A Rare Gem

I bought my wife a diamond ring 20 years ago for our engagement. This was before the 'blood diamond' days.

It cost $750. A month after we were married, while working on the concrete foundation for a back porch, the ring disappeared. The next 'diamond' ring she picked out was a cubic zirconia, and also cost seven fifty ($7.50).

New diamond ring, $750, replacement fake ring, $7.50, my wife, Priceless.
