No one has mentioned that one about the chick named Debbie, and her trip to...I think it was Dallas. It's been a while.

Don't look into it unless you really mean that, K! Because conflict-free diamonds (socially responsible diamonds, ethical diamonds, whatever) are priced considerably higher than what you find in the normal market, and you have to search for it. Meaning, nearly all the diamonds you see are not conflict-free. Unfortunately. And neither is mine. Maybe one day.

I guess the pricing thing isn't too surprising, unfortunately. How did you find the origins of yours?
I don't know where it's from, I just know my husband really wanted to get a diamond that was conflict free, so he specifically sought it out and since we're both in grad school it wasn't possible. Sadly, it's just an assumption I have to make. My understanding of it is that you'd have to seek it out to be sure it was absolutely okay. Other than that I don't know much about it!

Right now I'm watching "Apollo 13". This is how movies should be made.

[threadjack] k, this is the company that my friend's engagement bling came from...http://www.canadia.com/latest/index.htm...and this is a pic of the famed maple leaf that is engraved into her stone, along with its identifying number....
I'm not much for diamonds myself (give me a pretty blue sapphire anyday!), but from what i've been reading, i think from now on, if i do acquire another one, it will come from canada...[/tj]
on a related movie note...the Last King of Scotland comes out this week- it's in my Blockbuster queue, looking forward to seeing it. I've heard Forest Whitaker gives an amazing performance...and then The Queen comes out next week.
To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago.
