One Ring to Bind Them All?

Share & Comment

This presentation is delivered for Barcamp Singapore 7 which is held on 10 Sep 2011 in Block 71, Mediapolis Singapore. It’s a presentation meant for me to share. In this talk, I present the economics, myths and science in searching for an engagement diamond ring for my fiancee. For example, I will also cover the 4Cs of diamonds (Clarity Cut, Color and Carat) in a layman manner and some tips on how to purchase the ring. The story helped me realized that each man’s search for the one ring is unique and filled with intrigue and interest.

    1. I actually did that during the talk when I cover the chemical structure of diamonds and also how synthetic diamonds can be created artificially as well. But thanks for the note, Gen. :)

  1. I thought it is a pun when I see the topic in barcamp! Luckily I attended, because it is one of the most interesting and funny session.

    But you have a bit of anti climax when you ended up buying tiffany & co.. 

    1. Thanks for the note, Junda. 

      You are right that it’s a bit of an anti-climax that I ended up buying a Tiffany and Co ring, which is a Plan B. If I have an US bank account or went to two of my American friends who told me that I should have asked them, I would have gotten the diamond ring I wanted. :)
      I will update the post with some of the tips that I spoke about during the talk so that everyone will get some idea what I spoke about.
