OK it was wrong you know when people make mistakes and they say they they withdraw that comment you know they yeah this is this is. It was a typo. And. And so when you itself disclosed to -- you're a moron you're making -- -- while I was trying to give you the edge of the well I used to working with. Now -- more or -- his parents. A lot of experience there. Question for us on the program answer questions about diamonds obviously but any kind of jewelry question. And not -- relationship questions as -- is Dave. They think he understands men and women with which nobody in the -- had a you're a moron after all -- call at 8327792678. We have from questions from Robert. Are they can do my name is Roberts and have a question for your domino and also I wanted to know where that name tennis bracelet can pump. And I also wanted to know I'm in the market for tennis bracelet in my life and I wanted to see. -- -- to -- great -- on the tennis bracelet and has tumbled over some of gold. Incredibly different -- and -- references to get that specific. We shook him -- let's start with the history of it. They were originally called line bracelets. -- which is -- line LI -- yes or Miami it's that. You know New England accent that I had. I -- we -- a lot -- knowing the kind of thing you put in what we put water we put ours in words that don't have ours and we take them out with they are the okay. All right -- long -- is originally called old line bracelet right and then along came Chrissie Everett. And I think it was late late eighties like 87 -- and chi. Or tennis bracelet on to do with tennis match. And she. But what you don't know is though you may know if you saw our. Was that -- mom she asked the line judge to stop the match for a few minutes because she'd lost the bracelet. It fell off so current current and from that day on May be keen tennis bracelets. So she wore it in a match just randomly and John got so much attention. The -- the name of the bracelet changed. -- pretty amazement that she was hot back then I mean is it in the tennis world she knew she was the person there are people today that even bomb. Like come. Serena Williams she wears tennis bracelet. While she plays tennis -- big earrings to get a life and it never outfits that she creates and designs are pretty and I'll bet you didn't know that I know this but -- some very unique is that Nowitzki and the -- US. A diamond bracelet. What you place him. So I hate him back on mark the diamond and. -- -- at all well the tennis snow at all you know I played tennis did you know that guests. And I ain't I have if I'm -- so did Christie Wear it on her right. Are hurt you know that. Dominant hander or any other guard Dominic and she's dead Seattle like having anything jingle on the hand that I'm actually with holding the racquet with my Wear myself on the other side. Because I like that. Jingle link but it tennis bracelet doesn't isn't loose it's kind of fitted a little tighter well. Tennis -- perfect for a person that. Wants to win jewelry and that is active because it does it's very flexible. And it doesn't interfere with anything to you could. You could actually be -- car mechanic and -- Arab diamond bracelet well Robert's question what he said there's gold one silver one seat belts and other different -- -- you know that the funny thing is this all prices in the great it's it's they always talk about diamond bracelets and diamond weight total weight. So that embrace it could have a half carat diamonds total -- can have. One carat total weight nine carries ten carats total weight. Armed and different -- just like you'd buy at any other diamond that you don't wanna buy engagement quality diamonds and tennis bracelet. You would want to buy something a little less than that it's -- wouldn't be so expensive but they range in price the the used to be a couple years back that you could buy -- time a space of for a couple hundred bucks. But today that's not gonna happen something decent. -- a -- -- I was in -- more now it's -- It isn't just a bracelet. And hers are certain style to it that make well tennis for their all in one line. What I what is that aren't I -- one Linehan could mixed them up with rubies and -- as a -- could have also fires all ruby's or all anything you want it. But it is that mechanism that that it's very very flexible. So that it moves freely and you could even tell some of them that are made badly they get hung up on themselves when -- chart showed that come. Move them whom you know like you at a swanky moon right. You know death or it's the same I've pat I've a setup pearls that doesn't know very well and then I'm I have another sad that is -- fluid -- that is that in the broke the way they taught the way they tell them not some you know what that. So. That they they string pros on when -- tight in the beginning an issue we have them. They loosen up a little bit. So are getting back to. The bracelet to what he's saying is Silber is a white gold probably more than likely -- okay so -- white gold. And then there's yellow gold and -- -- combat by the way. So you would turn around and say he's so -- Said the budget he -- -- I always think people should set budgets I wanna spend 2000 dollars I wanna spend you know ten dollars whatever it is. And that way when you go win you can see 1000 dollars buys -- what 500 dollars buys so. And and that way you can make an intelligent decision and once again as they always say you wanna go to somebody that an independent jeweler. That is gonna tell you the truth that is gonna say this two carat bracelet is X amount of dollars in these the benefits -- the features of it. And then this one's 2500. Dollars and. Different is AB CD. And if that is BCD means something the year and you. Can afford it and you -- And our presenting sponsor Austin America's diamonds I would imagine has tennis bracelet for sale they have a whole show peaceful. Is this summer is. Is tennis bracelet. A gift that is common for Christmas absolutely perfect Christmas. But we find in the -- is -- we never know until the season's over this year could be tennis bracelets. Next year compete diamond earrings. All it never at the same year -- -- -- -- won't -- any but sometimes it's huge in one and not the other what drives that. I I think kids need and how much are celebrities what they're wearing elaborate interactive abs absolutely effective but I also think it's a man's mouth that affects -- -- -- -- when he says something wrong and then just goes up -- price what the gift this you know. And that there's a guaranteed market just. Men being how they are. Good but that's the church people lucky. Look Christmas shopping lot of people are looking for gift ideas tennis bracelets. Get one what else. Plus you know elbow -- what what the price of gold and diamonds right now being on the high side. What I would what I would tend to tell people do list colored gemstones so beauty of -- so many beautiful things out there right now. That have filled that void in that. 500 to a thousand dollar price range that you think you can fill. With a beautiful colored gemstone which have very very hot in the fashion world right now in inner ring or a ring and necklace and bracelet. Pendant. Hearings. And a gemstone. For.
