Fedeltà #527

by

Paolo took the diamond and weighed it roughly on his electronic kitchen scales. Then he went online looking to get an idea of its value. Of course, there were all sorts of caveats depending on quality, colour and cut. However, even on the pessimistic side, he estimated it must be worth over £5,000. Definitely tradeable.

His concern was that Sofia had evidence that could not only send him to jail for a long time, but, possibly worse, result in his execution, and not a pleasant one either. What would it take to destroy that evidence?

And how to make contact?

    My sister used to have some dealings in that industry and this drabble reminded me of the four C's when it comes to assessing diamonds - cut, color, clarity and carat. I used to hear that phrase.

    Funny you should say that Christopher. A jeweller mate of mine said the same thing to me this evening. Weird coincidence.
