Re: At Home Ring Steamer - Suggestions please!

Kenny do you think the steamer works better than the soap type cleaners? I would never used soap to clean a diamond. For daily cleaning of my tension-set diamond I use Isopropyl Alcohol and a tooth brush. Then I blow away the contaminate alcohol with canned air. Repeat 2 or 3 times. For weekly clea...

Re: At Home Ring Steamer - Suggestions please!

I'm very happy with my GemOro Steamer.

ONLY use distilled water or reverse osmosis water.
Regular water has minerals that may build up and eventually clog the aperture.

Re: PSA:Surgeon General-skin cancer major public health prob

Getting society to drop the idea that a tan looks healthy or attractive is an uphill battle. I know what would work, but they can't do ... legislate that nobody with a tan can appear in films, TV or advertising. Next outlaw people wearing make up that makes their skin look darker.

PSA: Now we must be more careful with our keys

KeyMe is a new service that will 3D 'print' and give you a replacement key from a photograph of a key. :nono: Now criminals don't have to even touch your keys to get copies.

Re: Do you prefer GIA or AGS ?...

I have more respect for AGS. Shockingly, GIA includes weight-retaining steep deeps in their Excellent cut grade. This makes the industry more profitable while the consumer is deceived into thinking all diamonds that GIA graded Excellent-Cut are the the best cut. :nono: AGS's top cut grade is tighter...

Re: Should I teach my nieces about dental floss?

Once again :roll: generalizations are generally true. Exceptions to generalizations do not make the generalization untrue. Flossing is a good thing for anyone with natural teeth. It removes plaque that would build up under the gums where brushes can't reach. Over decades the plaque converts to yucki...

Science: Rich & Poor People May Have Shared Common Ancestor

I can't imagine another product where goods are sold/traded only by and to a tightly-restricted group of insiders.

Re: Should I teach my nieces about dental floss?

Also please factor in VERY VERY low income.

Us diamond-buying folks get used to being able to afford all that stuff we see as necessities.
Sunblock is very very expensive, especially compared to floss.
