Proposals, unusual discoveries, and a hurricane: What the media have been saying about diamonds and jewelry this week.
Love is in the air
On the beach? At a family dinner? No, this guy picked an unusual venue for a wedding proposal.
Extremely unusual discovery
An amateur metal detectorist hit pay dirt while exploring the Norwegian island of Rennesøy when he found a collection of 1,500-year-old gold jewelry.
In the most recent episode of Antiques Roadshow, a ring found inside a sock was revealed to be worth around GBP 20,000 ($24,973). You can see the guests’ reaction in this video.
Another superb discovery, this time by a seven-year-old girl, was a 2.95-carat diamond she found while digging in an Arkansas park on her birthday.
Jewelry art helps wildlife
Great news to end the week: When the Sanibel Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife in Florida needed help after Hurricane Ian, this jeweler stepped up.
