Hey guys, quick question? How many of you out there are wearing jewelry? I would guess that since you are reading a jewelry blog, that it would be quite a few of you.

Have you ever shopped at high end retail stores and watched enviously as the sales associates effortlessly gift wrapped package after package into Christmas perfection? No? Ok, so maybe that was just me. But coming from a family where my father used to descend into the basement to wrap his presents, we can only assume that power tools were involved in the process, perfect packaging was a rarity. Now, as I grew up, I became like most of America, reasonably proficient at wrapping a squarish parcel without resorting to a vise grip and table saw. However, I will admit, any odd shaped packages still got shoved in a bag, or if they were too large, my mother’s yuletide favorite, a laundry sack. Continue reading

So how much would all of this Christmas festiveness cost your true love this year? Continue reading

Move over tooth jewelry, you are no longer the strangest and possibly ickiest place on the body to put jewelry. When you think of facial jewelry, it’s pretty much covered. People pierce and put jewelry in their lips, noses, and eyebrows with astonishing regularity and even body modifiers with their cheek, chin, and forehead piercings rarely even get a second glance. So where, oh where could we bling next?
