Diamonds are a girl’s best friend


Dear Hillary,

I am seriously looking at investing in some diamond jewelry, but with so many shops I don’t know where to start. Can you recommend a place?



Dear Gerald,

Firstly, I don’t have any diamond jewelry, so have no idea about prices, Petal. Secondly, I don’t have one of Gideon’s rich Farangs in the middle of being ripped off (see letter above yours), and thirdly, I am told by those who do know these things, that you should not invest in diamonds unless you really know what to look for, and it isn’t the price tag. And I do remember a street trader in Walking Street advertising “Genuine Cubic Zirconias”. Looked OK too.
