Sweetie you shouldn't have!

Did anyone see this on the news? This is a 84.37 carat white diamond that was sold yesterday for a little over 16 million dollars, making it the second most expensive such stone ever sold. How do you wear a 84.37 carat diamond? LOL Just thought this was interesting and would brighten your day.

WOW! Can you imagine spending that kind of money on a diamond? It is beautiful, though, isn't it? Take care.

That reminds me of a joke. Betty's husband had just died and a friend was commenting to her on the nice funeral. "Yes" said Betty. "It was pretty nice for a $5000 funeral"

"$5,000!" Exlaimed her friend.

"Well, there was $100 for the minister's expenses, $800 for the coffin, $200 for the food and $3900 for the memorial stone"

"$3900 for the memorial stone! How big is it?"

"24 carats"

Yep, it's quite obscene really. The money I mean, NEVER the diamond. Lordy, how it must sparkle. Love karolee's joke.

With a VERY stong chain and a VERY strong padlock, I guess. I of course would opt for a safety deposit box.

Love,

Oh yeah, I saw that. How do you wear a 84.37 carat diamond, you ask? With a sling to hold your arm up and a body guard, of course!
