I wore a fake engagement ring for a week while on a trip to Ireland. I was surprised by how often I looked down at my finger and had the urge to show off my ring. The whole experience made me think about the person I want to marry and whether or not I was emotionally ready to get married. I love weddings. In fact, I already have mine planned – actually two. And though I’m not getting married anytime soon and there is no ring on the horizon, I was excited for the opportunity to get a sneak peek at what wearing an engagement ring might be like. I wore a fake engagement ring for a week and the results were somewhat unexpected.

Supported by ByTiffany Hsu Jan. 8, 2019 Consumers want to know the origin of the things they buy, like the name of the farm that supplied their milk or the source of the feathers in a down jacket. But when it comes to a diamond — quite likely one of the most expensive and emotional purchases a jewelry buyer will ever make — most know next to nothing about the source of the stone. Tiffany & Company, which sold more than $500 million worth of diamond engagement rings in 2017, is hoping to change that. Beginning Wednesday, it will start a program that will provide customers the countries where their diamond was mined, and, eventually, information on where it was cut, polished and set. The move is part of … [Read more...] about You Know Your Diamond’s Cut and Carat. But Does It Have Ethical Origins?
The world got its first look at Meghan Markle’s three-stone engagement ring nearly a year ago in November 2017, and people have been fascinated with the royal diamonds ever since. Just this week, Buckingham Palace began selling a £30 ($US40 USD) replica of the engagement ring on its website. The crystal and metal replica rings are encased in a white box, which is printed with the royal couple’s initials in gold. The actual engagement ring was originally gifted to Prince Harry from Queen Elizabeth II before being given to Meghan Markle. Now, anyone can own a copy of the diamonds by purchasing the replica online. You can also get a necklace and pair of earrings inspired by Markle’s ring To match the ring, the website sells a Markle-inspired necklace for £30 ($US40), which features crystals placed in the same order of the diamonds on her ring.

I was on my way to Adelaide this morning, mainly for a meeting, and also to undertake a mini-pilgrimage to take a look at the old Holden factory at Elizabeth. I’m a nerd when it comes to industry, and I hadn’t been down that way for years. There are plenty of bloggers that sit at home in their jocks opining on everything from interstate infrastructure projects to how listed company CEOs should be doing their jobs – I do it often enough myself – but you do also need to get out there and see stuff. Fearing that Qantas Q-Streaming could be as useless as ever (it was) I picked up a book at Brisbane Airport to see me through the flight, Blue Collar Frayed by Jennifer Rayner. I’d been following Jennifer’s thoughtful work on social media for a long while, and had meant to buy a copy well before now, but you know how these things go. What I hadn’t bargained for was that in examining the marginalisation of male Australian blue collar workers, Rayner … [Read more...] about How a trip to Adelaide with a good book showed me the changing realities of working life in Australia
