A Royal Engagement

Now this is news!! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially engaged!!

The engagement ring, which the prince himself designed,
bore three glittering diamonds on a gold band: a central stone from Botswana
and two others from the personal collection of his mother, Princess Diana.


Look at that ring!

The stunning diamond ring is fit for the incoming member of the royal family.

One of our classics, our Danelian engagement ring with 3 brilliant diamonds.

Prince Harry is following the lead of his brother Prince William, who gave Kate Middleton
the 18-carat sapphire and diamond ring that once belonged to his mother.

The wedding is planned for next spring…May they live happily ever after!

stoned #stayHome #readaboutdiamonds

This is simply our kind of glam homy read ;) And a New York Times bestseller too!
As entertaining as it is incisive, Stoned is a raucous journey through the history of human desire for what is rare, and therefore precious. What makes a stone a jewel? What makes a jewel priceless? And why do we covet beautiful things? In this brilliant account of how eight jewels shaped the course of history, jeweler and scientist Aja Raden tells an original and often startling story about our unshakeable addiction to beauty and the darker side of human desire.

What moves the world is what moves each of us: desire. Jewelry—which has long served as a stand-in for wealth and power, glamor and success—has birthed cultural movements, launched political dynasties, and started wars. Masterfully weaving together pop science and history, Stoned breaks history into three categories—Want, Take, and Have—and explains what the diamond on your finger has to do with the GI Bill, why green-tinted jewelry has been exalted by so many cultures, why the glass beads that bought Manhattan for the Dutch were initially considered a fair trade, and how the French Revolution started over a coveted necklace.

Studded with lively personalities and fascinating details, Stoned tells the remarkable story of our abiding desire for the rare and extraordinary.
