If you need to justify, then it's just not for you.

Really? I once wore a platinum necklace to a jewellery store and the owner, perhaps 2 meters from me, commented that the platinum necklace looked great.

I am no expert but also think the difference between platinum and stainless, though subtle, is recognizable.

Yeah but itís a worthwhile topic. I did not get the white gold thing and someone explained how he likes the weight, the warmth of the color and the fact itís not quite as showy as yellow gold. My only additional comment is, remember the gold rush in the Western US in the 1800s? Never found white gold did they?!

Do you really expect him to be watching this thread seven years after he posted in it?

I find necrobumped threads fascinating because they show just how reliant the internet was on Photobucket. It might be the most epic internet own-goal of all time that the company managed to throw it all away.
