    Thanks, Jersey and Marianne! I like that look better too Too bad it's going to be a while before I can sport it around; I'll be tromping around marshes looking for alligators this week!

    Camelot - pretty close. Diamond is 5mm. That is obviously a very old post. These days I just follow auctions to get a feel for the market value.
    At 5mm a omc will prbably be more than .5ct depending on the depth but its generally more cushion cut & deeper on the crown so that carries more weight than a typical RBC. Love the old diamonds...Yeah just catching up on old threads...They are all great...

    I'd keep that ring though..

    Nature is nice but flies, mosquitos, ticks, leaches, pirhana, fleas, snakes, crocs, & so many other things love to mess with its enjoyment.

    Stay safe & enjoy!

    Oh yikes! I thought you playing in bear land was bad enough. Be safe. Gators are mean buggers!

    I like the pendant on the separate chain tbh. I think that gorgeous little necklace is perfect as it is ! The two together look great !

    Alligators....geeeez.... between you and Dave my paranoia runs rampant.

    Do you have the eastern brown snake in your area? Its one of the most venomous snakes in the world! Some say 2nd most venomous!

    http://snake-facts.weebly.com/eastern-brown.html

    Funny Story well maybe after the fact...

    My parents have them on the farm...Nasty agressive snakes with about a half hour or so to get antivenom & my parents are about 1/2 hr from the hospital///

    Scary....my Mom once caught one near the house. She was about 70 then but threw a piece of wood over its head & stood on it while calling my father who I think took its head with an ax....I don't know what I would have done but it was just the split instant decision & she said she would never go outside knowing it could be crawling under the house...(they are sort of like queenland houses off foundation but this is in north NSW...

    Can't imagine the terror I would have been in to see that... Shhhh looks like it is a crime to kill one but if it was under your house you might think otherwise.

    Fear perpetuates all sorts of "bad snake" stories. Will you be hurt if bit by a venomous snake? Yes. Is that reason to fear being outside, etc. or rampantly killing every snake you see (even just the venomous ones)? HELL NO. In all my time working outdoors, I have never been bitten, attacked, or otherwise by wildlife. That's not saying it can't or won't happen, but an ounce of prevention (i.e. being aware, mainly) is worth a whole lot more than a ton of cure.

    I was always taught to respect nature and it will respect you back.
