Hey Everyone!

By my rekoning, the contest will conclude soon!!

:david:  Could there perhaps be a matching set in this bunch for a nice set of yellow earrings? :N1Please2HL1:

 :hail: :notworthy: :woohoo: Mikla

Absolutely!
I found 2 pairs in this parcel, and two in the second parcel.

Since there was a contest on, I've put the parcels in the safe, and left them alone, till the contest is over....

Thanks for asking Mikla!

I really did "mothball" these for the last two weeks, but I do remember a few things...
I believe that were looking at one parcel to be Y-Z ranging to Fancy Light Yellow- and the other, one shade darker: Fancy Light-Fancy Yellow....

Who won?  I blew it, not taking into account the price they would sell for, but I'm sure the others did.

Inquiring minds want to know!

Diamonds are like people, put them under a microscope and you`ll always see a flaw but hold them up to the Sun and each and every one is beautiful.

I was wrong by MORE than half. I guess I am not very good at judging by a pic, I would probably have to have the stones right up there in front of me. Congrats, DL on the winning guess! ;)
