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.

Turning rough, uncut diamonds into the beautiful jewels we wear, is an intense and artistic process! Rough diamond crystals are remarkably unremarkable. In their uncut state they possess no brilliance. Without the craftsmanship of man, diamonds look similar to a piece of common quartz.

It takes many hours and many steps for just one stone; marking, cleaving, sawing, girdling and faceting - each one critical to the quality and value of the diamond. Few people realize the time, intricacy and detail required to make the diamond on their finger sparkle the way it does!
