Re: Oye! I give up. Now we need protection from sunscreen.

This is really old news.

I use as little sunscreen as possible. Generally, I use it only when and where I think I might burn. In the summer months I just use a dab when I remember on sun-sensitive areas of my face.

Re: Do you believe there is a right and left sock?

I have left and right socks, but only because my feet are not evenly sized. I use a thicker sock to even out the smaller foot.

The numbers are borderline. Once you find a stone with acceptable HCA (like this one) you need to ask the vendor for pictures and an Ideal Scope image.

You can use HCA as a quick and dirty proportion checker: http://www.pricescope.com/tools/hca

Re: What color diamond center with blue sapphire side stones

You can generally go lower in color with colored sidestones than, say, with white diamond pave.

Some people really like faint tints (L or lower) with blue sapphire.

Re: Cushion cut comparison

They're both decent picks, depends on if you want a square or rectangular cushion. The rectangular one has much more spread.

Re: Do men hit on you?

Yes, and it is because of how I look. If i wear a cute sundress and have on approachable makeup, I may get attention. No cute outfit and no cute face means no attention.

I have experienced a long bereavement. My exbf is still alive, but I cannot be in a relationship with him; rather, I've lost him to illness. We broke up eight years ago.

If you post your budget, we'll try to help you find something nice. Blue Nile won't work for this, you need pictures which Blue Nile is more miss than hit. Square or rectangle?

Re: Question About Pears

Diamond performance drops off signficanty once it gets dirty. A leaky shape like pears will be even worse. But if you're fanatical about keeping it clean and you want a pear, that shouldn't stop you.

Re: Modified Cushion Cut

Without some pictures it is hard to say anything.

But without anymore information, 8000 is not some kind of strange price for what you are looking at.

Re: Looking for. RB 1.8-2 Carat loose diamond..with 18k bu

yes, that looks like a great choice. Ask customer service to put it on hold and for an Ideal Scope. Choose two more, you get 3 Ideal scope requests.
