Editorial Reviews

Mara Altman relates, in her own voice, the story of her engagement to her boyfriend Dave and the weight, both literal and figurative that choosing a ring presents. With ample doses of humor and honest, unabashed neurosis Altman talks about the significance of wearing a "price tag" on her finger and what it means or should mean to her and Dave. She then plunges into the larger symbolism; from the history of the DeBeers Company’s marketing of the diamond to the actual legal implications of an engagement ring. In her quest Altman realizes that the implications of the subject are vast yet she tackles it with charm and a voice that sparkles and giggles at tradition and her own complex desires.

Publisher's Summary

Last fall, newly-engaged author Mara Altman rejected the showy sparkle of a multi-carat diamond ring, and chose instead a simple, three-figure bauble. But why? There began her reportorial journey to find the true connection of diamonds to marriage - and to love.
