Alibabamen : I currently have a 1 carat diamond solitaire in a 4 prong white gold setting. I want to take that out and have it put into a different setting. The setting I want is a 4 prong solitaire with side diamonds (channel setting) I found what I want, but will have to replace the large diamond in the new setting with my current diamond. Not including purchasing the new ring, how much will it cost to trade out the diamond with mine?

Current ring:

New ring:

KWSteven : A diamond under a black light will glow with a blue tint.

MerSorpornart : The impact of a black light (also called ultraviolet light) depends on the particular diamond. Here are some examples:

After intense ultraviolet light exposure, the trace catalyst in a laboratory-grown ("man-made") diamond can show a short-lived phosphorescence; most natural diamonds will not show the phosphorescence.

Place the stone under ultraviolet light, and watch for blue fluorescence. Medium to strong blue indicates a real diamond. If there is no blue fluorescence, either the diamond is of excellent quality or it is a fake. However, I recommend verifying whether it's real or fake by other methods--just in case it's really an excellent diamond.

And phosphorescence after exposure to ultraviolet light is normal for blue diamonds, according to the Smithsonian team who studied the Hope Diamond and many other blue diamonds. They reported each diamond's phosphorescence was different, like a diamond's fingerprint. And when they tested natural blue diamonds against man-made blue diamonds, they noted a completely different phosphorescence spectrum, concluding it is very easy to tell man-made from natural blue diamonds.

zgjytkofcj : Diamonds can be fluorescent, so react to UV light like from a black-light source. Some have no reaction, some yellow, many are blue in various degrees of intensity. Other colors may be possible.

SageStigmamex : lasers can cut solid steel, and diamond, in seconds. with ease. so why arent they used for mining tasks? like cutting rock, or drilling blast holes?

StoomyTog : After my divorce my credit score dropped under 600. I need a 640 score to purchase a home. I read somewhere that if someone you know has a perfect score and puts me as a user for one of their credit cards that would increase my score. Can someone tell me if that is accurate

Gohismimb : The account holder's high credit score would have no direct impact on your own score but if their card had a low utilization, for instance, a $5,000 credit limit and only a $500 balance, this could improve your credit utilization numbers which would have a positive impact on your score. If the card is maxed out or close to it, it could hurt your score just as one of your own cards would.

Whether or not it would be 40 points worth of help is hard to say. I'm going to guess it might fall a little short.

Miztiessy : Used to be true.

It's called piggybacking. F.I.C.O. put a stop to this a few years ago.

It will still work but only for spouses and children.

Good luck.

frontru : A credit score is based on a 12 month activity and goes up 5 to 10% per month providing you are paying on time. If you have activity with a credit card, your score will be up to 640 in about 9/10 months.
