Widget has a brother!!!

Hi all!  It''s been a while,  hasn''t it?  About a year,  actually. I haven''t bought one bauble since I last posted here,  which makes me think my jewelry insanity is from PS enabling. Hmmm. I''ve spent a lot of my time obsessing about the presidential primar...

Obama''s Speech....

Hi,  all... I keep coming back to check if anyone has talked about the speech that Obama gave Tuesday.  It BLEW ME AWAY.  I honestly think it should be required reading and study in every high school in the country.  Whole courses of study could be built around it at the college ...

I certainly think this stone is worth seeing in person...as has been noted,  it might be AGES before you find another yellow step-cut stone to consider. I like that the GIA calls it "fancy",  and gives it VG for symmetry. Once you have it in your hand,  you can better judge how y...
