Re: Looking for a kitten in the Connecticut area (Boston oka

Missy, I shared the information you posted with my friend. Thank you! CJ, I don't think that's going to work out in this particular instance. My friends are not in a financial position to fly over a pet from PR. They are considering getting one from here, in CA when they come out to visit though. Th...

Looking for a kitten in the Connecticut area (Boston okay).

Anyone have a kitten that needs a home in the Connecticut area? I may have one.

Only one home, though.

Re: Help me find a RBC J color, 7.2mm diameter for $6500

J's are only slightly tinted. https://enchanteddiamonds.com/diamonds/view/R150-CTWYT6 That stone has potential. But you have to make sure the fluorescence isn't making it hazy. You need to ask them to pull the stone and examine it for you to make sure it is not 'overblue' and that the fluorescence i...

Re: What to choose ...

You have no idea what you are doing. You are wasting money looking at VVS stones. The entire purpose of faceting a diamond is to reflect light. How well or how poorly a diamond does this determines how beautiful it is. How well a diamond performs is determined by the angles and cutting. This is why ...

Re: Newbie with $6.5k budget needs advice.

I wouldn't go below G and VS2. I would optimize the cut, clarity and color and see for my budget what carat i get. This is not good advice. An I Si1 that is eyeclean could be the best for his budget. Or an H. And they will face up white. There is no reason to stick with G and above. As for VS2. No ...

Re: Low Income Women to Lose Birth Control

Subsidized programs helped me so that I didn't have any children until I wanted to - carefully planned, wanted children, that I could afford, and that I had full insurance coverage for. It should clearly remain an option - if you need proof, the Colorado study should be all you need to see. Well, t...

Gypsy, I've enjoyed your jewelry posts. If memory serves, you are one of the stars here. So I'm disappointed that you choose to personally attack me.

Re: Can one use .25 and .30 in an eternity band?

No. Not unless you do them in a pattern of every other. The size difference will be noticable. Just call up a good vendor like Wink at HPD and work with him to get you the rest of the stones. You don't need a lab report for stones that size if you shop at a vendor that reputable. A Sarin on them is ...

Re: D VS1 or E VVS2-H&A for same price?

I wouldn't pay for either clarity.

I would go for an F VS2. You won't be able to tell it apart from either of those with the naked eye. And you can either save the money for a nicer setting, or the wedding.
