I wanted a rhinestone when I first got engaged. They’re a heck of a lot cheaper, look just like real diamonds, and after watching Blood Diamond, a rhinestone would satisfy my conscience. There wouldn’t be any child slavery or warfare over a rhinestone. I’m surprised that they haven’t caught on more, given the economy and such. I think it’s silly to spend over 2 grand on an engagement ring when that money could be put toward a down payment on a house or car. Diamonds aren’t practical. But, I guess there’s so much resistance against “fake” stuff that a rhinestone won’t ever become popular.
This Copper Clone fire pit is a knock off of the popular copper fire pits. It’s made from steel, but has a high heat copper coloring over it to make it look like a copper fire pit. I think copper is gorgeous, but it drives me nuts when it starts to have that blue-green patina over time. You won’t get that with this fire pit because it’s not real copper, so it won’t discolor.
I’m sure simulated copper isn’t as big of a deal as a simulated diamond, but there’s still this negative undercurrent when people find out it’s not real. But I say, if something looks like the real thing without the disadvantages of the real thing, what’s the problem? Steel is an incredibly durable material for an outdoor fire pit, and does well with the burning wood/ash as well. It won’t corrode like copper can, and the copper color is high heat treated, so it won’t melt away when you have a fire. Overall, I think it’s a classy wood burning fire pit.
