I used to live on St Thomas and take the ferry over to St. John all the time to get away from the touristy feel that St. Thomas had.  If I wasn't getting married in Hawaii, it would be my choice for a honeymoon. The island is beautiful and the Westin is a beautiful property. You will ...

I have been bitten by the Don Ed Hardy bug too! Haven't got the shoes yet, but got addicted to the tee-shirts last month and already have three. I never thought I would see myself in a skull tee, but here I am loving it. And especially love the tiger tee's and hoodies...reminds me of that comcast co...

Definietly the LV Damier Azur. I love this pattern and am getting the pouchette. But I personally don't like Burberry at all. To me, its like something my grandmother would wear/ carry. Sorry!  Plus LV has great resale value. I bought my Speedy Monogram Canvas 25 two and a half years ago f...

You are going to laugh...I've been on this forum for four monthes now and I just discovered the "shopping" section today! They may be evil, but do have the cutest summer-y dresses. BTW, I love the dress you posted. I ended up getting the Blue Angel dress: http://www.anthropologie.com/...

Well, I really love the Romona Keveza's. I ended up ordering on of her gowns last weekend. The fabrics are beautiful, the styles are classic. And as far as simple goes- well, I ended up going a lot simpler than I originally thought I would. But, I think these simpler styles will let your beauty show...

Normally, I don't mind a few inclusions, but this really does have a lot going on. In addition to all that going on, throw in the additional surface graining, which I can see some of the virtual loupe- and this would probably be a no-go for me. Even if it is eye-clean (which I am doubting), I have s...

Doesn''t always need to be polished out. The right jeweler should be able to fill it in. Much better than solution, IMO.

So I got a couple requests to start of thread on photomicrography, after some inquiries asking about my new avatar. Basically photomicrography is as it sounds-  magnified (10x to 40x) photos of gemstone inclusions, taken through the lens of a microscope. I recently starting ...
