Thanks!

Sorry Luvrocks, there's no FAQ for that yet. You just have to dive in and start asking questions. No worries! We're mostly friendly on DT.

Thing 1: Post pictures--we love to see "eye-candy," so post as many pictures of what you have, what you're getting, what you want, etc. as possible.

Thing 2: Diamonds go on the diamonds forum; sims (czs, moissanites, whatever) go on the Simulants forum

Thing 3: Giveaways usually have the instructions for how to play in the post. It usually involves sending a PM (private message) to whomever is running the giveaway.

Thing 4: This tends to cause newbies confusion--Asha is the brand name of a super-sim. Asscher is the name of a type of cut that resembles a square emerald cut. Just to add to the confusion, there is an Asha asscher cut.

Thing 5: BG means Bellisima Gems, a super-sim company owned by Gin. VG stands for Van Graff, a super-sim company owned by Juan. Interlap super-sims are available from Wink, and are also marketed under the name Winfields.

Thing 6: Before you start a thread asking which diamond is better (H&A or 8* or whatever) or which sim is better, use the search function in the appropriate forum. Both subjects have been discussed ad nauseum, and every time the subject comes up anew, the "discussions" too often become flame wars.

Most importantly: Welcome to DT!

Thank you so much... you've already answered a few of my questions... I couldn't figure out what BG was! This place is sooooo much fun!

Mags, you need to cut and paste that into a word document and post it for each newbie. Very good! I think it's very clear and easy to understand.



BTW-Welcome to DT. Hope you enjoy it!

Welcome to DT folks!

There are a few tips in my signature (including a new one I just added ) which might help as well.

Welcome to the crazy land of jewellery lovers. For the most part, we don't bite, although on occasion there can be some rather heated discussions. It sort of mirrors real life I suppose, because who hasn't been steamed to the point of boiling over? Heh.

It really is a nice community with an interesting mix of people from all walks of life, both professional and consumer, but I will warn you, it's addictive
Enjoy your stay.

LittleMagpie, great write-up!

Hey Gilbert, good to see you around. Either I've been missing your posts or you're actually working for a livin' ... j/k ~song
