A planet named 55 Cancri e has been found that is twice the size of Earth, covered in diamonds & a year on the planet is the equivalent of less than a day on Earth. Cancri e is so rich in carbon that it holds at least three times the amount of diamonds that Earth does. The diamonds on this planet are said to rise to the surface extremely easily, with the inner layer of the planet containing many more diamonds.
Cancri e is a rocky planet with not much gas & almost entirely solid. The 2,150C surface is completely covered in graphite (the led in a pencil) with diamonds working their way up & pushing through. Cancri e is so hot it’s like a constant furnace, the heat builds up from Cancri A, it’s closest star located 40 light years from earth, that can often been seen with the naked eye.
55 Cancri e could never host life but is a huge step in the right direction for astronomical research that could hold a sparkling future.

It has been revealed that Jennifer Aniston & (her now fiance) Justin Theroux have got engaged. Justin sealed the deal with an enormous, yet beautiful, 8ct emerald cut diamond engagement ring at his 41st birthday party in August. A spokesperson for Justin said, ’Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.’
Details of the diamond’s three C’s (cut, clarity & colour) have not yet been revealed, but needless to say we know it’s going to be impressive. Emerald cut diamond engagement rings take a lot of research & expert diamond advice to get right because of the large table (the flat surface of the diamond) making it easier to notice flaws that will then prevent sparkle.
