It seems that more and more people are interested in setting up their own small or homebased business these days. Current figures indicate that in the USA alone there are over 25,000,000 people operating a home based business and just in case you think that many of these businesses are run as hobbies the figures show that over 5,000,000 of them have turnovers in excess of $100,000. Not all of these businesses are internet based.

Take a look at this home jewelry biz. If you have a flare for art, you can make a fortune designing your own brand of jewelry and either selling them on your blog or on eBay. The link below not only supplies a complete course on how to make jewelry but also one of the largest wholesaler in jewelry supplies.

THE 4 C's OF A DIAMOND

CARET

Refers to the weight of a diamond. Caret is often confused with size even though it is actually a measure of weight. One caret is equivalent to 200 milligrams. One caret can also be divided into 100 points. A .7caretat diamond is the same as a 75-points or 3/caretat diamond. Since larger diamonds are found less frequently in nature it is more valuable. 1-carat diamond will cost more than a 1/2-carat diamond (assuming color, clarity and cut remain constant). Cut and mounting can make a diamond appear larger (or smaller) than its actual weight.
CLARITY

Refers to the presence of inclusions in a diamond. Nature forms every diamond as unique as every person ever born. Diamonds have naturally occurring features known as inclusions. Inclusions are ranked on a scale of perfection, known as clarity, which was established by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). The clarity scale, ranging from F (Flawless) to Included (I), is based on the visibility of inclusions at a magnification of 10x. The greater a diamond's clarity, the more brilliant, valuable and rare it is.
COLOR

Refers to the degree to which a diamond is colorless. Diamonds are found in almost every color of the rainbow, but white-colored diamonds remain most popular. Diamonds are graded on a color scale established by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) which ranges from D (colorless) to Z. Nature has also created diamonds in intense shades of blue, green, yellow, orange, pink or the rarest of all is red. These diamonds are called colored fancies and are extremely rare and highly treasured.
CUT

Refers to the angles and proportions of a diamond. It takes a master cutter to reveal the stones true brilliance, fire and ultimate beauty. Based on scientific formulas, a well-cut diamond will internally reflect light from one mirror-like facet to another and disperse and reflect it through the top of the stone. This results in a display of brilliance and fire, thereby placing well-cut diamonds more valuable than deep or shallow-cut diamonds. Diamonds that are cut too deep or too shallow lose or leak light through the side or bottom, resulting in less brilliance and ultimately, value.

HOW THIS PAGE GOT IT'S NAME

The thing that most inspired me to name my page Yellow Diamond was a story I read in the #1 Bestseller book called Think and Grow Rich by Dennis Kimbro and Napoleon Hill. Here is the quote from this book that inspired me.

The story is called “Acres of Diamonds” was the true story of a poor farmer who settled in Africa and spent years struggling to raise his crops. His land was rocky and difficult to till. Disenfranchised with his circumstances, the farmer became increasingly fascinated by tales of easy wealth gained by men who had searched for the discovered diamonds in the countryside. He, too, wanted to be rich. He grew tired of the endless labor, and impulsively sold his farm to search for diamonds. For the rest of his life he wandered the vast African continent searching for the gleaming gems. But the great discovery always eluded him. Finally, in a fit of despondency, broken financially, spiritually, and emotionally he threw himself into a river and drowned.

Meanwhile, the man who had bought his farm found a rather large and unusual stone in a stream that cut through his property. It turned out to be a diamond of enormous value. Stunned by his newfound wealth, the farmer discovered that his land was virtually covered with such stones. It was to become one of the world’s richest diamond mines!

The moral of this story is that at any given moment each of us is standing in the middle of his or her own acres of diamonds. If only we acquire the wisdom and patience to intelligently and effectively examine our circumstances and to explore the work in which we are now engaged, we usually will find that it contains the riches we seek whether they be material, spiritual or both.
