Disclosure Policy

Last Updated: April 1, 2018

This is a personal blog and all opinions are my own. 

This is a for-profit blog.

I use affiliate links for various products and/or services. An affiliate link allows me to receive a commission if you end up purchasing something when you click on the link. You will not pay more if you purchase through my affiliate link. I will always disclose when one of my links is an affiliate link, usually by noting “this post may contain affiliate links” right after the title.

I may also do sponsored posts. Sponsored posts mean that I received compensation, discounts and/or complimentary items or services in exchange for a review or promotion. I rarely do sponsored posts, but when I do, they will also be clearly noted, usually by saying “this is a sponsored post” right after the title. All sponsored posts are products or services that I honestly believe in and recommend. Any information that I provide is based on my honest opinion. 

Although I am a gemologist (GIA GG), the information presented is from my own education and personal experiences, and does not guarantee or promise specific results.
