"I wear my jewelry all of the time. Is that safe? Should I wear my jewelry in the shower?"

We hear lots of questions from women about how best to safely care for their jewelry and this one comes up frequently! The down and dirty answer is: No, wearing your jewelry in the shower is really not a good idea.

For starters, it's too easy for your jewelry to slip off of you and slide right down the drain, especially with the slippery assistance of soap. In addition, soaps, shampoos, conditioners and lotions can leave residue on your favorite piece, dimming its sparkle, or contain chemicals that may actually damage your jewelry.

While removing your jewelry when you shower is the best choice, practically speaking, it may not always happen. Though there is certainly a risk, some people have jewelry they never remove for a variety of reasons. If you do end up wearing your jewelry in the shower (and really just due to regular wear), you will definitely want to clean the piece on a routine basis.

If you are worried about losing your jewelry if you remove it, just be sure to put it in the same place every time. Whether it's in a small dish, a jewelry box or even a jar of jewelry cleaner (hey, you can keep your jewelry safe and clean it too!), being consistent with where you store your jewelry will help keep it safe.

Spring cleaning REMINDER:

A lot of household cleaners (particularly anything containing bleach) are not safe for your jewelry, so be sure to remove your jewelry first or wear gloves!

A Christian pastor has discovered a giant 706-carat diamond in Sierra Leone which could be the 10th largest EVER found and worth more than $60 MILLION!

The precious stone was found by Emmanuel Momoh, who was working in the Kono region, in the east of the country.  The diamond was discovered in a smaller, or artisan, mine, which diamond expert Paul Zimnisky said rarely find gems of this size and quality. 'Artisanal mining tends to produce smaller, lower quality diamonds because the diamonds suffer breakage and erosion,' which is what makes the find so surprising and astounding!

A single 25-carat portion is likely to sell for $2.2 million to $3.6 million. Zimnisky said that it is impossible to put a value on the diamond at this point, but the estimated value is at least $60 million.

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!

A giant pink diamond has become the most expensive jewel ever sold at auction, fetching $71.2 million at Sotheby's in Hong Kong last week! Clocking in at 59.60 carats, the Pink Star was the largest polished diamond ever to go on the auction block.

It took nearly two years to cut the Pink Star from a rough diamond. It first appeared in public in 2003 and later became part of an exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, home of the famous 45.52 carat blue Hope Diamond. It was also displayed at the Natural History Museum in London.

The world's most valuable cut diamond, a 59.60-carat diamond known as "The Pink Star," is returning to auction and could fetch a record of more than $60 million! 

The pink diamond is the largest Internally Flawless Fancy Vivid Pink diamond ever graded by the Geological Institute of America (GIA), yet the sparkling stone is still small enough to fit onto a ring, the auction house said. The estimated value is $72 million. 

Just ... look at it. Speechless.

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.
