Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend

Happy Birthday Dear Diamonds, Happy Birthday To You!

Diamonds are a girl's best friend

April is the month of the Diamond, and those born in April can claim the Diamond as their Birthstone. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend….

A blog site better known as bite-size history reported interesting facts about the diamond industry and how we came to celebrate and adore the abundance of the sparkly stone. De Beers and the rest of the world in the 50’s began to benefit on a big level….. Hollywood was very involved in causing the materialistic connection and status as it related to the diamond. In 1982, Atlantic Magazine published a famous investigative article called, Have you ever tried to sell a diamond? The article traced the roots of the diamond industry as we know it today back to the late 19th Century. In the 1880s, a deluge of diamond mines were being developed in South Africa flooding the market with diamonds. In 1888, investors in these mines consolidated their interests by forming De Beers Consolidated Mines, Ltd. 

De Beers became the single entity controlling the world’s supply of diamonds and all aspects of production. Instead of allowing the market to be oversupplied with cheap diamonds, the formation of De Beers allowed the industry to control the supply of diamonds, propping up the price and creating an image that would “perpetuate the illusion of scarcity of diamonds”.

Read the entire history about why we fork out way beyond the actual value when it comes to this natural stone (found on earth in abundance). 

Marilyn Monroe was known for many musicals and movies, but a few standout. One of the famous musicals was Gentlemen prefer Blondes. This Musical was remembered by the song “A Diamond is a Girl’s Best Friend!” The lyrics were compelling, to say the least… But it stuck in many Traditionalist’s minds and even Baby Boomers were hooked. The X-ers may have gotten infected by their  Marilyn obsessed Parents or ( Fathers or Grand Fathers). The fact remains when we listen to her voice ..Diamonds, Diamonds, Diamonds, I don’t need Rhine Stones…we get sucked into the whole sensual, sexy irreplaceable Marilyn that helped women around the globe for the rest of their lives.

 

No, no no no no…. but Diamonds are a girl’s best friend …

 

Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend
Marilyn Monroe
The French are glad to die for love
They delight in fighting duels
But I prefer a man who lives
And gives expensive jewels
A kiss on the hand
May be quite continental
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend
A kiss may be grand
But it won’t pay the rental
On your humble flat
Or help you at the automat
Men grow cold
As girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end
But square-cut or pear-shaped
These rocks don’t lose their shape
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend
Tiffany’s
Cartier
Black Starr
Frost-Gorham
Talk to me Harry Winston
Tell me all about it
There may come a time
When a lass needs a lawyer
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend
There may come a time
When a hard-boiled employer
Thinks you’re awful nice
But get that ice or else no dice
He’s your guy
When…

Wonder about the most famous slogan in the world?

Diamonds are forever! 

Diamonds are forever - this lady worked for Debeers and came up with the most brilliant slogan ever - Diamonds are a girl's best friend 

Frances Gerety, the copywriter behind the slogan, “A Diamond Is Forever” This famous line was the brainchild of Frances Gerety, an employee of Philadelphia advertising agency N.W. Ayer & Son. Gerety wrote all of the company’s ads for 25 years. In the 1930’s, the agency was hired by De Beers to help to create demand for diamonds after the devastation of the Great Depression.

The line “A Diamond Is Forever” has come to define how we think about diamond rings. In 1999, two weeks before Ms. Gerety died at the age of 83, Advertising Age named it the slogan of the century.

 

Many women have tried to imitate Marilyn in their attempt to do so many failed.

This Music Video produced by Fox in 1999 Kylie Minogue in Australia is pretty darn good. Vocally superior to Marilyn and very impressive performance, but she is not Marilyn Monroe. Her Vocals are amazing… what is missing? The seductiveness and sex appeal of Marilyn Monroe can’t be imitated.
