The Jewelry Insider

November 4, 2008

Traditionally the last Thursday in November is all about the ‘thanks’ but for most of us, Thanksgiving means something entirely different.

Martha Stewart may make it all look so easy – but hey if we had a crew of hundreds preparing the turkey ‘earlier’ and an entire ‘crafting’ unit folding the napkins into dancing swans, we might find the time to chit-chat with the in-laws or carve out home-made candle holders from old soap.

This year, for many, saying ‘thanks’ is harder than ever. Financial heave-hos-political posturing and an economic outlook that’s wobblier than the jello means finding the ‘thanks’ for the year will involve a few bottles of seriously fermented grape juice.

Our advice for enjoying a peaceful and thankful day… eat elsewhere. Buy your hosts something so stylish and sparkly that you’ll be absolved from all kitchen duties. And if all else fails, just remember – it’s a day of thanks – thanks that you’re not a turkey.

There’s a saying that ‘No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks’ so this year show-up with sparkle for the whole family. It’s a whole lot easier than preparing the pumpkin pie and chocolate souffl? and these incredible thanksgiving deals – means every single gift is under $65

Now thats something to be thankful for.

SEVEN sets of colored pearl earrings for under $50 – how about that for the perfect party favor? JCPenney is making sure everyone will be thankful for your good taste.

Golden Gifts

We all know that gold is the color of the moment.

Golden dresses, golden shoes, golden bags and layers of dazzling, long golden chain necklaces are the fashionistas picks for winter warmers – but for some, not even being bedecked in gold is enough. Gold Xmas trees, gold phones, gold chocolates, even gold greeting cards are some of the everyday items undergoing a golden makeover this winter.

Japanese jeweler, Ginza Tanaka, famed for his penchant for all things gold, has created a couple of seasonal extravaganzas (all in gold of course). First there’s a 24 karat gold greeting card featuring a “pop-up” gold Christmas tree. If the $254,000 price tag for this card doesn’t seem to bad, then you probably won’t be to worried about the postage fee – the card does weigh 6 kg.

Tanaka, never a jeweler to think “small”, is also offering a larger version of the greeting card’s pop-up tree. A 21 kg tree of gold selling for $850,000.

Much cheaper, and certainly more practical, is the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Diamond Edition mobile phone. The phone, plated with 24-karat gold, features 100 mega of on-board memory and a 2 mega-pixel camera. The price – a bargain compared to Tanaka’s trees at $3,450.

For those who are looking for something more traditional, yet still golden, what could be better than “five gold rings”. A partridge in a pear tree doesn’t always cut it and ten lords-a-leaping are rather hard to find these days, but five stunning gold rings will beat swans-a-swimming hands down.
