Tiffany & Co. Turns 175
Iconic jeweler Tiffany & Co. is celebrating their 175th birthday today. The company brought a few pieces to show off at Good Morning America–a bracelet that had over 200 carats of diamonds, a diamond and sapphire necklace and beautiful diamond drop earrings for Lara Spencer and guest host Elizabeth Vargas to wear.
The GMA team joked about making a run for it with the jewels but fortunately two security guards were lurking close by to keep things under control.
Tiffany & Co. actually began as a stationary company and then got into jewelry. As much as I love a good set of monogrammed notecards, I’m glad they made the switch to the bauble business!

Google’s Kevin “Bacon Number”
Six degrees of Kevin Bacon just got an upgrade by Google. You can now type in “Bacon number” and the name of an actor and Google will tell you how closely they are linked to Kevin Bacon.
The GMA cast tried it out with actress Alexandra Wentworth and found out that her Bacon number is two. Wentworth was in the movie It’s Complicated with Meryl Streep, and Meryl Streep and Kevin Bacon were in The River Wild.
Even Wentworth’s husband and Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos was connected. George and Willie Nelson were in Anthem, Willie Nelson was in The Party’s Over with Tim Robbins, and Tim Robbins starred in Mystic River with Kevin Bacon.
San Diego Zoo’s Baby Panda
The San Diego Zoo’s precious baby panda is just starting to open his eyes, a process that can take up to three weeks.
The nameless baby will have to wait a few more weeks to get his name–it’s Chinese tradition to wait 100 days. On Monday, the zoo will begin taking name suggestions for the little critter.
