What does your birthstone say about you?
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:32:26 +0000
The concept of birthstones goes back years and years and is quite popular in the 21st century. Birthstones are gemstones that accompany a birth month, each having a unique meaning and historical significance.
Garnet is a beautiful stone, mined in different colors. It signifies eternal friendship, loyalty and trust and can be a perfect gift to a friend. For those born in January you are drawn to excitement and strength. You are a possessor of a bold personality and you never back down from a challenge. Friendship, loyalty and trust are your strongest characteristics.
You my dear amethysts are one unique bird. You are the happy go lucky type and you never hide your true self from anyone. Being genuine is what you believe in and you are very lovable. Amethysts are so honest that one can even overlook their faults. They are multi-talented and can juggle multiple things at the same time.
Aquamarines will be some of the bravest people you would ever know. They are quite adventurous and have a courageous heart. Being an aquamarine, you are good at keeping all the negative energy out of your life and you have an excellent ability to find peace of mind in any situation. Aquamarines usually have a very mild and tranquilized nature.
All those born in April should feel proud to be represented by a stone that is the king of all gems. Just like diamonds, these people are both tough and sparkling. They tend to stand out in a crowd and dazzle the world with their charming personality and charms but it would be a mistake to confuse them with being fragile! Diamonds represent clarity and abundance and people are often jealous of their near perfect life.
Who doesn’t like emeralds? As an emerald you have a very easygoing nature and are at peace with yourself. You have an excellent intuition and can read people very quickly thus it is very hard to deceive an emerald. You are always pushing yourself to try something new and you strive to keep growing as a person.
Just like the stone, you are a natural. You are the kind of person who is quite happy with whom you are and are not often influenced by your peers. You always tend to follow your heart and do the right thing. Pearls always have a clear direction and know what they want to do.
Rubies love to be in charge and establish their dominance over others, whatever the case. They strive on power and influence and would move heaven and earth to get what they want especially in the matters of the heart. Of all the types they are the most goal-oriented.
Peridots hate to bind themselves to anything and are famous for being broad thinkers and often have a unique take on problems. Being a huge fan of new beginnings, they strive on change. Peridots bring vitality to relationships and they can simply turn around anything.
Being my personal favorite stone, sapphires are the seekers of truth, no matter how impossible the task is. And surprisingly they believe truth to be constantly changing and thus are always on a journey to find it. Sapphires bring clarity to things and especially relationships and are very loyal and honest to their loved ones.
People associated with opals are very optimistic and simple at heart. They are the most genuine people you will ever come across. They are open to making new friends and are very caring and loving. Being a big daydreamer they believe that anything is possible.
Being a topaz, you are a one tough cookie. Fair-mined and honest to the point of bluntness you have a clear sense of right and wrong. You are very goal oriented and know how to put things in perspective. You try to avoid drama and value your independence.
Your imagination knows no bounds. You are the creative sort and love to inspire and be inspired. You are not exactly the type to live a conventional life and somehow, it works for you. Unique and unforgettable you don’t care what the world thinks about you!
Are bangles the new bracelet?…
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 15:06:36 +0000
Fashion trends change with every season, bringing with it new designs, styles and accessories. Bangles and bracelets were once considered two very different types of wrist wear, where bracelets always created a perception of something small and delicate designed in neutral colors while bangles were thought of as flashy, multi-colored and vivid piece of jewelry. For a long time bracelets were in fashion as people went for more subtle looks but not anymore. Latest trends and fashion shows reveal that bangles are the new bracelets and we couldn’t agree more!
Bangles are extremely popular in the Asian culture, especially in India and Pakistan where no celebration is complete without colorful bangles made of glass or steel. Finding matching bangles on Eid or Holi are a must. Wedding preparations are not complete without finding the right bangles to match each dress. Older women often prefer to wear plain gold bangles and look pretty for every eye. Bangles are not only a fashion statement but have certain significance in many cultures. For example in Asian culture (especially Pakistan and India) golden bangles are worn by married women while the unmarried girls wear glass bangles. Western designers have altered the designs of bangles according to the western trends. For instance, many jewelry designer brands design bangles in diamonds or gold or platinum. Young girls prefer to wear glittery bangles in neutral colors like black, silver or bronze while some prefer bright solid colors like red, orange, yellow and pink etc.
What kind of jewelry a person wears tells a lot about their personality. Bangles represent joy, happiness, freedom etc. Even colors are of significance for instance green is associated with luck while red symbolizes energy. Even if one doesn’t believe in this kind of stuff, bangles are simply a must have to add a little color and vivacity to you outfit. Bangles can increase your splendor like nothing else. Imagine a young girl, dressed in a plain yet stylishly cut black evening gown. Her hair tied up in an elegant bun and she is wearing not one piece of jewelry, except a platinum and diamond bangle and looking breathtaking. She is a vision, a mystery, inviting admirers and yet warning them to not get too close. That one piece of jewelry changes her entire outlook, creating an aura of power, class and sophistication. What could a woman desire more for the world thrives on a mystery. So to all the ladies out there, buy yourselves some exotic looking bangles and jazz up that look of yours without having to change your entire wardrobe or spending too much money. Just buy some good old fashioned bangles and you are ready to go out and have a great time. For as they say ‘old is gold’.

From the moment we girls can walk and talk, we are fascinated by the twinkling ornaments that our mothers or our elder sisters wear and we can’t wait to grow up. However, despite our shared love for any and all sorts of jewelry, there are some particular items that are our favorite. Some people like big glittering rings, while others prefer small elegant bands. Some people like a teardrop for their earrings while others like to wear big hoops. Some ladies out there believe that a small pendent is the ultimate sign of grace and dignity, while the more daring ones go for huge chunky necklaces. Whatever, the preference, I think there are some items that every girl should have in her jewelry box.
Every girl should have a few simple, yet elegant rings for all times and occasions. For instance, a silver band with a diamond or a zircon on top, or a small cluster of stones in shape of a flower sounds like a perfect ring. Hands are one of the most prominent features and wearing beautiful rings can enhance their beauty and grace. For the more daring ones, large rings with big gems like an opal or a turquoise are a must have. Next up is an item that one should definitely have in their jewelry box; bracelets. Bracelets are the most stunning jewelry item as not only they add color and sparkle to your outfit but completely transform it. For instance, you have to go to a dinner with friends’ right after office. Well to jazz up your look from formal to something trendy and fun all you need is a bracelet with vivid colors and you’re ready! It doesn’t matter what type of bracelet you have; it can be a chunky bracelet with multi-colored stones or a simple gold or silver with diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires. For ladies who are looking for something different yet sophisticated and classy, a diamond/zircon and a sapphire bracelet is highly recommended. Exquisitely made, bangles are a necessary item in your jewelry box.
Last but not the least, let us not forget earrings. Earrings come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, colors and designs and it is completely up to the person of what type of earrings they prefer. However, every woman should have at least one pair of pearl drop and a set of diamond earrings. They are simple, yet stylish and add a certain class to your outfit. For the social butterflies, dangling earrings or otherwise known as chandeliers are must have for evening dresses and dinner parties. Suspended by a chain or a set of stones, these earrings are bound to make you the highlight of the evening. So ladies, it’s time to stock up your jewelry boxes with these three must haves; earrings, rings and bracelets. The color, design and the style doesn’t matter as long as it looks beautiful to you and makes you feel amazing, bold and a class apart.
Is Jewelry A Good Investment?

Jewelry as an investment
In times where financial and stock markets are unpredictable, people are always looking to make a sound, long term investment either as a part of their retirement plan or for their children. Most of the people have limited funds and are more inclined to invest in something that is low risk. Now we all know that real estate, stocks etc. are highly volatile and one can go from prince to a pauper if they have invested in stocks and the market collapses. Gold in form of bricks or jewelry as a form of investment is the least risky and has distinct advantages to it than other commodities.
Firstly, gold has a universal value attached to it. Due to many complex reasons involving how the world markets work the price of gold is set and not subject to a lot of fluctuation, or in technical terms the price of gold is fixed against dollar or any major currency and not floating. This allows people to invest without the fear that they might wake up the next morning and have nothing left. Although, there may be minor fluctuations over a period of time, but at the end of the day you will always get a good return on your investment. It is precisely this reason why most of the family heirlooms are in the form of jewelry. The elite and the royalty take pride in their jewels and the older and unique a piece of jewelry is, the more its value increases over time. So for instance, if your great grandmother has a ruby necklace bought during World War I and it has been in the family for generations, its value today (in 2015) will be much more than at what it was purchased for. Pieces of jewelry often have stories and events attached to them and thus these mysteries that surround the jewels are what increase its value making them an exceedingly good investment. We often see a century old piece of jewelry that once belonged to some duchess or a princess being auctioned at millions of dollars which sounds like a pretty good investment to me.
Investing in jewelry will protect you in times of inflation as gold has an intrinsic value attached to it which doesn’t fall the same way as cash does. It is a safe bet for people who have limited money to invest. Another reason why people prefer to invest in jewelry is that they can enjoy their investment at the same time. Using jewelry in no way diminishes its value over time and so you can enjoy them for a while and sell them later at the time of your choosing or keep them for your children and grandchildren. So you see it is far wiser to invest in jewels rather than stocks or currency for all the reasons mentioned above, but most importantly, it is a form of investment that can bring you both profit and pleasure.

A little history on Jewelry
For centuries, women have adorned beautiful jewelry to flaunt their beauty and grace, from the coasts of the Nile to the lands of Asia. Jewels once being an item that only the nobility could afford, centuries later became a necessity for women all around the world as a form of expressing their individuality and to outshine in the male dominant society. In present time, jewelry is not only considered as a way to enhance ones’ splendor but as a sound form of investment. It is considered one of the most precious and prized heirlooms in families especially the aristocracy and the elite and why not? The rarer a piece of jewelry is the more valuable it becomes and the person who owns such pieces becomes a mystery, an enigma for the world. The crown jewels are not only the heirlooms of the royal family but they represent power and prestige and have been in the family for decades.It is a form of investment that does not fall in monetary value while stocks and cash and property can perish over time.
Jewels have a universal value attached to it while many other things are understood, interpreted and valued differently according to the culture and the laws of the land. For instance, diamonds and gold, anywhere in the world, will be considered as expensive goods. Jewelry not only holds a monetary value but at the same time holds sentimental and artistic values to it, and most importantly a person can enjoy and flaunt their jewels while owning them. It is a beautiful way to express affection and emotions without uttering a single word. These beautiful ornaments speak volumes and volumes about their owner.
A diamond ring could be a promise of eternal love, while a ruby pendent could represent the unspoken promises of passion and devotion. Many people find it hard to express their love for someone special to them and jewelry is a perfect way to say all the things that words cannot and to leave a little piece of you behind with your loved ones. A piece of jewelry can signify many things such as a promise, a plea, an apology or your show of love. It is a gesture, a token of affection. A piece of jewelry can represent a story of a life time, contain cherished memories of the past, a reminder of a long forgotten lover; the round pendent still warm from his touch! It can evoke emotions and take you away to a different world where nothing exists but you and your treasured memories. As they say ‘Diamonds are forever!’ and they are. They truly are!
