Is It Really Raining Diamonds on Neptune or Uranus?

diamond rain

Ever hear the expression – it’s raining cats and dogs? Well, did you ever think that one day it might actually be raining diamonds somewhere in the solar system? Scientists seem to think this is a possibility!

Recently featured by The Washington Post, scientists forecast rain storms of solid diamonds on Uranus and Neptune.

By now you might be thinking – how can this be? The answer is a little complicated. But that’s why there are highly educated people in this world that study these possibilities.

Consider this your daily reminder that the solar system is even more amazing than you realized!

Here’s how it might rain diamonds:

The gems form in the hydrocarbon-rich oceans of slush that swath the gas giants’ solid cores. Scientists have long speculated that the extreme pressures in this region might split those molecules into atoms of hydrogen and carbon, the latter of which then crystallize to form diamonds. These diamonds were thought to sink like rain through the ocean until they hit the solid core.

But no one could prove that this would really work — until now. In a study published this week in the journal Nature Astrophysics, researchers say they were able to produce this “diamond rain” using fancy plastic and high-powered lasers.

“Previously, researchers could only assume that the diamonds had formed,” lead author Dominik Kraus, a physicist at the Helmholtz Dresden-Rossendorf research center in Germany, told the magazine Cosmos. “When I saw the results of this latest experiment, it was one of the best moments of my scientific career.”

Read the whole story – It rains solid diamonds on Uranus and Neptune.

Have a Mayan Wedding on 12-12-12.

Mayan wedding

Now that 2-1-12 has passed, one of the next numerical milestones will be 12-12-12, and all the worry about the end of the Mayan calendar. The question is this – will the world really end before the end of 2012? Or will there be a series of catastrophic events that will illustrate that the end is near for all of modern mankind? Well, if you believe how the media interprets the meaning behind the end of the Mayan calendar, and if you are also thinking about getting married by the time 2012 concludes, now is the time to consider a wedding that truly is once in what may be a very short lifetime. In fact, you probably should think about Belize as the wedding destination of your choice. After all, if something REALLY bad is going to happen, then you may as well go out with style. Or by having the time and wedding of your life!

Mayan wedding

December 2012 will mark the end of the 5,126 year era in the Mayan Calendar. But instead of it being a sign of mortal finality and/or destruction, it probably should be thought of as a time of renewal, rebirth, renaissance and new beginnings. In honor of this historic and spiritual moment, thirty-six adventurous, fortunate and spiritually motivated couples along with two hundred and eighteen of their closest friends and family will partake in the unique Mayan Marriage of Many wedding celebration in Belize. This grand wedding event will be staged on an ancient Maya Temple at the 3200 year old Mayan City of Cahal Pech on December 12, 2012 (that’s 12-12-12). At the same time, in five other exotic resort locations in Ambergris Caye, five additional couples will each hold their own separate full court fairytale wedding nuptials event as well.

Package for the group weddings in Cahal Pech range from $14,030 to $24,030 for the Bridal Couple (depending on their chosen hotel and other add-on options) and includes a 5-night Mini-Moon, all receptions, day tours, etc. Packages for guest couples start at $5,030 for December 9-13, 2012, with custom mini-cations also available.

While in Belize, brides, grooms and guests will be able to enjoy an exciting choice of activities that the land has to offer including zip lining, Maya massage and other healing, arts medicine trails with Maya shaman, horseback riding, Caracol and other Maya site exploration, bird watching, kayaking, cave tubing, exploring ancient caves with human remains, museums, botanical gardens, a world class zoo, repelling, spelunking, scuba diving or snorkeling around the second largest barrier reef in the world, helicopter tours, mountain biking, yoga and more.

TATU rings on


Last year, Novell Design Studio introduced a very unique line of rings created in stainless steel. These new ring styles are inspired by actual tattoo and tribal themes, and most can be special ordered in Argentium Sterling Silver, palladium or even platinum – the premium metal used for wedding rings and jewelry. TATU wedding rings are currently being featured on, an innovative wedding planning website.

TATU rings are not your father’s wedding ring! TATU is a fashion statement or even a way of life. And since sterling silver TATU rings are affordable, you can have one for literally any day of the week. But if precious metals are your style for jewelry (as it should be), a precious metal TATU ring makes a strong statement! Visit an authorized Novell retailer for more information and pricing.

Initially he started small, but in 2002, he bought a three-story, 7,500-square-foot building in Stamford, Conn. Know for their famous annual Diamond Dash promotion, Nagi Jewelers is not only a well established family business, but also proof that the American Dream can come true.

New silver wedding bands at

New wedding bands at

Authorized Novell wedding band retailer, a leading online source of men’s wedding bands, is proud to announce the introduction of their new silver wedding bands line – and just in time for Valentine’s Day! Their new silver wedding bands collection include some of Novell Design Studio‘s best selling styles, and are an affordable precious metal choice for young couples who don’t have a huge budget for their wedding bands, yet would still like bridal jewelry created from material that has intrinsic value.

Novell’s silver wedding bands are specially created with Argentium Silver, which is a non-tarnishing silver metal. Traditionally, silver jewelry’s downside has been that it needed to be cleaned frequently as it tarnished easily due to the fact that it is typically alloyed with copper. The Argentium Silver that Novell uses is alloyed with germanium to avoid this tarnishing problem.

Why choose platinum for your engagement ring? Simply put, platinum is a durable naturally white metal that ages very well. And since platinum’s price point is now very similar to gold (and white gold is not naturally white and turns yellow over time), platinum is worth the investment for engagement rings, wedding rings and jewelry.

Kansas City jewelry store Tivol adds Novell wedding bands to website.


Kansas City jewelry store – and authorized Novell wedding band retailer – Tivol now features Novell wedding bands on their website. Tivol is a relatively new customer that carries a great selection of classic designs and newer wedding band styles.

More about Tivol:

In 1910, Charles Tivol opened a jewelry shop in downtown Kansas City. Perched on a bench, he carefully crafted each piece of jewelry and set a timeless standard for enduring workmanship and style.Charles also handed down his unrelenting passion for quality. His son Harold began working in the store as a boy and now serves as chairman of the company. Under Harold’s leadership, a second store was opened in 1951 on the Country Club Plaza. Soon, it was outselling the downtown store, and the two later merged.

Nearly a century after its doors opened, Tivol‘s tradition continues with its third generation. Under the leadership of Harold’s daughter Cathy, Tivol has continued to flourish. A second location was opened in 1994 in Johnson County’s Hawthorne Plaza. Tivol added a third location in 2006 at Briarcliff Village in the heart of the Northland.

Now that the business has attained the 100-year mark, Tivol is going stronger than ever, maintaining our tradition of offering the world’s most beautiful jewelry and timepieces in a variety of price ranges.

Cute fact – Every dog who visits the Tivol Doggie Bar on the Country Club Plaza can be seen live online! See Spot. See Spot run. See Spot online via the Tivol Doggie Cam.

I have added the top wedding bands that Novell will be promoting over the next year. The latest and greatest Novell products, such as TATU wedding bands and our new bridal jewelry collection, will also be added in the near future as well.

Debuting at the 2010 JCK Show in Las Vegas – Novell’s TATU wedding bands.

As featured on

The future for wedding bands will arrive at this year’s JCK Show in Las Vegas!  Novell  will be unveiling a very original concept for wedding bands and jewelry in general – designs inspired from actual tattoo themes. Rings in the new TATU Collection are created in stainless steel or palladium, and a select few have been fashioned especially in platinum. Additional wedding band styles produced with sterling silver and black diamonds will also be available. TATU wedding bands will be offered through authorized Novell retailers over the summer.

The JCK Show is a jewelry industry-only event that will take place June 4 through June 7. Jewelry industry professionals can visit Novell at booth 5081. View other wedding bands and bridal jewelry that Novell will be featuring at the 2010 JCK Show in Las Vegas.
