Social media can be a lot of things, so we love when a fun story like this pops up. Check out how one woman found a wedding date on Twitter and now they're engaged! 

*spoiler for those of you who may think that sounds crazy: he wasn't a stranger* :-)

Opal, October’s birthstone, comes in many stunning varieties. When a fire opal is illuminated just right, it looks like a sunset above the cloud; such as with this magnificent opal #opal #fireopal

Five years ago, an Ohio woman purchased a costume jewelry brooch, or so she thought, for just $8. Last week, it sold at auction for more than $26,000!

"The owner of the brooch gave it to her daughter to wear to church but she placed it in the bottom of her handbag and forgot about it. On a visit to a jeweller many months later, she was told the brooch was not costume but was, in fact, a very real and very valuable piece of 20th-century jewellery," said Bonhams Auction house in the US.

Set throughout with old European-cut diamonds, the brooch features an old mine-cut diamond, weighing 1.39 carats, a rectangular-shaped emerald originating from Colombia and weighing about 1.50 carats and an oval-shaped Burmese ruby, weighing 0.60 carat.

"All of Nature’s splendour seems to be reflected in the manifold opulence of fine Opals: fire and lightnings, all the colours of the rainbow and the soft shine of far seas."

Opal is October's second birthstone (along with tourmaline). The name derives from the Greek 'Opallos', meaning "to see a change (of color)." Opals range from milky white to black with flashes of yellow, orange, green, red, and blue. Opal is a formation of non-crystalline silica gel. Through time and nature's heating and molding processes, the gel hardened into the form of opals.

The amazing opal pictured is called "Galaxy Opal."

Here is some fun information about one of October's birthstones, Tourmaline: 

Since it is available in a wide variety of colors, it is ideally suited to almost anyone's taste. Tourmaline is also well-known for displaying several colors in the same gemstone! These bi-color or tri-color gems are formed in many combinations. 

One amazing and prized multi-color variety is known as watermelon tourmaline (pictured), and features green, pink, and white colors bands.

The Lesedi La Rona, a diamond the size of a TENNIS BALL, just sold for $53 million!

The stone is the largest gem-quality rough diamond to have been found this century, with the largest ever found being the 3,107-carat Cullinan Diamond, which was discovered in 1905 in South Africa. Lesedi La Rona means “our light” in the local Botswana language.

Now it is buyer Laurence Graff’s job to turn the natural marvel into several sparkling stones.

"Our highly skilled team of master craftsmen will draw on many years of experience of crafting the most important diamonds, working night and day to ensure that we do justice to this remarkable gift from Mother Nature. The stone will tell us its story, it will dictate how it wants to be cut, and we will take the utmost care to respect its exceptional properties."

Just finished this ring for our good friend and customer Nina Soifer. Nina gave me free rein to make whatever I wanted with a couple of scrap rings she had.

9 years ago, Justin and Margaret Mussel, of Brick, N.J., lost a diamond engagement ring in Italy. A few weeks ago, they found it wedged into a crack on an Italian sidewalk! "Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think we would find it again," said Justin, who spotted the diamond glinting off of car lights. Margaret slipped it on. It still fit. “The band is a little scuffed up, but not too bad,”Margaret said. “The diamond looks good. If you saw it, you wouldn’t think it was in a crack for nine years.” Diamonds are forever, after all. Read the entire remarkable story here: https://usat.ly/2hgszb3
