There are so many kinds of pendant necklaces, how is a woman to choose? They say there is something out there for everyone, and for me one of my personal favorites is this Sterling Silver CZ Heart Pendant Necklace. It's classic beautiful and most of all romantic.
The heart has long been referred to as the symbol of spiritual, emotional and moral core of a human being. The word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul and represents togetherness and eternal love. A bride would love this for her special wedding day!
Then there's the beautiful CZ's on the double hearts that represents togetherness. Cubic Zirconia (CZ), is a beautiful high quality synthetic/lab created stone which simulates a diamond at a fraction of the cost. This Sterling Silver CZ Pendant Necklace at ctjewelrydesign.com with a snake chain and lobster clasp is so affordable at $21.00, it makes it possible for you to develop a nice collection of different pendants necklaces without blowing your budget. - CT

Have you ever been curious as to what a particlar stone means or what physical or emotional healing properties it may have? Since it's May let's start here with a series of monthly birthstone tips.
The beautiful Emerald is the birthstone for May and is a symbol known for goodness.
The name Emerald means green from the Greek word smaragldus.This stone is believed to possess physical and emotional healing properties. It was a popular stone used by the Egyptian royals and was regarded as a sacred stone. It has been said to grant the wearer foresight, good fortune and is attributed with the ability to calm emotions and soothe emotional hurt.
Emeralds come in many shades of green, from very bright to a deep green. Unlike other gems, flaws found in Emeralds are actually a sign of it genuineness. The “Emerald Cut” refers to the wide rectangle face with it many sides or facets. When purchasing an Emerald check out the cuts. The exactness of the cut will affect the price of the emerald. A good cut has facets that meet proportionately. - CT

Jewelry still symbolozes love and commitment. So how do you protect and keep your jewelry like new for a lifetime? Each CT Jewelry Design is made to provide many years of enjoyment. Here are some quick care tips to protect that sparkle:
To maintain the original luster of the jewelry, we recommend wiping the pieces with a soft non-abrasive silver cloth after removing or at least once per month.
Over time sterling silver may naturally begin to develop a delicate silvery-gray patina. This is caused by oxidation and can give the piece an antique look which some may prefer.
For a bright shine, use a silver polish cloth to restore the original shine. Never use an abrasive polish as it can damage the surface.
The best way to protect sterling silver jewelry from oxidation is by keeping the piece stored in a sealed air tight plastic bag when not being worn.
Long exposure to direct sunlight can cause the color of stones to fade. Avoid storing the jewelry pieces in direct sunlight.
Chlorine can severely damage metals and gemstones, and can cause stones to become loose in settings. Please avoid wearing jewelry in chlorinated swimming pools.
Pearls can lose their luster after coming in contact with perspiration. An occasional gentle wash in lukewarm soapy water will restore their shine.
You don't need to leave your home to add a little sparkel to your jewelry collection. With quality jewelry, low prices, free US priority mail shipping, 100% satisfaction guarantee, made to order services and great customer care shopping at CT Jewelry Design is just a click away on your personal computer to help you look your best. - CT

Every woman needs a wardrobe of classic clothes for those “what should I wear today” moments. Add a few fabulous pieces of jewelry to that wardrobe and you’ll always have the right accessories to feel great.
Here are a few tips:
Earring: A must have for every woman are diamond studs to complement dressy to casual clothes. Sparkling earrings with colorful gemstones can also capture the spotlight for that special dinner party.
Bracelets: A few white or yellow gold bracelets and/or silver bracelets are great accessories. They are great for jazzing up a plain blouse or suit. Consider a pearl bracelet with a beautiful clasp.
Necklaces: Choose at least one necklace with a pendant or multiple strands to add interest to open necklines. Diamond or pearl strands never go out of style. Cubic Zirconia (CZ) which comes in all colors is also a beautiful alternative to diamonds for a fraction of the cost.
Extras: Adding a gemstone ring or a watch is always smart and eye catching.
Each season is a time of renewal, so refresh your jewelry wardrobe with all the latest trends and new classics. Most importantly choose your jewelry carefully and make it your own style. - CT
