People have always been attracted to bright shiny things, animals too. Jewels are among some of the brightest and shiniest in the world. People have fought over jewels, created countries over jewels, and marked how wealthy their kingdoms were by them. The largest diamond in the world is the Golden Jubilee Diamond at 545.67 carats, compared to the famous Hope Diamond which is 45.52 carats. But diamonds are only one type of jewel, there are rubies, emeralds, topaz, and on and on and on. Jewels are usually great investments too, growing in value or at least keeping their value over time.
How to celebrate – List as many jewels as you can. Figure out which is your favorite jewel. Listen to the singer, Jewel.
