    • Watched a documentary on De Beers ....basically De Beers marketing in the U.S. turn of the century..." A diamond is forever" De Beers slogan....it caught on. 
    • I'm not sure how the diamond wedding ring got its start in Western culture.  For my folks, it's customarily a plain gold band, and the women manage to obtain their stones later in the marriage, one way or another. Diamonds as an investment are best purchased used.  Bought at retail, you take a loss walking out of the showroom, and it can take many decades to recover that initial loss, much less to see any gain.  Bought used at the right price, it's possible to realize a decent profit overnight.  Pawnbrokers know this.  I'd not be likely to advise someone to invest in used diamonds, though -- it's the sort of thing that almost requires instinct.
    • Now I'm not giving investment advise here but, the value of a large diamond is so grey that its really a matter of what some one is willing to pay. Let me give you another example. my wife's wedding ring is not worth as much today as it was when I purchased it. When I purchased it gold was $325.00 dollars an Oz. I could not take it into a store today and sell it for what I payed for it. even though the thin gold band has appreciated more than the diamond. I could have purchased seven ounces of gold at that time for what I paid for her ring. I don't think if I walked into any given coin/jewelry store today I could get more than a $1500.00 for it.
      Hope she is not reading this.

    • Any Synthetic clothing is not such a good Idea.   LOL   I was with a guy shooting some BP pistols way back when.  He walked by me and the Back of his cotton shirt was Spooging Smoke and had burned about a 4 inch hole in it.  He had no Idea he was on fire. 
    • LOL, don't think they would be so practical.  Pretty much only scans the surface.  Sure would be interesting playing around looking at some tailing or even the walls of a old mine.
