Sometimes things just sneak up on me. I don't pay much attention to what seems to me like the lighter side of women's image issues - cosmetics, fashion, etc. But I do pay attention to words. This ad says:
What extraordinary love looks like
I've got some grammatical issues here. But when it comes right down to it, love doesn't look like anything. And diamonds look like - well - diamonds.
The ad goes on to say: "Cartier has created the most beautiful diamond rings so that a woman can feel how extraordinary the love she inspires can be." You might need to reread that.I sense how carefully these words were chosen. More grammer and style issues, but if a woman isn't already feeling how extraordinary the love she inspires is, I don't see how jewelry is going to make that happen. I do appreciate some jewelry for its intrinsic beauty. And I can wax poetic about love and the sentiment underlying gifts and tokens of love. But this just sounds crass to me. Now I'm going to go look up "crass."
