A Simple Way to Enhance Your Outfit

Jul

If you’ve ever been interested in geology, then it’s very likely that you’ve been introduced to the beauty and unique mineral known as jasper. Jasper is essentially an impure kind of silica. The colors span a large range, and to that end, they come in red, yellow, and brown varieties. Its name essentially means a spotted or speckled stone, which is very apt, because jasper is covered with dark veins and lines against its solid color background. By virtue of its unique patterns and rich colors, it is often seen in jewelry settings.

A favorite of jewelers for many years, jasper can be used in necklaces, rings, brooches, earrings, and other various jewelry pieces. The mineral lends itself well to polishing, and it takes on an even richer and more beautiful tone when that process is applied. Admired by fashion seekers and jewelers alike, jasper earrings have become a particularly prevalent accessory to wear with evening wear or casual wear. Whatever it accompanies, these earrings are sure to enhance any outfit.

Unique Hand Jewelry

Jul

One year for my birthday, my mom gave me a beautiful gemstone watch, one like I had never seen before. I like wearing unique jewelry, so it was the perfect gift for me, and from then on it was a regular accessory in my wardrobe. One day I wore my gemstone watch to work, and my supervisor commented on it and said it was beautiful. Later that same evening, I was out at a restaurant with a couple friends, and the waiter commented on my watch and even brought me a free dessert!
When a couple weeks passed, I noticed that my friends who were at dinner with me that night had gemstone watches that were similar to mine! I called them all copycats of course, but with the success I had, I could seldom blame them for wanting to have their own. buy from our store on ali express

Watches Are No Longer for Telling Time

Jul
29

There’s nothing quite as convenient as always having the time right at your fingertips, which is why watches have remained such a popular fashion accessory for so long. But with the huge increase in the number of cell phones, a lot of people have chosen to take the watch off and check the time, instead, on the phone. For this reason, the tried and true functional watch has essentially come and gone. It had its heyday, but now when people choose to wear a watch, it’s because they think the look of the watch adds something to their outfit.

This is why unique watches are becoming so much more common. While it used to be difficult to find a colorful or different watch, this is now the norm. With faces that are bright colors or contain an alabaster inlay, these watches sport unique face shapes and interesting bands. In this way, watches have become increasingly more like bracelets. And the emphasis has definitely shifted from telling time to offering aesthetic appeal. It’s also not uncommon to see people sporting watches with dead batteries simply for the look of the watch!

custom-watchesWhen selecting a fashionable timepiece, the watch face is only one of several important criteria. It’s easy to overlook the stylish potential inherent in the watch band. Bands can be composed from any number of semiprecious gems and stones. They should be matched with a watch face that complements the band without overpowering it. For example, if you choose a band with sizeable stones, make sure the face is big enough to compensate.

Custom watches present people with a unique opportunity to mix and match different bands and faces. There’s nothing to prevent you from swapping bands from one day to the next while still maintaining the use of a familiar watch face. Some women like to wear a different band for each day of the week, and others prefer to adapt their watch-wearing habits according to the day’s outfit.

The Significance of the Rosary

Last year I visited a convent just outside of Spokane, WA and had the opportunity to spend the afternoon with a few nuns. Admittedly, I know little about the Catholic faith and the various prayers and rites that the religion practices. One item that I had seen before but didn’t understand the significance of until I went there was the rosary.

Rosaries are a set of prayer beads that are used with an accompanying devotional prayer. The beads are used to count the amount of Hail Mary’s and other prayers that are recited as part of the meditation practice. The custom was established in the 16th century by Pope St. Pius V.

Every year is represented by an animal, which signifies how people born that year are perceived and present themselves. Each of the animals has a corresponding element, such as wood, fire and metal, as well as a Yin Yang Direction.

Although its origins are in China, this use of the zodiac is recognized by cultures around the world. It is easy to look up birthdates online to see what animal you are under. There are many ways to display your animal, including Chinese zodiac pendants, necklaces and charms.

The Many Uses And Forms Of Quartz

Jul
29

Quartz is a well known mineral to geologists and the general public by virtue of its common use in jewelry. On one hand, geologists know it as the second most abundant mineral present in the Earth’s crust—beaten only by feldspar. A geologist might also describe it as composed primarily of silica, or they might simply label it as a seven on the Mohs scale of hardness. But all of these properties are generally lost to the public. Instead, the public knows quartz as the main component of many reasonably priced jewelry sets.

Perfect for necklaces, earrings, or bracelets, quartz comes in a variety of colors. There is one common form of quartz, which is clear, but it also appears in purple (amethyst), yellow (citrine), milky white, and many more varieties. Another common and popular form is rose quartz, which is pink in color and most often seen in a rose quartz necklace or rose quartz figurine. No matter which color of quartz you find most appealing, the mineral always offers jewelry and other items an element of beauty

The Deep Green of Puget Sound

Jul

I’ve always fancied the various colors and shades of green, whether emerald, chartreuse, or the sea green of the Puget Sound.  I suppose its coincidence that I came to live in the Pacific Northwest where the sea is green all the time.  I can recall mornings looking out onto the Puget Sound, seeing the dawn peek over the islands on the horizon, and reflect against the green sheen of the water.  It’s a wonderful feeling, because of all the other places I’ve visited where the ocean met the land, the Puget Sound is the only place where the water isn’t just a different shade of blue.

Despite persistent comments from friends and family about my green obsession, I drive a forest green car, live in a light green house, and I just adore my Emerald Isle beaded necklace.  I can’t help it, I just love the color green!  Even though the Pacific Northwest is now my home, when I lived in the Midwest where there were no oceans for a thousand miles, I often thought of swimming in a green sea

The Many Uses And Forms Of Quartz

If you’re interested in all things jewelry, there is a huge selection of books that put jewelry at the forefront. Of particular interest to the jewelry aficionado would be “Elizabeth Taylor: My Love Affair with Jewelry.” This book details Taylor’s extensive and impressive jewelry collection. This ideal coffee table book contains beautifully shot images of Taylor wearing her jewelry as well as standalone shots of some of the more stunning pieces.

Taylor, an avid collector of some of the world’s most famous gems and jewelry pieces, also recounts exactly how she obtained these well known pieces. While the book focuses on these exotic and expensive pieces, Taylor was noted for her ability to transform everyday items into something extraordinary. Just like her character in “Gone with the Wind,” who was able to pull off a dress made of drapes, Taylor could wear any number of handmade necklaces and transform them into something greater than themselves. This skill was made evident throughout the pictorial exploration of her jewelry collection.

Adjusting Your Necklace to the Desired Length

Jul

When you purchase a necklace, there’s nothing more important than the length of that necklace. If it doesn’t fall in a convenient place, the beauty and aesthetic of the necklace can be completely destroyed. After all, if it’s too long, it can often slip underneath the neckline of a shirt, and this completely obscures the pendant itself. If it’s too short, it can be uncomfortable, and this often means the wearer will eventually discard the necklace.

This is why so many people turn to beaded necklaces. These can usually be adjusted with a few simple jewelry tools and a little bit of know how. If it’s too long, simply remove a small section of the beads from the strand and re-adhere the jump rings. If you want to make these kinds of at-home jewelry adjustments, all you’ll need is a pair of needle nose pliers and the confidence that you won’t irreparably break the necklace!
