Reena Ahluwalia's diamond painting "The Portal of Eternity" pays tribute to the epic Asscher cut diamond, a cut of royalty. The inspiration for the painting came from Elizabeth Taylor's quote as she described her favorite diamond. To Reena, her quote is by far the best description of the magnificence of an Asscher cut. 

“When I look into it, the deep Asscher cuts – which are so complete and so ravishing – are like steps that lead into eternity and beyond. My ring gives me the strangest feeling for beauty. With its sparks of red and white and blue and purple, and on and on, really, it sort of hums with its own beatific life.”
— Elizabeth Taylor on her 33.19 carat "Krupp Diamond", now known as the "Elizabeth Taylor Diamond".

He fell for her when they were 9 ... and 84 years later, they're still in love!

When Thomas Howard was just a little boy, he and his family moved four doors away from the love of his life. According to Thomas, he knew right away when he first laid eyes on Irene that she was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.

By 1931, Thomas and Irene were spending every waking moment together. But in 1941, the two were forced apart for some time after 19-year-old Thomas was called to care for troops on the frontline in World War II. Thomas returned home safely and the happy couple were reunited. They soon moved in together and wed in May of 1945. This year, the couple celebrated their 70th anniversary.

"We're still in love all these years on," says Thomas. "If I was fortunate enough to do it all again I'd marry the same girl every time."

Taylor Swift surprises fan with a special performance of 'Blank Space' at his wedding (and gave him a handmade gift)!

While celebrating their love in front of their friends and family, Max Singer and Kenya Smith were surprised by Swift with a stripped-down performance of 'Blank Space' that she's coordinated with Max's sister Ali over the last few months. Back in April, Ali reached out to the singer about the death of her and Max's mother in a touching letter, telling Swift how her brother had wed his wife in the hospital so their mom wouldn't miss out on one of the biggest days of her son's life.

A brand new BIRTHSTONE has been added to August! It was announced on June 2nd that they are adding spinel to the official list of birthstones. It will join peridot as a birthstone for the month of August. 

American Gem Trade Association CEO Doug Hucker said, “Ancient gemstone merchants revered spinel, and it was widely sought after by royalty. It was then known as ‘balas ruby.’ We are very excited to announce it as the newest member of the official birthstone list.”

Examples of notable spinel in history are a 170-carat red spinel, known as the “Black Prince Ruby,” that is set in the Imperial State Crown in the British Crown Jewels, and a 398-carat red spinel that sits atop the Imperial Crown of Russia commissioned by Catherine the Great in 1763.

This is the third update to the modern birthstone list since it was officially created in 1912. It was updated in 1952 to add alexandrite, citrine, tourmaline and zircon as birthstones and again in 2002 when tanzanite was added as a birthstone for December.

Did it rain on your wedding day? That might be a good thing!

In some cultures, rain on your wedding day is considered good luck, symbolizing fertility and cleansing. Hindu tradition has it that rain signifies a lasting marriage. A knot that becomes wet is extremely hard to untie – therefore, when you “tie the knot” on a rainy day, your marriage is supposedly just as hard to unravel!
