March 13th – National Jewel Day


My friend Tali is very passionate about diamonds and jewels (See her book Jeweled). So I let her pick today’s adventure.

We went to Tiffany’s on 5th Avenue to see the Tiffany Diamond.

This Diamond was discovered in the 1877 and cut from 287 carats to 128 by a 23 year old gemologist who had just joined the company. Imagine that stress! This famous diamond has been worn by only two people. A socialite, and Audrey Hepburn for publicity photos of Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

We listened to information about the diamond, took some photos, then spent some time looking at jewelry and picking out our favorite diamond rings. The staff at Tiffany’s is so helpful and welcoming. I don’t think anybody thought we were going to purchase anything, but that didn’t stop them from giving us great service. That is a wonderful way to run a business.

We got photos with the Tiffany Diamond, and with the rings we each chose. When we asked the man behind the counter if we could try on rings “in honor of National Jewel Day,” he laughed and said, “you never need a reason to try on a diamond ring!” I had a great time today!
