Jewelry Wholesale Repair
If you make jewelry wholesale, then you definitely
need to know how to make repairs to the jewelry
that you sale. If you can offer your clients free or
discounted repairs, you will find that you have
better customer relations. Also, you need to have
the ability to guarantee your pieces and offer free
repairs for a specified period of time after the sale.
This is just good business – and it will set you
apart from many of your competitors.
If you’ve made the jewelry, you probably already
know how to repair it. The repair that is needed is
probably the simple replacement of a piece on the
jewelry, such as a clasp or replacing a stone that
has come lose. This type of work can usually be
done quickly, and at very little expense.
If you don’t make the jewelry yourself, you still need
to offer free repairs for a specified period of time.
Again, this is just good business. In this case, you
need to learn some jewelry repair, and you need to
purchase some jewelry making or jewelry repair
tools. These tools are very small, and they were
specifically designed to make or repair jewelry. For
the most part, these tools are very inexpensive.
One piece of equipment that you will need is a
magnifying glass that stands on its own, allowing
you to use both of your hands. You also need very
good lighting that can be pointed directly onto the
jewelry that you are repairing. Both of these are
essential if you want to do a good job, and avoid
eye strain at the same time.
You will need some jewelry making supplies as
well, such as extra clasps, chains, and possibly
even gemstones. Of course, you don’t want to
keep too much of this on hand, as you may never
use any of it…so use your best judgment here.
Before you rush out and purchase a book or course
on jewelry making and repair, find out if the
company that you order the jewelry wholesale from
in the first place has any guarantees. If so, you
don’t need to learn anything. Simply have your
customer ship the jewelry back to you, or directly
to the company, and they should take care of the
repairs. However, follow up for your customer –
don’t leave the customer to deal with the wholesale
company on their own – that is bad business! If the
jewelry wholesale company doesn’t treat your
customer right, it will reflect on you!

How To Make The Best Investment On An Heirloom Jewelry Peice
A gift of jewelry is a very personal and potentially, costly gesture that can communicate a lifetime of sentiment. Whether you are preparing to shop for yourself or someone else, the information found in this handpicked selection of jewelry tips and tricks, is sure to help you make a more informed purchase.
If you are purchasing jewelry for a significant other, keep in mind the status of your relationship. A gift of jewelry may signify a change in the seriousness of your relationship that you are not ready for yet. Purchase a piece that is indicative of your current status with your boyfriend or girlfriend.
When you walk into a jewelry shop you are immediately approached by a salesperson. Do not be afraid to ask for a second to talk to your partner about this important financial decision. Take a few steps away from the glass and discuss they options without the salesperson whispering in your ear. Make sure that it is the decision you want to make.
There are many types of counterfeit pieces of jewelry. Always know how to spot a fake from the real thing. This could potentially save you a lot of money. Never buy something from the street and use a reputable dealer. You will save money and won’t have to worry about where it came from.
Deep, rich blue sapphires are commonly known as the birthstone for those born in September. Their dark, mysterious coloring is often thought to have protective powers over anyone who wears the gem in their rings, bracelets, or brooches. Blue sapphire nicely complements purples and deep scarlet accents and looks beautiful with all settings, but especially platinum or silver.
When buying jewelry for someone you love, find out what they’re favorite color is. Some people don’t like gold, or don’t like silver, or maybe they love the combination of red and gold. Look at the jewelry the person already wears, find out their favorite color, then combine the two!
When it comes to taking care of your jewelry, be sure that you take it off before using any sort of personal care products. This is important because items such as hair gel, hand lotion, and shaving cream can cause damage to your jewelry. This may either be permanent damage, or time consuming temporary disfigurement.
Buying used jewelry can be a great way to expand your options without spending a lot of money. Look for estate sales or yard sales. Depending on where you live, prices may be lower than antique stores (which use the name “antique” to charge a bit more). Browsing in person can be a fun way to find things you might not have thought to go looking for.
Educating yourself on the different types, styles, and price points available in the jewelry market, can help you to avoid a costly misstep. The advice in this article will make it easier for you to find the best piece of jewelry from the best seller, and of course, at only the very best price available.

Discover Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Squaw Valley And Napa Valley
The Sierra Nevada Mountain Range serves as a beautiful backdrop to a spectacular region known for its natural beauty and year round activities.
Lake Tahoe is 22 miles long and 12 miles wide. Lake Tahoe has 72 miles of shoreline, making it the largest alpine lake in North America. The sun shines for three quarters of the year and the water in the lake is so pure that it is 99.7 percent clear! The 72 mile drive along the shores of Lake Tahoe is spectacular. It is listed as one of the most beautiful drives in the USA. In the winter months, the Lake Tahoe region becomes the largest concentration of ski resorts in North America. There are 19 ski resorts including terrain to challenge at all levels, and other winter pursuits such as sledding and snowmobiling.
Yosemite has become one of the ‘must sees’ for visitors to California. The rarefied mountain atmosphere of California’s Western Sierra is enhanced by the stunning scenic vistas of this truly unique part of the world. Yosemite is famous for its granite monoliths such as El Capitan, spectacular waterfalls and vast wilderness. Its scenic features include alpine wilderness, giant sequoia tree groves and the Yosemite Valley itself. The discovery of one tiny gold nugget set off the great California Gold Rush of 1849. You can still pan for gold. Experience what it was like to travel in the old days on a paddle steamer cruise, a steam train, or a Wells Fargo stagecoach. Discover quaint museums, tour a mine, explore caverns, taste your way through farm trails, or try white water rafting on some of the best rivers in the west.
The Squaw Valley is one of the top ski resorts in North America, and is world renowned. Squaw Valley resort hosted the Olympic Winter Games in 1960. There is a large choice of activities to do here, including skiing and snowboarding.
The Napa Valley is less than one hour’s drive north of San Francisco. The rolling hills and sun drenched valleys of Northern California’s wine country have welcomed visitors since before the Gold Rush. The Napa Valley produces some of the finest wines enjoyed world over. Even if it did not, it would still be considered the jewel in the crown of North California. Kissed with bay fog at the valley’s southern tip which borders the San Pablo Bay and continuing 30 miles north to the base of Mt St Helena, the valley ranges from 1 to 5 miles wide, and is protected by low mountains on the east and west. It is surrounded with acre after acre of world renowned vineyards!
Is The Internet Gold Rush Over? Not At All!
Remember back in the late 1990s when everyone talked about the Internet Gold Rush? Those were the days when you could snap up a great dot-com domain name, put your site on it, and earn thousands almost over night.
Others simply purchased these in-demand domain names, then quickly resold them for thousands, even millions of dollars. Today most people would tell you that the gold rush is over. But in this case, most people are wrong. While we have a massive 60 million domain names and web sites online right now, industry experts expect a whopping 500 million sites online within 10 years.
Yes, the early days of the Internet might have been exciting, but the REAL action is going on right now. As more and more people worldwide are centering big parts of their lives around the Net, even more are getting their own web presence.
Whereas the only people with web sites used to be online marketers, book sellers, and the like, now EVERY little business up and down your street has a site. Chances are your plumber, accountant, kid’s dance teacher, and neighborhood sports team all have at least one web site if not more!
And keep in mind every single one of those domain names needs hosting. While people might spend to registering a domain name, they’ll pay at least that much each and EVERY month for hosting, email services, and more.
On average, a site stays on the Net for several years and many are now completing their first decade of continuous operation. Think of that from the standpoint of the Internet service provider, and each of those sites represents tens of thousands of dollars in non-stop income.
There are many hosting services that started out in a spare bedroom in the late 90s and today pull in MILLIONS per month in domain registration and hosting fees. That’s right, I said MILLIONS!
One of the factors that is putting real zeal in the online movement these days are the many wonderful domain names that are still available. I’m not talking about .com, .net, and .org, which are largely used up. I’m referring to .ws. This new domain type is well known and regarded by the public, yet most desirable domains are still available.
That killer domain you missed a few years ago is STILL available with .ws.
So don’t tell me the Gold Rush is over. It’s not even close to being over. Get online and IN line right now to earn your share of the continuing and expanding profits.
Must See Bangkok Temples
No visit to Bangkok is complete without visiting the temples in the city. The temples, or wats, are all over and the main temples can be seen in a day or two.
You can either plan your own trip or check in the lobby of your hotel and sign up for a ½ or full day trip. There are 5 temples that are definite “must see”.
Wat Arun is the temple of the dawn. It is located on the Chao Phraya River. As the name indicates, it is ideal to visit first thing in the morning as the sun rises. This way you will see the sun bounce off the walls of the temple with a pearly iridescence.
Wat Phra Kaew, or the temple of the Emerald Buddha, is in the heart of Bangkok, at the Royal Palace. Despite the name, the statue is really made of jade and is adorned in golden garments. There are three sets of gold clothing that are changed according to the seasons.
Like all the temples, you should dress appropriately. For the men, this means slacks and a collar shirt. For the ladies, wear a dress and cover as much skin as possible. If you are improperly dressed, you will either be turned away or be offered to rent some clothes.
Another temple to visit is Wat Pho. This is the temple of the Reclining Buddha. This is the oldest temple in Bangkok and houses over 1,000 images of Buddha. The Reclining Buddha is 46 meters long, plated in gold, with inlaid mother of pearl on his eyes and soles of his feet.
Next is Wat Benchamabophit. This is a beautiful marble temple built in 1899. Inside the Ordination Hall (Ubosot) is a Sukhothai-style Buddha statue named Phra Buddhajinaraja, cast in 1920 after the original located in Wat Mahathat in Phitsanulok. The ashes of King Chulalongkorn are buried beneath the statue. In the gallery surrounding the ordination hall are 52 Buddha statues, collected by Prince Damrong Rajanubhab for his king.
Lastly, is Wat Tramit, the Golden Buddha. This is a fascinating story and a temple you have to see. You need to read the history and learn how the Thai people hid this Buddha in clay to keep the Burmese from taking it and melting down the gold for war. It went undiscovered until an accident chipped away some of the clay to reveal part of the 5 tons of gold. No guards in sight as no one would dare steal it.
Whether you are religious or not, visiting the temples in Bangkok or anywhere else in Thailand is something you should do.
