Have you ever worn anything worth more than your house?
I did this last weekend in New York. Slipping the $500,000 diamond solitaire ring onto my ring finger (the diamond was about as wide as my digit) made me rethink this whole "I really want to buy a house" thing. It broke my heart to give it back to the kind Tiffany & Co. employee.
I guess I'm on a new "I think I might die without that diamond" kick.
