TANZANITE

There isn't that better than daggy old rubies. It would mean I'd have to have a new velvet dress with a low cleavage.

A lovely deep violet colour. A dark violet though, nothing light coloured, not in velvet. With all my comfy curves I could be mistaken for a sofa and sat on.

I don't even need real diamonds. Man-made diamonds are catching up in quality to the real thing. Not cubic zirconias but real diamonds made in a laboratory and only a microscope knows for sure. I'd rather have the bit of heaven pictured above.

Diamonds are over-rated. I like pretty stones. That one looks fantastic, around your neck or anyone's.

Of course man-made bling is preferable to benefitting from the de Beers slavery and cartel which is behind those other 'gems'.

That one in your photo looks like bling-blingedy-bling to me too.

Dearest sweetie Andrew, I have a birthday coming up. Feel free to toss pretty things my way.

bwca, trouble is they're only found in Tanzania and subject to the same worker slavery as all the other mines in the world. Damn ethics.

The difference between natural and synthetic is Provenance. Because when you've got something you have to discuss it. Okay?

Watch 'The Collectors', 8pm Fridays, on the ABC.

The difference between wealth and poverty is waste, the poor can't afford it.

Shirley Camera Red Dress (to the right or the left - who cares!) will be far too busy tossing pretty things without giving you a second thought (or passing on even his second bests to you) Birthday Gal.

(You didn't think you could leave a comment like that - as wide as the Sydney Heads - and get away with it without me leaping unwelcome-like into the breach!?!)

A spot on r.h. very Oscar Wildeish - and as ever with Oscar - spot on/

What I meant to say before the Gin and Tonic took over was ...

Thanks Your Lordship. I'm Oscar re-incarnated, as a woman-chaser.

And golly, do they run!

Such a philosopher you are, Rh. You are right, us poor can't afford waste. I've tried to instil this in the cat with no success and have resorted to throwing his leftover food mixed with seed out to the birds. The little cannibals seem to enjoy it.

Thank you Lord Tosser, you might encourage Andrew to be a little less selfish.
