I had the great pleasure of visiting the Field Museum's latest featured exhibit: The Nature of Diamonds. It was truly unbelievable. With diamonds dating back to the Renaissance and earlier up to the extravagant pieces of our time, it was a girl's heaven. I spent my day bouncing around from glass case to glass case salivating over the endless number of carats... and then... I entered the vault. This is where they kept the big showstoppers. Beautiful broaches and necklaces with thousands of diamonds adorning them and this unbelievable 128.54 carat yellow diamond by Tiffany. I'm still awe-struck.
