Seventy-five years ago this month, Maxine "Imogene" Hocker and Max Duncan, stepped out in faith. At the start of World War II, the young couple like many, chose to marry. On Sunday, March 12th, the couple, ages 94 and 95, celebrated their love once again as family and friends marked their 75th wedding anniversary! 

Imogene jokes the pair were sweethearts for three years, before Max finally decided to marry - and kiss - her. They both say that it truly was love at first sight.  The pair have learned lots of lessons in the past 75 years. Among the most important, "don't sweat the small stuff."

The Duncan's raised 7 children, and have 16 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren! Now THAT is what we call a successful life.

The world's largest faceted aquamarine, March's birthstone, is the absolutely STUNNING Brazilian Dom Pedro. The obelisk-shaped Dom Pedro stands 14 inches tall, measures 4 inches across the base and weighs 10,363 carats!

The shapes you see inside it are natural hollow tubes that were imperfections in the crystal. Perfection found in imperfections. Amazing!

We love March's birthstone, Aquamarine!

This gemstone is both beautiful and affordable! Believed to protect sailors, as well as to guarantee a safe voyage, the serene color of aquamarine is said to cool the temper, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded. Generally, the larger the stone, the more intense the color. Aquamarine is most often light in tone and ranges from greenish blue to blue-green. Brazil is the main source of the world's aquamarine.

Lost antique engagement ring found thanks to comments section in Georgia newspaper!

When Wanda Nations lost her sentimental decades-old engagement ring in the parking lot of a restaurant on Feb. 9, she said she had little hope of ever finding it again. After looking with her husband, Pete, for hours,  she attempted a last-ditch effort to locate the heirloom ring by calling to place a plea in the comments section of her local paper, The Daily Citizen.

"I lost my wedding ring, possibly inside or outside of the Western Sizzlin' steakhouse on Legion Drive next to Lowe’s," Nations said in her voicemail to be published in the “Today’s Forum” section of the paper. "It has a wide band with a cluster of small diamonds on the top. It has great sentimental value. The band is 37-plus-years-old and the cluster is 62-plus-years-old. If found, please, please turn it into Western Sizzlin' and leave where you can be reached and you will be given a reward.”

A man named Rodney McConkey, an avid reader of the paper, had eaten at the restaurant the very same night as the Nations, and as he and his son Chris, were walking to their car, Rodney “saw a sparkle” on the ground. It was Nations' beloved ring. A week later Rodney saw the comment in the paper and it was a seamless transition getting the diamond-clustered ring back on Nations' finger.

“She teared up as soon as she saw it. It was beautiful,” McConkey recalled. “And lucky enough, on the day we found her, that was mine and my wife’s anniversary too. It was wild. Everything just fell together.” 

This is a world full of wonderful people, and stories like this warm our hearts.

What is a fancy cut diamond? Despite their exclusive-sounding name, fancy diamond cuts include every shape that is not a round cut. Round cut diamonds have always dominated the market; about 78-80% of diamonds sold are round. Fancy cut diamonds reflect the light differently because of the change in facet style and shape. Do you prefer fancy cut or round?

What's the secret to a long and happy marriage? "You have to have a lot of patience. You have to be forgiving. And sometimes you've gotta bite your tongue when you want to say something and it's not very nice," said Mary Hale.

Only a lucky few live long and well enough to celebrate 75 years of marriage! David and Mary Hale, both natives of Minneapolis, Minnesota, were married in January of 1942, and recently celebrated their 75th anniversary!

Mr. Hale would go on to a 30-year career in the military and civil service, using his degrees in music from the U.S. Army Music School and University of Minnesota School of Music in his service throughout the United States as well as Germany, Libya, Japan. Mrs. Hale attended business school and was a bank teller, cashier, finance officer and tech school instructor in civil service.
