Re: Would you tell the truth if someone show you a fake..

I had a very good friend who showed me a ring and said it was a pink tourmaline and that her husband had bought it at a jewelry store in her town. It was very obviously pink ice cz, not tourmaline and maybe silver, if that. I didn't say anything about it, but was really surprised that she would try...

Re: Would you tell someone they have a personal hygiene issu

I am guessing the bad breath comes from rotten teeth or gums which are infected. I think this is usually true and due to periodontal disease, which I believe the vast majority of Americans have since daily flossing is far from universal. I know one person who had horrid projectile-bad-breath. It wo...

Great memory, Wink. Pardon my French, but I say, The Hell with that bitch! She's got problems. You don't.

Re: Would you tell someone they have a personal hygiene issu

But how would you feel if someone left you an anonymous note saying they didn't care for your perfume, or some other personal hygiene issue? If it were me, I would be very hurt and I would be wondering who did it, which would lead me to become a little paranoid. If there was no just cause the note ...

Re: Would you tell the truth if someone show you a fake..

FWIW, my MIL recently handed me a little box of her jewelry to examine. She knows I have more knowledge than the average joe. I cleaned and louped it all and separated it into two piles, fake and real. I added the caveat that the real stuff is only possibly -real because of my limited expertise. She...

Re: Would you tell someone they have a personal hygiene issu

That's a tough one.

I'd also just inform HR since it is their job to make the workplace acceptable.

Another idea is to anonymously leave a bar of soap, tooth paste and floss, earwax remover, deodorant, shampoo for him/her to discover on his/her chair.

Re: 2011 GSA "Evaluation" vs 2014 GIA Appraisal

Hi Kenny, This guy as a GG appraiser (see attachment). And while it may not mean a lot, I don't know, my insurance company Nationwide, recommended him. I guess I'm confused though.

Re: 2011 GSA "Evaluation" vs 2014 GIA Appraisal

There is no such thing as a "GIA Appraisal". GIA produces grading reports when you send them a diamond. The report never says anything about a price. GIA also trains people. A person with GIA's highest 'degree' is called a GG or Graduate Gemologist. A GG from GIA can work for a store and w...

Re: Why I love my luxury hairdryer

Interesting.. I know the company has to refit their items for different markets. I know 1800 watts is max for 15 amps at 120 V in the United States.

Re: Why I love my luxury hairdryer

Something's wrong. It states "2100 watts". That's impossibly high for home use. The proof is the formula that describes the relationship between volts, amps and watts: Power in watts divided by voltage in volts = current in amps. I google parlux 3800 and found more specs: screen_shot_2014-...

Re: losing faith - need an honest diamond dealer/jeweler in

IMO there's no benefit from insisting on a local jeweler. Actually, doing so puts you at a tremendous disadvantage. Compare the odds of finding a good jeweler local, to finding one worldwide. UPS, FedEx, USPS, and MalcaAmit have made the entire world local. I second the recommendation for Jonathan a...

Re: Trade in gold ring with diamond?

You need money fast. Unfortunately that, and not being sure what you have, the worst way to sell. One diamond can be worth 10 even 20 times what another is worth, even when both appear similar to you or I. Pros will know what you have so you could easily be ripped off … particularly since you said i...

Re: Is your Platinum engagement ring heavy?

No. I just weighed my platinum Gelin Abaci tension setting with a round 0.82 ct. It weighs 16 grams and is size 8. You just get used to it. 16 grams is only 0.035 pounds. That's a third of a tenth of a pound. That's nothing. Your clothing and shoes weighs a few pounds, and I hear no complaints. scre...

I wouldn't have noticed them unless you pointed it out. Even then I'd definitely say they are not gigantic.
