Monday, August 31st, 2009

More and more people are tapping on the high speed of broadband to make purchases online for items such as jewelry, cars, books, watches, etc. Here are things to consider while you are doing jewelry shopping online .

1. Before you buy anything from them, you will first need to ensure their credibility and reputation. Visit their websites and check whether they have their company addresses and phone numbers listed. On the Internet, it is very common to have affiliates selling jewelry for a jewelry company. These affiliates may put up their own sites and showcase the merchants line of products. When you click on the link on the affiliate site, you will be directed to the jewelry company’s website, which is where you should look for addresses and phone numbers.

2. Take your time and browse through the Internet to look for the best choice of jewelry for you and your recipient. There are tons of websites offering all kinds of jewelry. There are sites which are interactive whereby you can see actual sizes of jewelry and play around with the different cuts, clarity levels, sizes, etc.

4. Choose the most competitive price. Prices of jewelry on the Internet are very competitive, and online merchants usually can offer very low prices as they have lesser overheads to cover.

Knowledge About The Meaning of Pearls

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Eastern cultures believe that pearls symbolize purity and spiritual transformation. Simply wearing a pearl reminds the wearer to be honest, pure, wise, and to walk with the utmost dignity. Different colors of pearls bear different meanings. As expected, white pearls symbolize purity, innocence, faith, and honesty. Gold or black pearls symbolize prosperity and riches. Rose or pink pearls work well with the heart Chakra, while all pearls work with the solar plexus Chakra, beneficial for digestion and immunity.

Just like other gemstones, pearls are given to a single month as a birthstone. June is the month of the pearl and many women and men born in the month of June proudly display their pearls to honor this fact. The birthstone chart was first established in the 16th Century, when it was believed fair favor and good luck would fall upon the wearer of their birthstone.

In Christianity, St. Augustine deemed the pearl to be a symbol of Jesus Christ, after evaluating a passage of Biblical text that gives each of the twelve apostles a specific gemstone in their honor. There are actually several passages in the Bible that refer to pearls, the most well known one an allegory about the “pearly gates” of heaven and “casting pearls before swine.”

The Japanese have always held pearls in high esteem, and often associate good luck to those to wear the round beauties. It should be noted that the Japanese only hold meaning for the salt water variety of the pearl, since the round salt water pearls are native to the archipelago chain and have made the island native quite popular due to the innovations of pearl harvesting companies like Mikimoto.

Pearls have been the most popular accessories with bridal wear historically and still continue to be a strong favorite today. The innocence and beauty symbolized by the pearl is also symbolized by the bride, so the match is perfect. From the traditional princess length pearl necklace to a stunning pendant, earrings, or bracelet mixing pearls with other precious gemstones, pearls are a fast favorite for weddings. Even many bridal gowns, veils, and headpieces are adorned with pearls to create a stunningly elegant effect.
