  • Lucky Charms and other St. Patty’s Day Words of Wisdom


    Lashbrook Titanium 10mm Concave Band with Beveled Edges and Leaf Pattern Green Ano Satin/Polish

    If you think about it, every holiday has some kind of jewelry affiliated with it. But St. Patrick’s Day has a closer connection than most. Why? Because jewelry associated with luck (aka “good luck charms”) represents one of the key themes of St. Patrick’s Day: luck.

    And luck is big with the Irish They have a long list of charms, superstitions and omens to make you lucky or keep bad luck at bay.

    Here are a few fun St. Patty’s Day superstitions to keep in mind, the next time you plan on bringing a banana onboard a boat! Here’s a few we found at 

    We all know it’s bad luck when a black cat crosses your path. But fortunately, the Irish have found a way to ward it off. Make a triangle with your thumbs and pointer fingers and spit (in the general direction) of the cat. FYI we don’t condone spitting at cats.

    If a hen and her chicks want to enter your house, by all means let them in! They bring good luck. If it’s a rooster, set the table, company is on its way.

    Never gift a knife, it will sever your friendship. In fact, don’t even hand someone a knife (not even to cut your corned beef), it will bring bad luck. Instead if someone asks for a knife, place it on the table near them and let them pick it up.

    Feeling sick from all that corned beef and cabbage? Well the Irish say tie a bunch of mint sprigs around your wrist to cure an upset stomach.

    If you come across a horseshoe, nail it to the door. And don’t even think about buying one or using a gifted horseshoe, it must be found spontaneously!

    Lucky enough to find a four-leaf clover? Congratulations! You’re in for some good luck gambling and racing. Furthermore, witchcraft has no power for you! But keep it to yourself. The luck only lasts so long as you don’t show anyone your clover.

    Never ask a man where he is going fishing. Just don’t. Never change a boat’s name and don’t bring a banana on board (not necessarily an Irish superstition, but very good to know nonetheless). Fishermen are an especially superstitious lot and some may go so far as to turn the boat around and drop you and your contraband fruit off on the dock.

    Best of luck to you this St. Patrick’s Day! ! ! 




  • Learn a Little about Tourmaline


    We just love these earrings! They absolutely epitomize femininity and dazzle. Seriously, what woman wouldn’t be completely captivated by these earrings? These were a product of our custom jewelry design team and a creative customer.

    Tourmaline is classified as a semi-precious stone and comes in a wide variety of colors.

    According to the Global Healing Center:

    It’s believed that no two tourmaline stones have the exact same color and it’s historically revered as a “magic” stone that is capable of protecting whoever wore it. Although it might be a stretch to say tourmaline has supernatural powers, it does have the uncommon and very special ability to generate an electric charge and emit negative ions and far infrared rays.

    Well, we think tourmaline is supernaturally beautiful regardless of its supposed power. (These earrings make a perfect holiday gift by the way! Click on the image above for more information)

    Did you know that tinsel used to be made of real silver? It’s true. It may not always look great on Christmas trees but it’s got an interesting history. Thanks to Motherboard for this:


    Tinsel was popular in this form for centuries, with a slight break in manufacturing during World W​ar I because of disruptions to the manufacturing chain. But it didn’t last. Lead, as you ma​y recall, has toxic effec​ts on the human body, from our nervous systems to our gastrointestinal tracts.

    These effects had been known for a long time, but the US didn’t start enforcing regulations on how much lead could be in commercial products until the 197​0s (lead-based paint was the first to be banned in 1971). In 1972 the US Food and Drug Administration an​nounced that tinsel made of lead could no longer be sold to consumers.

    These days, the tinsel you know (and are kind of annoyed with) is made of a synthetic compound called polyvinylchloride, or PVC, with a shiny finish. It’s cheap and durable, used in products ranging from thick housi​ng pipes to reco​rds and fake leather clothes. Some less-flexible types of PVC are recyclable, but those handfuls of sparkly plastic that you throw willy-nilly at your tree are not. Much like the Christmas spirit, tinsel ne​ver dies; instead it sits at the bottom of a landfill with the rest of your holiday glee.
