"When she's ready for that very special diamond..."

When she's ready to hock her identity, independence and sexuality in exchange for a half-a-year's-salary gaudy hunk of compressed carbon (to benefit rich jewelers and the warlords of an impoverished African dictatorship), which you hope will be returned to you a year later when you divorce so you can sell it for half its original price, the ubiquitous diamond dealership of your choice will be waiting.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Hi Nice Blog .That hasn't stopped me from paging through Goldsmith Jewelry's new website. There have some beautiful pieces and, although I am not going to spend $1500 on a set of earrings, I am sure going to enter to win them for free in Jewelers Point
