it's same the other way around.
otherwise why do high-end brands even exist?
They exist for people who are obsessed with a "brand". However, a diamond is a diamond. As long as the carat, color, cut, clarity, brilliance, etc all match there is no difference between a Tiffany's diamond or some other diamond. AThere is no reason to pay a premium just to have it come in a tiny blue box. A BMW or Audi might use a more advanced suspension, more high strength steel, better quality materials then a civic so that justifies the price premium.
If my fiancee made a big stink about her ring not being from a name brand I'd be reconsidering if she's someone I'd want to marry because contrary to popular belief, the brand or size of the ring doesn't mean how much you love her. I bought her ring from a friend who owns a jewelry store for well under $10k and she loves it to death. If I spent $20k or more on a ring she'd probably beat me and make me take it back and get something cheaper.
