Diamonds & Jewelry »


If you need your diamond repaired, the best diamond cutter is Alex Franckel, my father. Of course, I’m biased! At you can also see some interesting diamonds including the 14th largest diamond in the world and a diamond that glows in the dark.

Costco is my best pick simply because:

  1. Costco has the best return policy you can get anywhere;
  2. Their store brand, Kirkland is always very high quality.  In fact, if it says Kirkland, I immediately trust it;
  3. Costco usually has the best price.

While the three warehouse stores, Sam’s Club, BJ’s & Costco, sell some of the same products, many of the products are different, especially the store brand products.  Of the three warehouse stores, Costco has the highest quality products.  The most obvious difference in quality is readily apparent in the clothing “department”.  Costco has much higher quality clothing.  I would never consider buying clothing at the other warehouse stores.  In fact, I just purchased a gorgeous wool ski sweater for $169 which would probably cost $400-$500 at a ski store.

Costco even has some furniture that is very high quality and a bargain.  I purchased a solid rosewood cocktail table for $220 which I have seen in furniture stores for $1,200.  I also bought two solid wood bookcases (each weighs 220 pounds) for $390 each which would probably cost as much as $2,000 each in a furniture store.
