MONEY MANNERS

Posted: July 30, 2014 at 2:07 a.m.

DEAR JEANNE &; LEONARD: I'm concerned that my friend "Sarah" doesn't understand how much the gift I gave her is worth. She and I have been good friends since eighth grade, so when she graduated from medical school, I gave her a pair of one-of-a-kind silver earrings. They cost a lot, but I have a great job now and can afford it. I can see, though, that while Sarah loves the earrings, she doesn't understand how valuable they are. Should I tell her she could buy a weekend in Cancun for what they cost?
