    • I just learned what a pingback is. It means my website has been mentioned in a comment. I was advised to let it show in my comments. So here it is. Silly me I always thought these things were spam and erased them.
      I wrote a guest post for them and so here is my pingback!

  2.

    • Dear Jayson,
      I’m a bit mystified by all that you are seeing in your diamond. Some diamonds have inscriptions on the girdle or widest place. I’d take it to a jeweler with a diamond tester.
      Your Personal Jeweler,
