Man Finds 2.89-Carat Diamond at Arkansas' Crater of Diamonds State Park

Wed, 12 Mar 2014

By Erika Winters

It's always fun to follow the latest discoveries at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas. And last week, lucky Brandon Kalenda from Louisiana found a 2.89-carat white diamond in the park's 37.5-acre search area. Kalenda, who was traveling from Louisiana to Minnesota with his family, decided to stop at the park at the request of his mother-in-law, according to a park statement. She had seen a segment of TLC's popular reality show 19 Kids and Counting in which the Duggar family visited the park to look for diamonds. Well, it's a good thing Kalenda listened to his mother-in-law, as his visit yielded a 2.89-carat diamond!

From Mary-Kate Olsen to Mila Kunis - Which New Celebrity Engagement Ring is Your Favorite?

Mon, 10 Mar 2014

By Erika Winters

Last week, when Mary-Kate Olsen first stepped out wearing a very bold, gold ring on her left hand, many of us were hoping for more details, as a few fleeting and blurry pictures are never enough! Well a jewelry sleuth on Instagram identified the ring with this picture, and the ring was traced to last month's Sotheby's Important Jewels auction. The ring is a mid-century Cartier design set with a 4-carat old European cut diamond surrounded by calibré-cut sapphires in 18k yellow gold. Don't you wish we had that level of detail about many of our favorite celebrity engagement rings?
