    Buying engagement ring (stone)...need help!

    Earlier you mentioned you didn't want a "yellow" diamond. Because of everyone's unique visual acuity and sensitivities, what is yellow to one may not be yellow to another. I suggest you learn what yellow means to you, and even better, what your future wife will consider yellow so you get a...

    Tiffany Setting vs Super Ideal Help!

    If you aren't aware, color is graded by looking at the SIDE of the diamond. The more exposed the sides of the diamond, the greater the potential to see tint. As such, when looking face up on a diamond you may not see much tint variation. Lastly, if a diamond is poorly cut, light will not...

    Using ants to get what we want...

    I'm sure that by now she has had a chance to take some pictures and post results back on AntScope. Without doubt, @SledgAnt has voiced concern for AGS/GIA certification so angles can be reviewed to confirm cut quality, and inquired if any ASET, IS and H&A images are available to review along...

    Has anyone done/is anyone doing intermittent fasting?

    I want to post another review on The Obesity Code, by another doctor. And I'm doing this because sometimes, some of us need to hear things over and over before we really start to get it. (and some won't believe things if they don't come from a "professional") One thing that struck me about this...

    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...

    Has anyone done/is anyone doing intermittent fasting?

    mellow, thanks for elaborating. "You did not realise how many calories are in things!!!!" Truer words were never spoken! lol The dang things are everywhere..... and that leads me to my next comment. We are told, Calories in, calories out. Must burn more than you eat, etc. I would hear that and...

    Opinions on this sapphire?

    Glow: highly saturated stones will pop with the intensity of its body colour Sparkle: a well cut stone will flash and sparkle, where the facets light up/reflect A good stone should exhibit both. Some stones will exhibit one or the other only. Some have neither. Clarity: eye clean is the...

    Forevermark diamond missing grading report

    Forevermark, to my knowledge, are not sent to GIA or AGS for grading. DeBeers uses their own inhouse grading system from IIDGR which began grading for their parent company DeBeers in 2010ish. Its an inhouse system.. Back in 2011ish, the stones were graded by both IIDGR and GIA, but that may have...

    Why You Should Take All Your Females to See Wonder Woman

    Awesome review! I had been ignoring it as I am sick of movies where women are either weak, tag along with others for no real reason, or over-the-counter with boobs/butt hanging all over and her body being her main strength (as in, distract the bad guy with boobs). I think all the males should...

    I'm a widow

    I am never surprised by the generosity of heart and spirit ofnthis commubity, but I am always humbled and blown away by acts of kindness from "strangers" in the real world (my local Yokel world). The realtor I spoke to at the open house on Saturday stopped by my house as I was rushing out the...

    Diamond color when setting in Yellow Gold? Does it show?

    A higher set stone won't help it be whiter. Mainly, you won't see color from the top view (looking at the diamond's table, the flat part), but you may notice body color from the side view. So a ring setting where the stone is totally open on the side, you may notice more color. Obscuring that...

    Please share your incompetent doctor experiences

    Sandeek I am so sorry about your mother and for the surgeon's office not to contact your mom immediately with the results was inexcusable. Yes someone in that office (preferably the physician) should be reviewing the tests they order. Not to do so is negligence, carelessness or just plain not...

    Essential oils recommendations?

    You can use a lot but I use my young living thieves. I don't recommend spending the price on YL unless you decide to get a wholesale account, the mark up due to the pay out they pay their memebers is insane. An example: I paid 350$ when I got my kit + extras and I signed up under my gf and she...

    Fab Product for Underam Sweat

    Sorry for the gross topic, but I've found this product which is so effective I thought I'd share about it, because I've suffered in silence for years and didn't know there was a solution! I've always had a ton of underarm wetness even on temperate days with low activity, and it has really...

    Barring any nut allergies, I got a big bottle of sweet almond oil, cold pressed, hexane free, off amazon.com. It's the brand that has like 1,000 reviews and 5 stars? Majestic pure maybe? I am digging the results Moreso than any lotion I've tried. And when I was crazy inflamed with eczema and...

    No nut allergies so I will look into this, thanks! It's not greasy or anything? Since it's an oil? I don't worry so much at night before bed (I read a while back that you lose a lot of moisture from your skin at night..not sure if it's true or not, but I used to lotion again before bed...

    Not greasy at all when you apply straight to dry skin. When I apply after showering to damp skin, I need a few extra minutes to absorb. That's when I do things like floss and brush my teeth lolol.

    Good morning girls! Hope you all had a very nice weekend! I'm exhausted. Skiing for 8 hours on Saturday and 7.5 on Sunday. Non stop. Cross country. Deep snow. Lots of up-up-up the mountainsides. The weather was truly amazing, a bit cold in the mornings (-20C), but quickly warmed up to...

    ear piercing... advice please

    Honestly? I wouldn't trust Claires, etc. Usually they are just bored teens who just pick a spot and pierce. That's where I and a lot of people got their ears pierced and mine are in the wrong spot for my type of ears and have all sorts of quirks which limits they type of earring I can wear. I...

    ear piercing... advice please

    Absolutely every location is different - as is true for everything (restaurants, tattoo parlors, hair salons, etc.). That's why phone calls, internet reviews (like Yelp, etc.) can be so beneficial:) I hope that you find a place that's just right for you and that her piercing experience is a...

    ear piercing... advice please

    I don't believe that your statement about Claires is true. Claires has documented 85 million ear-piercings (and counting). Obviously, they have to follow FDA guidelines (trained staff, proper sterilization techniques, gloves, etc.) and piercings are not performed by bored teens with no...

    ear piercing... advice please

    I think each location is different. Managers and staff are different so they aren't going to be perfectly uniform. I'm still looking at a couple of these near us as possibilities (pending further research and an in person visit) since I think "A" would feel vastly more comfortable at one of them...

    ear piercing... advice please

    Cool suggestion! There are things in life that need more than a 5 minute internet search and she needs practice doing those. My one tattoo was done at the least scuzzy looking place I could remember driving past. No looking at reviews. Nothing. Just walked in (at 18 or 19) and picked one out...

    How do you feel about Castro's suicide?

    If it was murder the guards either did it themselves or were complicit. There have been cases where a prisoner was obviously murdered and no one could say how the killer got to him. I haven't read the coroner's report. I'm not sure there is one yet. It's not clear if there was an autopsy, or if...
