I am a collectibles ealer but have shied away from jewelry because of the difficulty in identifying and dating pieces. This helps considerably. Oh my goodness, this jewelry is breath taking! I do watch QVC because I get my Laura Geller makeup from there but I have never watched Kirks Folly before. I am loving that twilight bracelet! I wonder if Santa still has time to get my letter? Great page filled with beautiful jewelry that would make wonderful gifts for all occasions!!

I have been a painter for over 20 years working with various mediums such as oils, watercolors, and inks. I love color! When I turned to jewelry making with metal blanks, I found myself in a dilemma. I could add color to my metal with enamel. The only problem is that enameling calls for fire and I’m nervous around fire. There’s quite a good business, for example, in buying wholesale wrapping paper, or wholesale gift boxes, then simply breaking those down into batches of 10-20-25 and selling them again to people who are looking for smaller quantities, often as wedding favors boxes.
Thanks so much MixedKreations. When I first tried this I thought they would rot too, but they definitely don’t. Glad you enjoyed the hub. Nobody does fashion like the French do! They always seem to have such a way with words. Try French words for that high-end fashion sound. As for the comment about bad customer service after ordering more than once is nonsense. I know at least 5 people that order these on a regular basis and multiple times! They have never had a problem. When I was a little girl my mom use to have jewelry parties where she sold gold. I remember her setting up all of her gold in the living room. It is so much easier now a days with technology. Thanks!

Flaunt the artist’s name in the business name! One of the most famous jewelry stores is known for wrapping its items in the little blue box. Tiffany & Co. has been in business for more than 150 years, and Audrey Hepburn immortalized the jeweler when she dressed up and munched on a croissant in front of its display window in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Buy a necklace, ring, watch or bracelet from this famous store and wait for an audible gasp when your partner sees the immediately recognizable gift wrapping.

If you have any questions about it, let me know. The lower the Karat, the stronger it will be, while higher Karats will be softer. Remember, not all markdowns are deals. I have seen some items only marked down $1, at times when there is a large inventory. Don’t rush to purchase if there is a large inventory of that item wait until the inventory and the price is lower. I was wondering if you could help me with mine. I tried to make one, but building the pieces up, made it look messy. Any advice would be great. Thank you. Who knew Cclitgirl! I was excited when I found out. It really does look good too. My favorite is dark blue wth a little glitter. It looks beautiful. I hope you can stump your friend! Thanks so much for reading and commenting! Love your ideas.

Hi Janeene – look for books or websites on the particular item you wish to research. There are countless publications tied to specific antiques and collectibles, too many to list in the article. Hone down your topic (ie, Depression Glass, Victorian Furniture, Vintage Textiles, German Porcelain, etc) and google books on the topic. You can also look for organizations like collectors clubs online. It can be a fun project. All of Great Britain use the same system to mark their sterling silver. Each item is assayed (tested) for quality, then marked with a series of 4 – 5 symbols, each in a cartouche of the same shape. The shape is used with letters to help date the item. The hallmarks will tell you if the item is sterling silver, what town it was assayed in, the date of assay and the maker’s initials. First, if you already have a consultant you can tell her you would like to join as a consultant yourself. There are several theories on where the hieroglyph was derived from, one of which is that the ankh represents the river Nile with the loop being the Nile Delta. As the river Nile truly was the lifeblood of Ancient Egypt, it would be easy to see why they might have incorporated it into the hieroglyph for eternal life and that the ankh became known as the key of life.
