    Yes Oliver can become reinfected. If he is clear, I would keep him isolated if not adopt him out entirely ideally to a household with no other pets. I would also worry that his presence would be too stressful for the other cats - they don't need another source of stress and cat introductions are...

    @distracts thank you for your continued wisdom and help. I appreciate it so much. What they meant is that since we are like dipping everyone it decreases the contagion. They just cannot say if it goes down to zero or if there is still enough active spores coming off them. That is the conundrum...

    Healthy Living Thread

    Marcy-your floors look beautiful! And I love the rugs too. Those are the colors I gravitate to. I find them very soothing. We’re trying to decide on whether we want carpet or hardwood in our bedroom. Carpet is better for a bedroom, but we have pets. The very day it is installed, one of the cats...

    Advice needed with my choice and road to buying

    Yes, you are right. I prefer the classic tapered setting as it's classic AND tapered, but the problem is the thickness. I actually called BN for this and they told me that the thinnest area is 2.9mm (!) which is way way too much. They are now checking what is possible. I also told them that I...

    Ideal-Scope and ASET Scope deserve a far larger audience

    This is my personal experience from perusing B&M stores. Many carry various lines, ranging from non-branded to branded, as well as cut quality ranging from good to excellent/ideal, non-certified to certified (basically, the whole gamut). Most stores I visited carried GIA graded stones. I think...

    Do you have an emergency bag?

    Nothing against the ones at Harbor Freight but.... oooo they so not good for long term usage. Best of the best for inverter generators are Honda. Very quiet, and those at least can be run in parallel. And they can fit in a small car. But they are for pretty small things. I have...

    My 2 carat CBI diamond, set in a custom setting made by Durham Rose Jewellers, UK.

    I want to start this post with gratitude, so much gratitude. I'm not even in possession of my ring yet, because I'm going to pick it up next Wednesday, but I've been sent a video from the workshop and I'm desperate to share it. I also have lots to say about my journey up until now, for anyone...

    Does low clarity badly affect trade-in and resale value?

    In my opinion, clarity is tied to diamond size. Getting a 2 carat E, SI2 is much different than getting a 0.5 carat E, SI2. Generally speaking, I prefer to see clarity (and color) get better in larger sizes as there is more surface area to view and compare but this isn't a hard & fast rule for...

    Unexpected medical adventure

    Man, I am just the constant harbinger of downer news for you. :( And I'm sorry to have to be that. But here is the reality. No matter where you are, the pool of doctors who know sh*t from shinola when it comes to MS, is thiiiiiiis big. The number of neurologists who specialize in MS is very...

    DK/BGD Custom Setting...The Home Stretch

    So just a quick overall update before I dive into specific comments: I've emailed DK and asked them what they specifically recommend for strength/durability to build the rings. I expressed some people believe platinum is a great choice; however, the tone of his last email left me thinking...

    Help choosing a virtual diamond!

    While you answer the other questions, here's how I would respond to your choices. Please don't be discouraged by my responses. I'm leaving some narrative so you can see why I said what I did. I also don't suggest EGL or IGI for the diamond novice. If you look at those, assume the clarity is 1-2...

    Article: Over Grading of Blue Fluorescent Diamonds Revisited

    Bryan, Bryan, Bryan. NONE of this is "established science". We have no reasonable way to prove you are right or wrong.

    Pre-designed vs slight custom setting (also, tanzanite!)

    This is the route I'm leaning on, but did not know about the warranty voiding if done by an unauthorized Vatche jeweller. Unfortunately, from everything I've read, there are NONE of those in Canada. This would mean I would have to ship back the ring to WF for resizing or any kind of minor fixes...

    2.48 E SI1, SBF - Please give me your opinion!

    I've been looking for a 8.5mm plus, "White" (H or higher), SI2-I1 stone for a while. My budget has creeped up and up, as I've found so many of the sub $20k stones were compromised by cut or -really- visible inclusions. I am sensitive to color but not that sensitive to some well placed...

    Where to Sell Diamonds?

    Hi, I have two medium price diamonds to sell so I can earn some money, actually large amount. My problem is that in the country where I am from, there are almost none legitimate companies willing to buy diamonds from individual persons. I still managed to find one, visited them personally and...
