The necklaces you've been wearing might be worth more than you thought.The ring on the necklace might be a diamond, but it's not really a real diamond, and it might be wearing the wrong name.The word diamond has been used to describe the metal used to make the necklace since the mid-1800s.The phrase, coined by the American gemologist Alfred Wegener in 1903, has been around since the late 19th cent...
The first diamond earrings Tiffany and her husband David purchased from a jewelry store were the size of the size-10 iPhone.
They weren’t very fancy, but they were an exception to the trend of being more expensive for more practical purposes.
So Tiffany decided to go ahead and order a new set of earrings, one that was just the right size for her.
“It was a big decision, but it was a decision I could live with,” she says.
“I just felt like I needed something that was something that I could wear all day.”
In the meantime, she’s been wearing earrings every day.
Her new earrings are more of a novelty, but she’s also excited to wear them out for the first time in a while.
She likes how they make her feel, she says, and they also remind her that the world has changed.
“Everything has changed since I was a kid,” she adds.
“Things are so much bigger, and you have so much more freedom to be yourself.
I’m so thankful that I have that.”
Tiffany, who was raised by a single mother and spent most of her life in foster care, says her father was always there for her when she needed him most.
“There was always someone there, just to listen to what you had to say,” she recalls.
“He was just a really good person and a really nice guy.
He never made me feel like I didn’t have a voice.”
The most important thing Tiffany’s got from life, she adds, is her family.
“Every single day that I can, I want to hug my parents,” she tells us.
“That’s all I want.”
