  • A lost wedding ring has been returned to its owner after a year at sea! Mickey Walsh was vacationing near the beach with his family on Aug. 13, 2016, when a wave knocked the symbolism of his marriage right off his finger. "I was playing in the waves and I noticed it was off my hand," Walsh said. "I always take it off when I go into the ocean. For whatever reason, I didn't do it that time. I pretty much thought it was a lost cause." It took a year for the ocean's current to carry the ring north, and last Thursday, 11-year-old Daniel Barr spotted the ring on the beach. The discovery spawned an all-out search for the owner and Mickey's wife saw the ring from a post on Facebook! Mickey was thrilled to have his wedding ring back just in time for his 9th anniversary.

Traditionally, people have prized these gems for their celestial blues and violets. Its extraordinary color is the standard against which other blue gems—from topaz to tanzanite—are measured.

  • When did the tradition of engagement rings begin? Archduke Maximilian of Austria is often credited with changing the course of engagement rings forever in 1477 when he had a ring designed to include an M-shaped diamond. The M stood for Mary of Burgundy, his ladylove. However, the idea of a wedding band started long, long before. Archaeologists have discovered that cavemen would give their “brides” woven braids of grass that could be worn around the wrist or ankle. The use of wedding bands for the ring finger can be dated as far back as 2800 BC with the Egyptians! And we carry on this tradition today!

  • A diamond engagement ring lost in 2004 has turned up... on a carat! Plucked from the family garden 13 years after it was thought to be gone forever, Mary Grams is looking forward to putting her original ring back on. "I'm going to wear it because it still fits," she said. Grams, 84, said she thinks she lost the ring while pulling a large weed from the garden in September 2004. She has had the ring since 1951, a year before she married her husband, Norman. Grams's husband died five years ago, a month after the couple's 60th wedding anniversary. Her daughter-in-law, Colleen Daley, who found the ring said what we're all thinking: "If you look at it, it grew perfectly around the carrot. I've never seen anything like that."

  • Where did birthstones first originate from? Scholars trace back the idea of a gemstone assigned to each month of the year to the Breastplate of Aaron described in the book of Exodus in the Bible. The Breastplate was set with twelve gemstones representing the twelve tribes of Israel. The gems were set in four rows of three: Sardius, topaz and carbuncle; emerald, sapphire and diamond; ligure, agate and amethyst; andberyl, onyx and jasper. The connection was made between the 12 stones in the Breastplate and the 12 signs of the zodiac. However, it wasn't until much more recently, in 1912, that the modern list of birthstones was defined. The list remains to this day.

  • The Dos and Don'ts of Caring for Your Engagement Ring: 1. Do take extra care with your jewelry when traveling. Be careful what you lift while wearing your ring. Loose stones after traveling is not a coincidence; carrying heavy luggage is a surefire way to break or bend prongs. 2. Don't wear it during swimming or vigorous activity: Any activity that involves impact to your hands can bend or break the prongs that hold your stone in place, causing it to fall out of its setting. Similarly, we warn against wearing it during water activities as it's far easier for your ring to slip off when your hands are wet! 3. Do get it regularly checked by your trust local jewelers (that's us!). Even if you don't wear your ring while exercising, normal daily activity — fabric snags, say — can loosen prongs, putting your stone in danger of falling out. We recommend regular checks every 6 to 12 months to make sure the settings are secure. 4. Don't wear it while cleaning: Household cleaners such as bleach and common chemicals, such as acetone nail polish remover and chlorine from pools and hot tubs can erode alloys in precious metals.
