Re: Vendors with trade up policies?

If the diamond is good enough (report from GIA or AGS and 4Cs that are in-demand) and you are willing to accept a low-enough price I think any diamond seller would accept it.

Diamondseeker 2006 I want to apologize. I reread this thread and I made assumptions. Technically you're right when you say you didn't say what I accused you of saying. I'm sorry. Thank you, Kenny.

So in effect, you are saying that no ones beliefs are valid but your own. It's not about my beliefs are valid and yours aren't. It's about doing harm. Beliefs that results in voting to deny rights to others does harm so such beliefs are wrong and must/will eventually be dropped. I'm not stupid, thi...

Re: Quick poll

I don't like halos.
I especially don't like when they have air gaps and a two square thing interrupting the halo, as with this cushion setting.
They remind me of eyeballs with Sarah Palin eyeglasses.

If it's gotta be a halo I prefer the round setting, by far.

Re: Crystal Table Lamps - help me decide!

I'd cross this one off the list.
Others have a wider base.
This one's base is not wide and it looks a bit top-heavy.

Though I find it very attractive I think this lamp would be easiest of the bunch to knock over.
