O:p></O:p>

    That being said, I sure wouldn't kick tyra out of my bed if she showed up in a bra full of De Beers diamonds.<O:p></O:p>
