Don't remind me. I used to work in Hatton Gardenm, and bought Gill's
engagement ring there. Well, that's not quite true, I bought the
*pieces* of Gill's engagement ring there. Which is a story in itself
that I'll tell at a London.pm social evening one time.

The scariest bit was handing over 400 or so worth of gem + gold to
the bloke who was going to turn it into a real ring. A bloke who I had
never met before that moment. Who was going to do the work for 15
quid. And he looked surprised when I asked for a receipt.
