    Throw a snowball, get a fine

    A penny for your thoughts on this ... My thoughts: This is silly. 99.99999999362% of snowballs are thrown in good fun and result in injuries no worse than those delivered by a full belly laugh. Driving in a car is MUCH more more likely to result in injury or death. Shall we outlaw cars too...

    Odd fluorescence in a garnet?

    These are my very dirty earrings (kept in a box). Apologies for the dust. I like this style. My design. Four red garnets and two green tourmalines. After a year of ownership, I noticed strange fluorescence in a pyrope or almandine, whatever it is. Three are bought from one vendor, one from...

    Finally Found a Good Cut

    I've been looking for a month or so for a stone that is G, VS1, and has a good HCA score. This is the only one I've found but I don't see a video. Do I trust the HCA score of 1.4? Is $6662 a good price?

    Are you a real person??

    This freaked me out today. The phone rings, and a guy asks to speak to David. "That's me", I answer. "I'm calling from Google maps to find out your hours on Christmas day." So I ask the guy "where are you calling from?" ...I wanted to know which google office he was in. "I'm calling from Google...

    Can anyone recommend a custom cutter for a unique shape?

    I have my heart set on an elongated hexagon diamond, and finding the right stone has been a challenge. Thinking I will need to start looking into custom. Bigger sites like Whiteflash can't accommodate shapes like this. Any recommendations? Thank you!

    How’s this for a disco-ball!

    I was looking through photos online of rings I love and I spotted this fabulous ‘Disco ball’. It’s Platinum and Diamonds of different colours...big and bold.
