In late May, 2013, Christie’s Hong Kong is holding one of the most exclusive diamond auctions in the world. The estimated value of all 290 pieces is said to be somewhere around $74 million. Why is the value so high? These are some of the largest and most exquisitely cut diamonds the world has ever known. The most expensive item at the sale, a 75.36-carat IIa briolette diamond necklace, is estimated to be worth more than $10 million. This piece isn’t affordable for anyone but the richest tycoons on Earth, but that doesn’t mean diamonds aren’t an affordable way to express love and devotion for ordinary people.

Diamond RingDiamonds from www.shaneco.com come in a wide variety of weights and styles to fit the needs of any couple. Shane Co. makes the diamond shopping experience easier than ever. Customers are always gushing about how easy and pleasurable it is to shop for the ring that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. They conveniently offer live phone support, email and live online chat support to customers who have any questions about financing options or how the online store works. They offer a 6-month loan with no interest so that couples can get the ring they deserve without depleting a large chunk of savings. Diamonds have been the symbol of everlasting love and commitment for centuries, and Shane Co. knows what it takes to make that symbol accessible to those that want it.

I’m sure you have been to at least one wedding ceremony in your life. Whether it’s a relative, a friend or even your own, it must be filled with lots of traditional things that I am sure you are even aware where it originates from.

I mean why do western brides wear white? What the does ring signify? Why must there be that “something new, something old, something borrowed and something blue” thingy? Why is it the bride must be carried across the threshold? For the Chinese wedding ceremony, why is red the color of choice? What is the tea ceremony and why must they do it?  Well if you look a the infographics below, there might be some information below that can shed some light and give you answers to the questions. In fact, you will also find out why traditional Japanese brides are painted pure white for the ceremony and why during the San-san-kudo, 3 sips of sake are taken from three different sake cups. Wanna know why Russian bride and groom are greeted with bread and salt during the ceremony? You can find the answer below as well.

Wedding traditions always fascinate me and as long as they don’t burden the newly married couple with unnecessary debt and problems as they go on the experience the marriage itself, then it’s fine with me 🙂

We all know that presentation is part of a great meal. That is why if you lack creativity like me in the food decor department, the best thing to get is great looking dinnerware and a great looking table setup and your problem is somewhat solved unless of course your cooking is less to desired. If that is the case, may I suggest takeout? lol!

Anyway, if your cooking is mediocre, then perhaps these great looking summer dinnerware might just be consolation perhaps?

I just finished printing two sets of business cards for myself. One is for business contacts with my real name and one for people I meet while on blogging social events. You might wonder why two different sets? Well I go by by nickname when I blog and so if I were to use my real name, no one will know it’s me when they come and visit my blog and well I need my real name for business contacts and potential sponsors right? So there’s my reasons 🙂

Good thing the cards are not not expensive to print as there’s a local label printing company nearby.
