Diamonds Can Detect Early-Stage Cancer

Diamonds Can Detect Early-Stage Cancer

Who would have thought that diamonds can be more than just “a girl’s bestfriend” or an expensive gem embedded in a fashionable jewelry. A new study has found that the gems used not only for jewelry but also for cutting, polishing, as superconductors, and more, can also be used to detect cancer tumors.

Lead study author Professor David Reilly from the University Of Sydney School Of Physics looked at how nano-scale diamonds might help detect the earliest stages of cancers. He says, “We knew nano-diamonds were of interest for delivering drugs during chemotherapy because they are largely non-toxic and non-reactive.”
 “We thought we could build on these non-toxic properties realizing that diamonds have magnetic characteristics enabling them to act as beacons in MRIs. We effectively turned a pharmaceutical problem into a physics problem,” he continued. “Having those chemicals target certain types of cancers, bind to certain types of receptors, is something that’s advanced. What we’ve done is now develop that lighthouse to image those things in an MRI, thereby actually see the cancers light up, without having to open somebody up.”

Early  Stage Cancer Diamond Detection

To make explain things simpler, the synthetic versions of diamonds can be used to detect cancer in the earliest stages through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). For this to be possible, the researchers' involved hyperpolarizing nano-diamonds. This aligns atoms inside a diamond, which produces a signal that can be detected by an MRI scanner. The hyperpolarized diamonds are attacted to chemicals that target cancer making it possible to track the movement of the diamonds as they move through the patient's body.

Furthermore, lead study author Ewa Rej notes that the team focused on hyperpolarising nano-diamonds. This is a process of aligning atoms inside the precious gem in order that they create a signal that can be detectable by an MRI scanner. “By attaching hyperpolarised diamonds to molecules targeting cancers the technique can allow tracking of the molecules’ movement in the body.”

Finally, Professor Reilly concludes, “This is a great example of how quantum physics research tackles real-world problems, in this case opening the way for us to image and target cancers long before they become life-threatening.”

Longer necklaces and bold chokersBold chokers and longer necklaces

 The long necklaces and chokers are back from the past according to what Amanda Gizzi of Jewelers of America and Amanda Tropila of the Platinum Guild International. And yes, we’ve already seen them in the recent fashion shows and runways.

"We’re seeing longer chains, especially in gold, and multiple pendants on one chain, more substantial pendants but nothing too big,” said Amanda Gizzi, Jewelers of America’s director of public relations and special events. "Look for the Y trend to resurface too, with a new emphasis on layering."

“We’re seeing more chokers lately, some metal-intensive, a lot of vintage styles,” Tropila said. “We’re still seeing long necklaces and pendants, cool charms, delicate layers, but chokers seem to be up-and-coming.”

• Body chains

Body chains

I don’t know how but I first seen this trend on the body of Beyonce, and I knew back then that it was going to be a hit!  This body jewelry makes jumpsuits, maxi dresses, and cutoff jean shorts more seductive. So who’s wearing this stuff aside from Tay, well there’s Honey B, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Brandy, and Victoria's Secret models. This style is not only seen in clubs but also in the beach. Yes, we’ve seen Christina Millian takes her statement chain to the beach, hitting the sand in a multi-color graphic string bikini and her bold two-piece with an oversize gold body chain.

Indeed, this fashion statement is a dainty and sexy move on the trendy list this year.

• One-sided earrings

The trend was a hit back in the 80’s but when the models Céline, Louis Vuitton and Isabel Marant walk down the runway with just one earring these recent fashion shows, we knew ths is going to be a trend again. According to Elle Fashion, some daring single earring you should try this fall are “Fendi's feather earring, Zara's geometric dangler, or Erickson Beamon's cuff that was paired with a double-breasted coat and strappy platforms à la Céline.”

Want some inspiration to wear this fashionable jewelry? Emma Watson, our sweetheart, is a big fan of this fashion statement. She happens to be the absolute master of the single earring trend. Look at this slideshow to get some tips on how to rock a one-stud earring.

• Ear climbers

Ear climbers

“Ears, in general, are going to continue to be important,” said Tropila. "I think you’re going to see designers expand on ear climbers in particular.”

While Gizzi said, “Ear climbers are doing fabulously, with so many different styles available. But the trick is they have to fit the ear. Every woman’s ear is shaped differently and larger cuffs don’t fit every ear.”

These ear climbers took off last year after several celebrities walked the red carpet in lobe-hugging pearls and diamonds such as Rashida Jones, Lupita Nyong’o and Sandra Bullock.

The Heart of the Ocean, the Real Story behind the Famous Fictional Necklace of Titanic

Titanic Famous FIctional Necklace

 Valentine’s may be over but I know that some of us still do marathon romantic movies on a Saturday evening and I’m sure one of the movies included in your list is Titanic. Shown in 1997, Titanic was one, if not the most, successful romantic films that hit the theatres worldwide. Written, co-produced and co-edited by James Cameron, the film tells the story of Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater, passengers of the RMS Titanic (a real ship which sank on April 15, 1912) of different social classes who fell in love each other during the ship’s ill-fated maiden voyage.

Film experts believed that aside from Cameron’s well-written romance of Jack and Rose, it was the added plot points in the film that made it perfect such as the backdrop story of “The Heart of the Ocean” or “Cœur de la Mer”, the famous fictional blue diamond necklace which theft caused the dramatic break in the main characters’ romantic relationship. The necklace was so famous that several wholesale jewelry sellers imitated its design to sell in the market.

In the film

According to the film, the diamond in the necklace was original owned by King Louis XVI of France and was then cut into a heart shape after the French Revolution. Caledon Hockley, Rose's fiancée purchased the diamond necklace as a wedding gift for her. It was also this necklace that bought Rose to the recovery ship by Brock Lovett, a treasure hunter who believes that the necklace lies within the wreck of the RMS Titanic. On the first part of the film, after his team recovered a drawing in which a nude woman is portrayed wearing the necklace, dated in the year the Titanic sank, Lovett searched for the woman who happened to be Rose. She was then invited by him to his recovery ship to tell her story about the tragic voyage in which the story started.

The real story

But did you know that there was a real love story that inspired the film and there was indeed a real necklace involved in it. According to history, the necklace was given on the ship to a Titanic passenger named Kate Florence Phillips by her married lover, Henry Samuel Morley.

Kate was a shop assistant from England, who decided to elope with Henry, who was twenty years her senior and was the owner of the shop she worked in. Leaving his wife and children, Henry together with Kate boarded the RMS Titanic as Mr. and Mrs. Marshall to America for a new beginning. However, when the ship sank on the Atlantic waters, Henry died while Kate made it off the ship and made it back to England, carrying nothing but her purse, the necklace from her dead lover and the baby in her womb.

Although Kate’s necklace did inspire the story behind “The Heart of the Ocean”, the original necklace wasn’t a blue diamond but a blue sapphire. It wasn’t heart-shaped as well unlike its fictional counterpart and was known as “The Love of the Sea.”

After the story unfolded, it was then believed that Kate and Henry’s tragic love story aboard the Titanic was the one that inspired the endless romantic tragedy of Jack and her Rose. And the necklace, well, London jewelers Asprey & Garrad using a blue cubic zirconium set in white gold for the film and costs around $10,000.
