To jewelers, the untrained eye is a menace, as a man buying an engagement ring will not care about the carats or the uniqueness of the piece, as long as it ‘looks like Beyonce’s.’ While jewelers are making pieces with unpopular gems and metals at excessive prices, salesmen struggle to sell these, as what is popular is what sells.
