OK, that got a chuckle out of me.

The gf is very smart. She definitely made it tangible for your friend, especially if he is a smoker.... :tongue:

Call me ignorant (I don't smoke) but what part of the cigarette is the "bud"?

If she means the diameter of the tip, that looks around a nice 1 ct. Reasonable enough no?

I think they actually mean BUTT, which is what is left after you smoke it. If I'm wrong, then I have no idea what bud means...unless you guys are not talking about tobacco :Up_to_something:

The size and shape of a cigarette butt? I'm thinking something like Reese WItherspoons 4 carat Ashoka (sp?) cut.

A cigarette is around the same diameter as a pencil, right? (non-smoker here!)

If so, then we are talking around 7.5mm (average of the 4 pencils I have on my desk).

HAHAHA, I would love to see your friend reach into an ashtray stand outside of a jewelry store before he walks in and show one to a salesperson and ask to see a stone comparable in size!!!
