You are in a good location...keep me in mind.

Darn timing. I'm sure you'll find another. When you do, keep me in mind.

BWAHAHAHA!

I dare not show this to my wife. She's always teasing how I coo over my treasures. If I tell her I've been fondling the rings and jewels, I think she'd bust a gut.

LOL

Thanks for the laugh.

I don't worry when the price of gold and/or silver drops because that means I can buy more at lower prices. The old saying still holds water......Buy LOW, sell HIGH

Well, I almost had you with a 14k white. Dug this yesterday at the local soccer field, but my cheap print sizer says it is an 11.5. I'll get it double checked to be sure today, but I double checked it against another calibrated online ring size test and it showed 11.5 there also.

Might be worth it to get it and get it sized up half a size

Premiums are pretty high right now and inventory very low. Too bad we can't dig up Rhodium. That metal has quietly skyrocketed this year.

Rising rates + rising stock prices = bad for metals. (not that it matters b/c if it was good for metals, they'd just manipulate the markets lower anyway)
