I'm hoping to get a few pointers on places to visit that would carry a bigger selection than pawn shoppes of old cuts. I know Lang's is in SF, but I can't get to SF anytime soon and want to go browsing with the SO.

We're going to Beverly Hills area in about a week or two, and wanted to take advantage of our travel there. There's a lot of old money there, so I'm wondering if there are any consigners or dealers in that area that could have taken in some pretties from old, retired folks?

Diamonds are held under tons and tons of pressure, extremely high temperatures of fire and shuffled under shifting of tectonic plates, for a long, long time! Yet when they come out from there and are put on display for their beauty; does anybody stop to evaluate the diamond based upon all the shit it's been through and say "Remember that disgusting hole it used to be in? I bet it was hell in there!" No, people don't remember where a diamond has come from; they just see the beauty of it now. But it wouldn't have become so beautiful, you know, if not for all of that! So why should we look at other people, or at ourselves and evaluate them/ourselves based upon their/our pasts? Shouldn't we forget that? And only see the beauty that is in front of our eyes? Whatever it was, it made you beautiful! And that is what matters! - C. Joybell C.
