Re: Which USA states have you been to?

Looking at your map of the US, I can see that most of our travel has been along the eastern seaboard. When it was too expensive to fly for our family of four, we did a road trip :bigsmile: (brave souls that we were). We chose two weeks in the summer (last week of July and the first week of August) f...

Re: Cat surgery -- to biopsy or not??

Re: USPS Registered Mail for ring shipment?

If sending a package from Canada, no carrier wants to cover jewellery. Period. The two big ones (FedEx and UPS) will insure up to $500. excluding jewellery and combustibles. Canada Post will give you a tracking number if it's insured for $200. or more. Still no jewellery, though. I have been forced ...

Re: Cat surgery -- to biopsy or not??

What a tough decision, PT! :(( . As a life-long lover of kitties, I can only tell you what I would do and why. I would spend the money on kitty's tests. If nothing was found, that's good news; however, if it's an aggressive cancer, I would vote to keep her comfortable for as long as you can and foll...

Re: Found this ring stuck in my grandmothers jewelry box.

If your jeweler charges to identify the stones (especially diamonds) go to another jeweler who doesn't. :dance:

The style of the ring looks very similar to the one my grandmother owned. It was the real deal!!!

Madam, Hermes certainly knows how to attract customers to their high end products. If you just want 'a little something' without breaking the bank', they offer beautiful gold pendants.

I have an E and love the blue/white nature of it, but when placed beside a G, there was a quite a difference. I suggested to the gemmologist that maybe the G just needed to be cleaned. He was 'eager to please', cleaned the stone, but there was no difference. :eek:
