Jul 9th 2006 3:58PM Ms. Metz's BFF is proof that a lot of these breathless hypes about something are just that - hype. Write about what you know. This stone is ugly. A big bad-colored piece of glitz. If the owner ever gets wise, it will prove to be an embarassment and will live in a drawer forever. Better a small good quality stone than this oversize piece of junk. Luxist, hmmmm. Remind me never to go there.
