its agents. If requested by the Company, SDG shall provide the Company with a
certificate of insurance naming the Company as loss payee on any insurance
policy covering the Inventory whereby any losses shall be paid to the Company
and the insured as their interest may appear.


         In addition to the Minimum Supply Requirements set forth in Section 1.1
above, the Company hereby grants to SDG the right of first refusal to supply to
the Company additional diamonds and jewelry.


         5.1 WEEKLY INFORMATION. On a weekly basis, the Company shall provide to
SDG information that is readily ascertainable by the Company regarding the
Company's sales of: (i) the Inventory; and (ii) diamonds and jewelry supplied by
parties other than SDG.

         5.2 QUARTERLY INFORMATION. The Company and representatives from SDG
shall meet once each quarter (the "Quarterly Meeting") and at such meeting the
Company shall provide to SDG information regarding the Company's projected needs
for diamonds and jewelry with respect to quantity, competitive market pricing,
quality and delivery requirements by category (the "Projected Needs Report").
The Projected Needs Report shall be based on the Company's historical and future
expectations of sales by the Company of diamonds and diamond jewelry.


(1)      SDG RESPONSE TO PROJECTED NEEDS REPORT. SDG shall have a reasonable
         period of time after each Quarterly Meeting, based on industry
         standards, to inform the Company of its intention to provide the
         Company with diamonds and diamond jewelry based on the Projected Needs
         Report. The Company shall provide to SDG purchase orders for all items
         from the Projected Needs Report which SDG agrees to provide (the
         "Purchase Orders"). The Company acknowledges that delivery times for
         diamonds and jewelry may range between 3 and 10 weeks from the date SDG
         receives the Purchase Orders, depending on upcoming SDG sites, cutting
         and certification requirements and manufacturing requirements, as the
         case may be, unless SDG notifies the Company that such Inventory item
         is "in production."

         5.3 REPLENISHMENT. If the Company deems it desirable to replenish any
Inventory which has been sold ("Replenished Products") prior to the Quarterly
Meeting, the Company shall offer the right of first refusal to SDG to provide
the Replenished Products at competitive market pricing and on such other terms
as mutually agreed upon by the parties.


         Through the Company's websites, the Company offers its users the
opportunity to search for loose stone diamonds based on color, cut, clarity,
approximate carat weight and retail price (collectively, the "Search Criteria").
The Company has and will continue to use its best efforts to ensure that persons
who use the Search Criteria will first be shown offerings of those certain loose
stone diamonds provided to the Company by SDG pursuant to Section 1 of this
Agreement or otherwise, and which are in the possession of the Company (the "SDG
Offerings"). The Company intends to work with SDG to increase the amount of
loose stone diamond offerings that are SDG Offerings. However, if a customer on
the Company's websites chooses to purchase a particular loose stone diamond that
is not a SDG Offering, then the Company shall be free to sell this selection to
such customer.


         Within 24 hours of the Company receiving a request from a customer for
a loose stone diamond which is not offered on the Company's websites (a
"Non-Website Diamond"), the Company shall provide SDG with the information
regarding its need for the Non-Website Diamond, which information shall include
cut, clarity, color and approximate carat weight and delivery needs. SDG shall
have 24 hours to inform the Company of its intent to provide the Company with
the Non-Website Diamond or a similar diamond, provided howeer, that such diamond
will be provided by SDG at cash market pricing. The Company and SDG acknowledge
that time is of the essence when fulfilling a customer request for a Non-Website

to the other, to review the books and records of each party to ensure their
compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
