comma in single quote


Do I use a comma or a period after the end of the sentence in single quotes below? (e.g. after the word full)?

See example:

My dad is the optimist in the family always stating, 'Whether it be full of water, full of air, or half and half, the glass is always full,' and that's how I see it, too.

A comma is needed after the word "full". Because The glass is always full and that is how I see it is a compound sentence joined by a conjunction "and".

f you fancy a beautiful piece of bracelet or a necklace made of gemstone beads, then you probably should know a few things before buying it. Since real gemstones cost loads of money.( )
