On Friday, the National Museum of Canada released its annual report on the world's diamonds, and it was an illuminating look at how diamonds are made and how the price of the precious metals has affected the world."We're seeing a surge in the supply of diamonds and that's creating a demand that's pushing prices up," said John Friesen, senior vice-president of the National Museums of Canada."But th...
A friend’s mom recently purchased an expensive necklace that’s just the right size for a grown woman.
“She wanted to make sure it was perfect for her,” the mom wrote in a post to Reddit.
“I said, ‘I don’t care how big it is, you don’t need to put any more thought into it than that.'”
The mom’s grandpa gave her his own gold necklace with a little help from his grandpa.
The necklace’s dimensions are the same as a normal necklace, but the mom had to find an extra 3 1/2 inches to fit the necklace’s original dimensions.
“My mom said it was so perfect, she wanted to wear it every day,” the dad wrote in another post.
“It’s a little bit too big for her, but she is happy that I took the time to make it so.”
The necklace costs $1,000, but it’s worth $14,000 in a few days.
The mom was inspired to buy her own jewelry after watching her grandma buy jewelry at the store.
“So I thought, why not get it right here?
And then I got it,” she wrote.
“Grandma had been spending a lot of money on jewelry over the years, and it was becoming more and more expensive.
And I thought to myself, if she had gotten it from the store, would she feel bad?
Because I’m pretty sure it’s not as expensive as some of the other things she had been getting.”
After some research, the mom found the perfect necklace for her.
The ring is a perfect size for the mom’s neck, and the necklace fits snugly on her neck.
The jewelry was handmade in her hometown of Austin, Texas, and is a gift from her grandmother.
“This is the perfect ring,” the grandma wrote on the post.
The mother also got a necklace that was handmade at home.
“You know, I thought it was kind of a neat ring,” she said.
“Because the rings you get from the jewelry store are just the same, and they’re so much bigger.”
