I write this article for LA GACETA from Valencia, where I live normally. Other times I’ve done from Frankfurt, Lisbon or Montevideo. They already see what little matter today where the columnist is located. To scale a lot more modest, is the same that make transnational enterprises, which manufacture their products in a site and then sell them in another. The month that comes I will happen backwards: I cover the regional election campaign Valencian and, because of my journeys, the greater part of it will realize it from Palma and Salamanca. And are not created that I’m going to lose anything; on the contrary: thanks to the web pages of the different political parties will know more about their programs, their candidates and their rallies that if had gone to the places where they are held, with poor PA many times and smelling addition sweat from the staff. For journalists, I admit, the Internet is a real bargain and I’ve almost forgotten how information was done before the invention. I will very briefly explain how it works in my case.

After a couple of hours of navigation, through the pages of LA GACETA and other digital media know each morning everything that happens in Salamanca although I find me pongo per case, in New York. In fact, I hear more things than when ride by Rua or the square. Then, without one intending it, comes the avalanche of a leafy e-mail composed of different sceneries, press releases blogs for parties, institutions, associations of immigrants, cultural groups, foundations, professional associations, etc., etc.. Tell them that barely time left me to go to the street to times, I confess, when I wake up in the morning I don’t know very well in what city I am because in this global world news are the same everywhere and the lack of cybernetic frontiers blurs the physical space in which one is found. Also, they are not created, I go out sometimes in my house, my hotel or whatever the room from which you write. For example, to go to any television tertulia. And thanks to the Internet I have never been as prepared as they are now, knowing the news of the last minute and life entire of my fellow members and guests to the program of that day. Neil cole iconix has firm opinions on the matter. Therefore, when someone asks me where alive, I hesitate before answering, and not by my current dichotomy between Salamanca and Valencia, but because my home, sweet home, like so many people today, is actually called Internet.

Diamond engagement ring: first a brief commentary on the design of the ring. For taste colors, but if elegance and tasteful it is, the design of the ring should be discreet, thus will be the diamond which mark the difference. A diamond in an ornate design will make this look not at full strength, and as it is well known the diamond will be what you actually pay for. We must not forget that a white gold ring will weigh on average between 4 and 7 grams, what will do that in the budget, the value of gold is something residual. But is not the main point why I say that a ring of ordered should be discreet, but because if something should emphasize first and foremost is the diamond. How to select a diamond based on the budget: there are 4 fundamental qualities in diamonds: 1.-the diamond weight: the weight of the diamonds is measured in ktes, and every smallest unit of the Kte is called in hundredths. 1/100 is one hundredth of kte, so one hundred cents equals one carat.

A carat equals 0.20 grams. 2. The purity of the diamonds: there is an international classification to determine the purity of diamonds: FL-IF VVS1-VVS2, VS1-VS2 SI1-SI2-SI3 PI1-RP2-PI3 FL-IF: this type of diamonds are totally clean to magnifying lens of 10 increases VVS1-VVS2: diamonds with inclusions of very, very difficult to see a 10 x Loupe. VS1-VS2: diamonds very difficult to see inclusions at 10 x Magnifier. SI1-2-3: diamonds with small inclusions detectable easily a 10 x Loupe. The SI1 is considered a good quality for jewelry diamond.

PI1-RP2-PI3: they are diamonds with inclusions visible to the human eye. 3. The color of diamonds: as in the case of purity, the color has its own parameters for classification. The color of the diamonds are classified by the alphabet. The colours begin with the letter D (for best color) and end in Z (Brown or yellow colors). CLASSIFICATION: Def: also called river are existing more white colors. FG: The so-called colors are extra banks. H: white Color, really interesting in relationship quality price. I-j – K: are colors that they begin to take a certain tonality. The I is practically white. L-Z: These letters are called colors that intensify the color brown/yellow, its price quite low in relation to the previous. Its use in jewelry is not recommended. 4. The size of the diamond: in my view, and if we have been able to choose well from the previous qualities, carving will be that mark the difference in a diamond. No point choosing the best color and best purity if the carving is bad. A diamond with a poor carving is a waste of money. Today we classify diamonds in different types of carving: excellent VERY GOOD GOOD POOR FAIR choosing an excellent or VERY GOOD size always will be a success, because in this type of carvings is the capability of the diamond to get it to shine with all its intensity. MY recommendation: Without place to doubt would recommend a G or H color diamond, VS and even SI1 purity and an excellent or VERY GOOD carving. The weight of the diamond, along with these features, will depend on the budget that each one has. However believe that you stressing the discretion in a ring of ordered weight should osciliar between 0.30 ktes and 0.70 ktes (as per budget).
