5 Tips to a Long and Successful Marriage! Couples celebrating their Diamond Anniversary (60 years!) were asked for advice for people hoping to have the same kind of marital success. Here’s what they had to say:
 
1. Patience
"Just be patient, and pay attention to what's going on, and have a lot of discussions but don't always be right."
 
2. Reciprocation
"Give and take, and be patient. Be content with what you have and work at it.”
 
3. Balance and Forgiveness
"You'll have your ups and your downs, but the ups are usually better than the downs. We always knew, not everybody is perfect, so we were willing to forgive when we had to. Be thankful for what you have.
 
4. Hang In There!
"I think take one day at a time and try and make it as good as you possibly can. It's not all a smooth road, you've got some bumps along the way but you just gotta work your way through them and stick with it.”
 
5. One word
Is there really a secret to a successful marriage? "Yes," said Earl Jewell about his marriage with wife Helen. "Love."

Jacqueline Onassis Kennedy was well-known for her affinity with June's birthstone, pearl, and to many, she was the epitome of elegance!

Known for her sophisticated sense of style, her love for colorful and fashion-forward attire, pearls were the perfect way to compliment her vibrant but chic fashion sense with a kiss of old-world class and charm. There was a kind of mystique about her, a subtle allure and enchantment that seemed mirrored in the lustrous pearls that captured the collective imagination of a nation.

How exactly does June's birthstone, pearl, form in nature?

Pearls are formed when a tiny bit of sand or material gets trapped inside an oyster. The oyster produces a “nacre” as a defense mechanism that coats the intruder, layer after layer. A pearl is formed naturally in only 1 in every 10,000 oysters. 

Freshwater pearls can take between 1 and 6 years to form; whereas saltwater may take between 5 and 20 years. The longer a pearl stays in the shell, the more nacre that forms and the larger the pearl. Freshwater pearls can grow to be just as big as saltwater pearls, but they take less time to develop because the layers of nacre are not as compact as those surrounding the saltwater pearl.

You may have heard the dangers of swimming with your ring, but a picture is worth a thousand words! Repeated chlorine exposure can eat the alloys out of your gold, leaving it brittle and structurally compromised! Take good care of your jewelry this summer and bring it in to us if you need it inspected, repaired or cleaned!

June's popular alternate birthstone, Alexandrite, is one of the most interesting and rare gem varieties in the world!

Alexandrite is a relatively modern gemstone, discovered in Russia in 1831. What makes alexandrite such a unique gemstone: It has a chameleon-like ability to change colors, and has been described as an “emerald by day, ruby by night.” It is a lovely green in both daylight and fluorescent light; it changes color to a purplish red in incandescent light!

Wondering what to get the recent graduate in your life? Vogue magazine says, "Jewelry always works!"

Unlike the annual gifting rituals surrounding birthdays and holidays, graduations come along only a few times in a young person’s life. As both a time to celebrate a great accomplishment and an important step toward adulthood, the graduation gift is a good place to splurge, but smartly. For a classic gift that is both imbued with the sentiment of the moment and will last the recipient a lifetime, jewelry is utterly foolproof.

Sophia, 88, and Tony George, 93, are celebrating 70 years together!

This becomes all the more amazing when you consider that recent research at Bowling Green State University say fewer than 1% of married couples stay together this long and that in the future, 70th anniversaries — platinum anniversaries — will become much more rare; people are waiting longer to get married, divorced more frequently, and won't live long enough to reach the seven-decade milestone.

After all, 70 years of downs and ups, sicknesses and health, arguments and apologies, breakups and makeups — Sophia left Tony twice, (three times if you count the breakup during their courtship!) — it is quite a feat! They survived together, thrived even, by being stubborn and selfless and learning from their mistakes. They grew and changed and, after some tumult, accepted each other's changes. They committed themselves to something bigger than themselves: their marriage and the family that came from it. They made it their life's work.

When people ask them how they got to this incredible point, they both say it wasn't easy, and that they love each other. But that's only a small part of their incredible story.
