Crazy Jewelry Stories in March

March is about day light savings, St. Patrick’s Day, the onset of spring, and some crazy stories with jewelry playing muse!

A Watch and a Ring

A UK based jeweler designed a watch that has about 153 carats of diamonds on the bracelet with a flawless D color 38 carat pear shaped diamond at the center of the watch dial. Valued at $40 million, the icing on the cake is that the pear shaped diamond can be taken out and worn as a ring.

Omega watch

Omega has unveiled a dive watch worth $760,000. What’s special about this watch you may ask? Well, with diamonds of about 40 carats and water resistance to 1200 meters, this may well be the most expensive dive watch in the world.

Recycled Gold from E-Waste

A South African jeweler sources 90% of her raw material by breaking down circuit boards and other e-waste. She extracts tiny bits of precious metals like gold, copper, silver and creates jewelry out of e-waste.

Can One Have Too Many Engagement Rings

It’s come to light that Victoria Beckham has been married to one man but has upgraded her engagement rings 13 times! That’s almost one new engagement ring for each year she’s remained married to David Beckham….We concur that there’s nothing quite like diamonds to keep a marriage fresh and young.

Most Extravagant Easter Bunny

A London Jeweler and chocolatier have collaborated, to create an Easter bunny with two, 1.7 carat diamond eyes. Once you’ve wolfed down this chocolate bunny, valued at $37,000, the jeweler offers to make a custom piece of jewelry free of charge with the solitaires.

Transformer Jewelry

A new trend emerging from Europe is the popularity of jewelry that transforms from being a necklace, to earrings, to bracelet and so on! A Cypriot jewelry designer has a Transformer collection that includes rings that may be worn in 18 different ways or a piece of jewelry that becomes a bejeweled bird, ring, or  transforms into a pendant based on what the wearer is in the mood for.

125,000 year old Statement Necklaces

While dusting the fossilized remains of Neanderthals, scientists at a Croatian museum have discovered an ancient necklace that’s about 125,000 years old, made out of eagle talons. This discovery suggests that jewelry is as old as human existence.

Girl Scouts, Wear pearls

To commemorate the 103rd anniversary of the founding of the Girl Scouts, members are wearing pearls. It’s said that the organization’s founder Juliette Gordon Low funded the early days of Girl Scouting by selling her string of pearls.

Royal Favorite

Though Queen Elizabeth is April born and diamond is her birthstone, her personal favorite happens to be Aquamarines. Her collection of aquamarines started off when she received an aquamarine necklace and earrings from the President of Brazil as coronation gift back in 1953. She later on added a tiara, bracelet and other aquamarine jewelry pieces to her collection.

Cheesy Theft

A diamond studded cheese slicer worth $30,000 was stolen from the Amsterdam Cheese Museum. This slicer was studded with 220 diamonds. Finders who help with the retrieval of this expensive cheese slicer are being enticed with a reward of a cheese laden gift basket and a large cheese fondue set!

Diamond Fun Facts

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Diamonds are all about Cut, Clarity, Color, and Carat. And diamonds are the birthstone for the April born.  Read on to discover fun facts associated with the hardest rock on Earth.

Origin of the Word Diamond

The word diamond originated from the Greek word “Adamas” that means “indestructible” and “unconquerable”.

Multi-Hued Splendor

Diamonds are usually pale yellow to colorless, but can also be naturally brown, blue, green, orange, red, pink and black.

Fiery Ice

The Greeks believed that diamonds broke away from stars and fell on earth. However, we now know that diamonds found on earth incubate under intense heat and pressure 90 to 120 miles below earth and are delivered to us through volcanic eruptions. No wonder, it takes about 6420F to melt these pure carbon crystals!

Born out of Dirt

To produce a single one carat diamond, about 250 tons of earth has to be mined. Botswana, Russia, and Canada are the world’s largest diamond mines.

This Aged Beauty

Diamonds are almost as old as our beloved planet. The Earth is believed to be 4.5 billion years old and the oldest diamonds are estimated to be 3.3 billion years old.

Diamonds and Love

Cupid’s arrows had diamond studded tips according to ancient Roman belief, fostering the earliest association of diamonds and love. The first known use of diamonds for engagement ring happened in 1477 when Archduke Maxmillian of Austria gave Mary of Burgundy a gold ring with an M spelt out with diamonds.

Star Studded

Scientists have discovered and named a star Lucy after the Beatles song “Lucy in the sky with diamonds”. This star is basically a diamond of ten billion trillion trillion carats.

The Diamond Rush

Tourists and locals alike flock to the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas – the only dig-for-free diamond mine open to public. Since 1906, more than 70,000 diamonds have been discovered in this open mine including the 40 + carat “Uncle Sam” diamond.

Largest Diamond

Discovered in 1905 in South Africa, the Cullinan diamond weighed 3106 carats. Cut into 9 large and 100 small diamonds, the three largest crystals of the original Cullinan are on display at the Tower of London as part of the Crown Jewels.

Like ‘em or love ‘em, diamonds are surely a thing of beauty that lasts forever. And when you wear our diamond jewelry that’s made out of ethically sourced, conflict free diamonds, you make a dazzling statement of your evolved values.
