The value of such an item is symbolic and sentimental - why would either of you bring up the monetary value of it in a conversation? The monetary value of items, which happen to have special meaning to their owners, is probably the most irrelevant aspect of it that I can think of.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.

Nope. And have a look at Moissanite. Better color, clarity and far greater brilliance. Whatever you buy, have it appraised, scheduled for insurance and keep the appraisal in your safe.

I loathe DeBeers and their artificial bullshit scarcity of diamonds attack on the public.

Travis, you have any Jewish people down there? They teach us about how to handle our private affairs in sixth grade :lol:

Amongst other pretty oohhh- ahhhh minor gems in the safe the Warden has her Moissanite. I like them better than diamonds. It seems that the only segment that does not are the diamond sellers. My golf buddy owns a bauble store and he has dissertaioned for hours against silicon carbide.

Amazingly good campaign by DeBeers. They hit that special nerve in the female psyche and the result has thus self perpetuated.

Indeed. If DeBeers were to release all the diamonds they have stashed in their vaults, diamonds would be as cheap as chips.
