There will always be Hope.......

When I saw the article about this beautiful 45.52-carat blue diamond in the Los Angels times, the first thing I thought about was the movie Titantic and how I felt when Kate Winslet drop the beautiful necklace into the ocean. I'll never forget how all of the ladies in the audience gasped, the sighs, oohs and awes in unison!
There is quite a stir over the 45.52-carat blue diamond famously known as the Hope Diamond. Purchased by jeweler Harry Winston from the estate of Evalyn Walsh McLean. The diamond is being reset to mark the 50th anniversary of its donation to the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History by jeweler Harry Winston.
The House of Harry Winston has created three possible new settings, and, in conjunction with the Smithsonian Channel, is asking the American people to cast their vote for their favorite.
The voting runs through Sept. 7, and the result will be announced sometime this fall.
