So I want to propose to my gf and don't have any money for a ring. Luckily for me, she doesn't care that I am broke and hates the global diamond cartel. She has told me she'd be fine without a ring, but hey, we all know that isn't true.

Unluckily, my lucky lady's mother works for a well-known jewelry company, where she sells jewelry to billionaires.

My chances of impressing my girlfriend's friends and my girlfriend's mother with a storebought right are 0%. So, I've decided to try and find a halfway decent diamond in the wild, get it cut, polished, and placed in a band and propose. The plan is eventually replace this ring with something better by the wedding and when my financial situation eventually improves.

>I figure this will raise my chances to about 2-5%

I am in California, so my options are limited. I've found a gold mine that was abandoned in the early 1900s a few hours from where I live located in the ghost town of Cherokee, CA (located near Oroville) (pic related). Apparently a number of gemstone quality diamonds were found at this location.

My plan is to drive there with some equipment (shovel, picks, pans, a geology guidebook, etc) to dig and pan for diamonds and gold for a weekend. I don't anticipate actually finding enough gold to make a ring or a diamond that will be suitable for a ring, but this seems like a fun adventure that could possibly pay off if I get lucky)

Has anyone ever done something like this? How does one actually find diamonds? My plan is to go up on the hillside, load up some buckets, and then shift through them, but this seems inefficient to say the least.

I don't plan on entering any boarded up shafts, if there even are any.

#150-"True Love" Edition

I wanted to do the Spring™ edition of the F&T Secret Santa, possibly making it an Easter basket but forgot all about it. Still tried to come up with an excuse to do it for the new season but so far Zuriss and one anon are the only people who showed interest so I'm not sure it will happen. I guess people just don't have the same holiday spirit of giving in April.
