Without alcohol, yes, its sweetened egg yolk and milk.
Only with alcohol does it become eggNOG.

Re: Do you like Eggnogs?

Lactaid eggnog is REALLY good, it actually had a good egg-yolk flavor.

Re: Final picks! Five Emerald Cuts with ASETs

Its part of being an online business, you will have returns. Also JA pays for shipping both ways on returns, GOG does not.

Re: Final picks! Five Emerald Cuts with ASETs

Your choices are #2 or #3. They look like they're both nice, but they're different... Is it possible to buy both to observe for a few days and send back the one you don't want? The dimensions are roughly the same, so you can start having your setting made and it won't matter which one you pick. None...

Re: Narrowed it down to these 3 Princess cut diamonds...help

James Allen has an upgrade policy: you have to spend 2x the original purchase price. This should be fine for most people with your budget, its not so great for people buying 2 ct 25K rocks. Its hardly worth it in your case to just upgrade to something like 7000-8000 because the size difference is no...

Re: help making the right choice.

Have you considered buying online? 8000 USD will definitely get you a full carat, with better color and clarity than K SI2.

You are having the setting made separately, right?

The jewelers who are making your setting can verify that it matches the report for you.

Re: Narrowed it down to these 3 Princess cut diamonds...help

Email or chat with customer service. Tell them you want to put these 3 diamonds on hold, and then ask for a gemologist to evaluate them. If you ask for ASETs, I believe a gemologist will automatically review them. They will not say "this is a nice diamond." They will go over everything abo...

Re: Narrowed it down to these 3 Princess cut diamonds...help

It already has an ASET on the report. Its the first time I've heard them say that, but they maybe very busy now; I can understand right before the holidays, to deny ASET requests for princesses that already come with AGS reports with ASETs. You need to pick 3 before you ask for a review. And you onl...

Re: My Blue Nile sig. ideal cushion just arrived

It still looks hazy in the latest set of pictures, but it is also obviously dirty in the latest set.

Compare it to your grandmother's stone in direct sunlight.

Re: Narrowed it down to these 3 Princess cut diamonds...help

I didn't realize the first one I suggested is not an AGS 0. The ASET looks strong, and the price is good for an H, but I can understand if you want to skip this one.

Re: Advice on B2CJewels - GIA 1.56K J VS1 Excellent Cut - H

I think the swirl setting is too thin.

1.6mm is really damn thin, and if it is paved then you have to make holes in the metal which weakens it. A thicker ring will be a better choice if she wants to wear it all the time.

Re: Narrowed it down to these 3 Princess cut diamonds...help

I don't like the first one. It has a really flat crown. The second stone from JA is an AGS 0, so that's good. I would probably ask for reviews on: http://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut/1.00-carat-h-color-si1-clarity-sku-348268 http://www.jamesallen.com/loose-diamonds/princess-cut/1.0...

Re: Advice on B2CJewels - GIA 1.56K J VS1 Excellent Cut - H

Have you ever seen a J? I/J is very popular for people who are looking for a bigger stone and don't care to have something bright white. If you want something whiter you'd have to drop to the 1.3ish range. Honestly your budget is tight even for 1.5 ct Js, only with strong fluorescence was I able to ...

that is their way of being reassuring. You asked them questions, they gave you the answers. If you had asked other types of questions, like "will it sparkle?" they might have been reassuring in a different way. BTW put it on HOLD before some lurker snatches it! Inquiring about stone does n...

Re: Advice on B2CJewels - GIA 1.56K J VS1 Excellent Cut - H

It looks fine. B2C also has a very good return policy.

Ask them if the 1.50 stone has any reason to stop them from recommending it. Ask if the fluorescence causes any haziness.
