Hello, just want to thank you so much for coming in handy. I needed to make a conversion to figure out the size of a gemstone I'm thinking of purchasing and the seller gave me the dimension in inches. The last time I did that kind of math was a very long time ago ( I now know why I should of paid attention in class, rather than ask...what am I ever going to need to know that for?) Thank you again!!
From: Jennifer Gruber
