Mouthpiece falcon that's a movie that there were it wasn't a piece of jewelry but the Falco and the goal falcon had jewels -- the -- -- all around that was based data -- -- real the real thing also. It was the original was the. Commitment how is and this is I love this commitment house and hawk. A ceremonial. Pour pouring vessel made. And 1697. Which was. Gifts that was sent by the knights of Malta century -- to the form of a jewelry encrusted gold fell into the king of Spain. Yeah well okay along with the falcons. Okay and the whole movie was about the falcon in retrieving that falcon. That Sam Spade have the whole time Humphrey Bogart era classic movie right I not get information. I'll let go out by the way what little that out of things are -- that most people don't know whether it's not that though. They -- nothing more than a prop okay I'm making that movie there was no real gem there was no real falcon didn't need an arm artist I'm the director for that's on that.

And we'll be right back right of your best. I'm in love when I met her my life became better than any dream I could ask. I know that I don't want to live without her but should -- -- -- -- diamond for Valentine's.

It didn't into the dining -- all show. On top thirteen seven -- presenting sponsor Austin American -- and we'd like to thank. The folks over there. You know -- If someone is thinking about proposing for Valentine's Day. It would be good to kind of quickly go over the force seas of selecting a diamond because. A lot of people have heard the -- is but they don't maybe necessarily know what they are. I agree with you. I think when someone goes to look for diamond. It is like going to buy a piece of -- And if you turnaround in the if you. If you are looking to buy a piece of art you wanna know all the things about the artist you want and all the things what is medium was. What he had in mind what. So on what you really want to know whether it looks -- to make you feel good to look at it. But it does -- to a new blood diamond yes you wanna know it's clarity as you wanna know the color. And it would everybody calls and great color I want a good color is a lack of color. But on the other hand right now brightened this error over the world and this -- -- and our timeline. People look. Who are buying more diamonds with a little bit of body color than they are in the coldest. So. What is. You know doesn't mean if you have a flawless diamond. Okay which looks like a bottle of water if you you we've all during every -- some sort of mountain water. And if you look candidate in the it's really not clear it has sort of a grayish steel look to Witten. And that's what a colorless diamond looks like. And that that's my interpretation a little bit of a -- here I think yeah yeah well you know that's suggesting that the years ago they used to call them blue white diamonds but that's only a -- with for rest and cement. Which is giving it a false sparkle moved. Actually in most states today that's against the water used that term. Blue white diamond because it's not considered a -- term. Well you always say you know it's good to know cut -- clarity cost that kind of thing but it bottom line comes down to what do you like what is your I like what it. You know what what do you think it's pretty -- you're right because there's a design around there right now one of the things that they do. Is they -- the -- that's what the biggest largest. The most conclusions and they use it in the form of art and they do something different with the home and that can be pretty too. I dislike you knew Brian emerald. That there's a lot of it will. Admirals have the most flaws of any gemstone. There. They call them gardens. That's the technical term believe and I'm -- of them of the flaws and yet it's called garden. In if you can't appreciate. That. Then you shouldn't own one. So there even the expensive ones have flaws in the. Such interest when I think back to I got in correlation to picking husbands are I any effect life and and thank you can appreciate the plus Tokyo on the. That is so. This and I always see the tiny and took -- bone -- -- I'll figure it takes about three months. Okay when you know someone to they stuck to become the real self.
