    Don't send your daughters to The Rape School, UVA

    I can understand how a rape victim is in shock. But wth was wrong with the rest of them, that her friends didn't take appropriate action? Even at that age, I would have called the police and taken her to a hospital. You don't hide, you get medical attention. That's what shocked me. Rape...

    Don't send your daughters to The Rape School, UVA

    Just finished reading that article. I truly cannot believe that woman's friends thought it was best to keep it quiet because it would ruin her 4 years there! WHO THE HELL CARES? It's just a school, find another one, the USA is full of them. Rape is a violent crime. And the victim can get...

    Don't send your daughters to The Rape School, UVA

    +1 to that! Compared to when I was a teen and a college student, today's world is SO oppressive and anti-woman. We've had decades of MTV pumping the ghetto culture into young people. We have all the pro-lifers trying to force every women who becomes pregnant to birth a baby. We have...

    Diamond goes dark in artificial light!

    HCA is a rejection tool. It's not the last word. CA / PA angle combos can affect character and performance, and so does the minor faceting. GIA Excellent grade is very broad compared to AGS 000 and it allows some that are not great performers. Perhaps just look at AGS 000 stones, if you...

    What happen to all the professional jewelers on PriceScope?

    Re: What happen to all the professional jewelers on PriceSco Perhaps, but there's nothing wrong with that. Many people are just looking to buy one diamond, one time, for an engagement ring or an anniversary upgrade or just for fun, and they don't want to become experts because they most...

    nevermind

    Who knows, maybe they did manage to take it down. I've been trying to contact the owner of a webcams I recognized, checking whether their webcam was still unintentionally open to the world, and now even my bookmarks don't show anything but a dead site or a redirect.

    What settings are considered low rise? Halo?

    There are low profile halos that are more integrated into the shanks. This isn't the best example or craftsmanship, but the halo has an "undercarriage" that sits down on the finger, and the shanks attach to the sides of it. There are other ways to do this, and the style can vary from...

    Would ideal cut rounds reflect color?

    .2 is probably the HCA score. See Tools tab at top of page, then HCA (Holloway Cut Adviser.)

    E-ring help, finding a diamond!

    The $4700 cap is going to limit you to .8ct to maybe .95ct. Use PS's diamond search under Resources tab and look at in-house, GIA 3x, AGS 000, and your $4700 budget. The budget is too low to get 1ct. https://www.pricescope.com/diamond-search-results

    What happen to all the professional jewelers on PriceScope?

    Re: What happen to all the professional jewelers on PriceSco It's a number of causes converging. Some of the vendors are no doubt very busy running their own well-established Internet businesses now, selling to clients worldwide. Back in the early to mid 2000s, many of those vendors were...

    HELP! Do I need a convection oven in a gas stove?

    I don't know what kind of range and hood you have now. But a gas oven will put out a lot of heat and fumes, and you will need a more powerful hood vented to the outdoors, especially if you have a small kitchen. If you have an electric oven but gas burners, you might get away with a lesser...

    The "Divorce Celebration" business is red hot

    Where I live, divorces can take 2-5 years to complete, because the couple can't agree on property settlement, or child custody, or the wife doesn't work and she collects alimony for the maximum time awarded, or whatever. I can imagine that if one or both of the couple has been dating and has...

    A 8" Android tablet. I am still not ready to cough up monthly fees for either a smartphone or an iPad. But I got a 8" NS-15AT08 quad core Android KitKat tablet from Best Buy and a $10 iHome Bluetooth keyboard from Ollie's discount store, and a $10 bag from Big Lots. It's smaller to lug...

    Re: Just proposed. I think I screwed up with my ring choice Sorry that happened. But sounds like she's just not that into you as much as she is into the idea of marriage. It's better to find out such things before marriage rather than after. I know people who planned and went through with...

    Just proposed. I think I screwed up with my ring choice...

    Re: Just proposed. I think I screwed up with my ring choice Here is my take on this: There may be more to the story. In your first post you said she'd been "pushing" you to propose. If you've been dating a long while, or if she is in a hurry to get married, maybe she just felt that the...

    Just proposed. I think I screwed up with my ring choice...

    Re: Just proposed. I think I screwed up with my ring choice The average e-ring for first marriages is probably in the 75ct - .8ct range nowadays. The stone you bought should pass for 1ct easily. I don't see what her beef if it's size, unless she expected a 2ct. The halo would make it...

    Reconsidering a future purchase

    Time and life change one's priorities. I think you can only do the consumer thing for so long before it becomes SSDD, or you find yourself bored because you've bought better stuff for less money in the past. Or, you finally have so much "good enough" stuff that you no longer feel compelled to...

    Size 5 finger. ?

    i was going to suggest bezel the center stone in a halo, but Niel beat me to it. A bezel setting alone, no halo, is also a great look, makes the diamond look larger, and is sasy to wear. Illusion setting in another great vintage look from the '40s and '50s. Durable, protects the stone well...

    Buying a diamond for engagement ring. Color questions

    L an M are pale yellow. There is no doubt about it. Personally, I like L and M a lot more than I like J and K. L and M in a modern RB can face up deceptively white at times, and in certain lighting. But at other times, they will look pale yellow. My best guess is that there will be...

    Ebola: Do you support mandatory quarantine?

    Why Ideal Scope has SILVER and WHITE arrows!? Why not black!

    Re: Why Ideal Scope has SILVER and WHITE arrows!? Why not bl Does the depth affect it? I don't know, I'm just asking. The diamond is closer to a 60/60, and a well cut 60/60 is said to be brighter and the arrows not as "bold" as some of the deeper diamonds with smaller tables.

    Have the drop in Gold price reduced setting prices?

    It's been said that Internet sales have been holding profit margins down on the diamonds themselves, and jewelers are making up for that on prices of the settings. True or not, I don't know. But I could buy settings for a lot less money back in 2004-2006, for certain.

    Help! 1 month to choose an eng ring!

    If you are looking at I color, I'd suggest getting white gold instead of platinum. I color has warmth that you don't need to scrutinize to see, at least from the side view. (Face-up of even an L or M can be very white-ish in a modern H&A superideal RB.) Platinum is a very white metal...
