People often ask Jennie Ciccolo to tell the story of how she met her husband, Joe, the love of her long life. Every time she does, she says, “My heart still goes pitter patter.”

“I had trouble breathing. My heart started pounding,” she said. “Oh my God, he was so handsome.” Their hearts still beat a bit faster when they see each other.

Joe, 96, and Jennie Ciccolo, 93, recently celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary! Joe is a resident of a Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, while Jennie remains at their retirement home. The Ciccolos have four children — Phyllis of Weymouth, Bob of Hingham, Joe of Lake Elmore VT. and Virginia — 8 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren! Congratulations to this beautiful couple!

Here's a cool fact about the gold medals given out to the winners at the 2018 Winter Olympics: If they were actually made of solid gold, each medal would have a value of nearly $27,000!

However, the medals only contain 6 grams of pure gold. The rest of the 586 gram medal is comprised of 99.9% silver. The medals have not been made of pure gold since the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm, Sweden.

Historical Diamond Facts: Some of the earliest recorded mentions of diamonds come from ancient Indian literature. Diamonds were associated with purity, cleanliness, and tied to the Hindu deity Indra – King of all Gods. The Sanskrit word for diamond is varja, which translates to “thunderbolt.” So it makes sense, that only the most brilliant, radiant diamonds would suffice.

Perhaps this ideology has made its way into modern culture since some Southeastern Asian cultures focus more on Clarity than the other 3 C’s!

JEWELRY SUPERSTITIONS: The Opal Omen

Perhaps the most popular of all jewelry superstitions, many consider opal a talisman for bad luck to all except those born in October. Some say another exception exists for opal received on special occasions. Like pearls, you should never buy opal for yourself.

However, rumor has it that opal earned its bad reputation over a century ago when quality Australian Opal began to threaten diamond commerce. Diamond traders made up falsehoods about opal to make the stone less desirable! Their efforts may have paid off since we still hear about the opal omen to this day.

This #TBT features this month's birthstone: Amethyst! This beautiful amethyst necklace belonged to the Duchess of Windsor. She & her husband the Duke of Windsor were well-known jewelry connoisseurs and icons of style in the 20th century. In fact, they are regarded as one of the great private jewelry collectors of all time. This particular piece, an amethyst necklace by Cartier, was commissioned by the Duchess in 1947.

The Cartier bib-style necklace features 27 step-cut amethysts, a large heart-shaped amethyst in the front, turquoise cabochons, and brilliant cut diamonds, all set in gold suspended from a very strong gold rope-like chain. The Duke and Duchess provided most of the gems adorning the necklace, with the exception of the turquoise. The Duchess debuted the breathtaking piece in 1953 at a gala in Versailles. She wore the amethyst bib necklace with a strapless gown to highlight its Indian-inspired style and colorful stones, masterfully set in gold. After the Duchess’ death in 1986, the necklace sold at a Sotheby’s Geneva auction in 1987 for $605,000

A few tips about caring for your pearls: 

Fine cultured pearls with lustrous nacre will last for generations if cared for properly. First and foremost, pearls are meant for frequent wear. Wearing them often enhances their luster and color. Don’t store them in a hot, airless environment. They can dry and crack. 

Cultured pearls should be kept free of perfumes, cosmetics, perspiration and dirt. It is best to follow the old adage "pearls should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off." After each wearing, wipe pearls with a damp cloth to remove any damaging chemicals.

Here's a tip for your Tuesday! If your white gold jewelry is looking less than fresh & cleaning it isn't helping - it's probably time to get it re-dipped in Rhodium plating! This treatment is initially applied to white gold jewelry to make it bright & white, but will wear down over time... especially if exposed to harsh chemicals like hand sanitizer. If you're jewelry is looking like the ring on the left, bring it in & we can give you a quote on getting your piece(s) back to looking like new!

Sober up with amethyst! Did you know that Ancient Greek mythology tells of amethyst’s powers to hinder intoxication?

The Greeks drank from goblets made of amethyst to help them stay sober. Interestingly enough, amethyst translates to amethystus, which means not intoxicated. One Grecian story explains how Dionysus, god of wine, desired a young mortal named Amethyste. She hoped to remain chaste, so she prayed for protection and was magically transformed into a white slab of quartz. Frustrated and thwarted, Dionysus poured his wine onto the quartz, staining it a deep purple hue. Thus, Amethyst was born!
