A lady *should* have healthy appetites :lol:

An appraiser friend of mine once ran a stall for charity. A 1ct D IF diamond was placed in a bowl of maybe 500 approx 1 ct top class CZ, well and same cut. The correct identifier of the diamond was to get to keep it as the prize (no instruments allowed). There were ample entries but no winner :roll:
