Diamonds may be a woman's best friend, but modern man made diamonds are so
good as to be indistinguishable from real diamonds. And when you look at the
huge savings on price, man made diamonds may be a woman's best
decision.Increasingly, engaged couples are considering the cost of some wedding
jewelry. In today's high pressure high cost lifestyle couples are really
wondering whether or not it is appropriate to spend big on, say, a diamond
engagement ring.The more spent on wedding jewelry the less available later for
the important things in the marriage, like a house. Or the kids when they
arrive. Is it responsible to spend so much to buy a diamond engagement ring when
these more important things may need to be compromised later?Especially when you
consider that good quality man made diamonds cannot be distinguished from real
diamonds, even by jewellers.Faux diamonds are big business. The pearl jewelry
industry was revolutionised by the advent of cultured pearls.
are doing the same thing to the wedding jewelry business.There are a range of
ways to produce synthetic diamonds. Modern technology is very adept at making
any product which will sell well and faux diamonds are no exception. And the
quality is so good that many of the alternatives to diamonds perform exceedingly
well when compared to diamond using the common diamond quality tests.In such
tests as hardness, refractive index, fire, brilliance, luster and others the man
made diamonds perform admirably. Sometimes even better.Brilliance is a test of
the amount of light which enters the stone and gets reflected back. It is
affected by the quality of the cut of the stone.Fire is the ability of the stone
to break light down into it's component colors and is also affected by the cut.
"Fire" can be seen as color coming out of the stone.
Luster is the amount of
light reflected back from the surface of the stone.Moissanite, for example,
outperforms diamond in brilliance, fire and luster and is only very slightly
lower on the hardness scale. In fact a special piece of testing equipment had to
be designed so that jewellers could tell moissanite from diamond as so many were
unable to.And, of course, moissanite is much cheaper than diamonds. And if most
jewellers cannot tell it apart from diamonds, could you?There are a range of
different processes used to produce a stone which is a good diamond alternative.
Most produce fine quality stones which produce stunning quality jewelry which
any woman would be proud to wear.Moissanite is not strictly a man made diamond

Think hard about it!"All owned the affairs of men hang by slender thread." Ovid"El Ponto"One can relate this metaphor with simple events, changes,and incidents and just about anything that can make theslightest change in our lives to greatness or despair.Thinking of the slender thread can remind one of themetaphor, "The Sword of Domacles" when his King, in orderto remind Domacles how precarious his position in life wasat the Palace. At a banquet in honor of Domacles, the Kingplaced a sword directly over Domacles head, hanging by afew horsehairs. The implication, "Just a reminder of who isreally the boss!" Couldn't anyone of our simple deeds ofkindness be that simple strand of hair leading to the turningpoint in our lives?Originality"They sun themselves in the great man's light, and feel it tobe their own element."Ralph Waldo Emerson, speech "The American scholar,"Harvard college, Aug. 31, 1837. (They as the masses andthe herd)Isn't it interesting how Emerson conveys the thought that mostpeople in this world will bask in the accomplishments of allthose marvelous creative and innovative risk takers? It's awonderful experience instead of "following the leader, tobeing the leader." A good feeling is when you are thecontributing mentor and "the masses and the herd" bask inyour contributing greatness to their dignity and welfare?What's wrong with you being their best coach?"And this I swear by blackest brook of hell,/I am no pick-purseof another's wit."Sir Philip Sydney, "Sonnet 74"Astrophel & Stella.It appears somebody accused him of pilfering an idea asmany other writers, artists, coaches and just about everybodyelse has borrowed from somebody else.When Dad belonged to the National Speakers Association,he conveyed to us a common statement.

Whatmakes up the different colonies within your life that stimulatesthe different worlds of your imagination. It could be family,associations, work, hobby or just about anything that isempowering and having that phenomenal, enrapturing andenergizing effect in your life?What does this overused metaphor still mean to you?"Variety's the spice of life, that gives it all its flavor." WilliamCowper, "The Timepiece"What type of variety do you have continuously adding towonderment and resourcefulness?Flexibility"The rulers (in Japan) our politicians and large businesses.The ruled our everyone else, the "Grass people," so apathytermed because they bow in whatever direction the windblows."Reiki HatsumiAre you one of the "Grass people?"
