Which one is real? Why is authenticity important?
You would have to look very close to determine which one of these pictures represents an authentic diamond. When determining authenticity perhaps you would look at clarity or even look at the cut of the diamond. Perhaps some would look at the size to determine authenticity. There are a number of tests that you can conduct to tell the difference between a genuine diamond and a fake. The authenticity of a diamond is important because it measures the rings VALUE. I speak with people daily that are faced with being true and authentic. To be transparent and REAL, I have struggled with this as well. It is very easy to represent different faces to so many people while masking your true self for fear of not being accepted. What I’ve come to realize is that I am really not any different from the diamond. Value is measured internally and not externally. To understand your purpose and value you must seek clarity and be true to yourself. So my question to you is which picture do you represent?
