How to clean your silver jewelry

To remove built-up tarnish from your silver, make a thick paste with 1/4 cup baking soda and 2 tablespoons water. Apply with a damp sponge and gently rub, rinse, and buff dry. To polish gold jewelry, cover with a light coating of baking soda, pour a bit of vinegar over it, and rinse clean.

Pearls and Gem-stones

Note: Do not use this technique with jewelry containing pearls or gem-stones, as it could damage their finish or loosen any glue. More uses for baking soda.

  Silver Rings

When you get up in the morning and choose to wear  silver ring for the day it is a very personal choice. Perhaps sometimes you feel more like jeans and t-shirt while on other days it is a dress or a suit that just “feels right”. With jewelry it is just the same: it has to feel right. Just that one can wear the same piece every day and for some it never gets old.

Jewelry speaks to us. It carries a certain vibe, an energy, a feeling, in some cases even wisdom. Gemstones and natural materials such as silver and gold all have a different vibration and influence the energy of the person wearing it.silver ring

Some of our customers comment that they haven’t chosen the ring, the ring has chosen them. This is not uncommon. Jewelry emanates a certain vibration that is palpable to the sensitive person. Shape, style and material  has to be pleasing to the eyes of the new owner of the jewelry but sometimes a piece that one never thought “one’s style” feels surprisingly good and right.

Even the finger a person wears a ring on is of importance: The index finger is correlated with self-confidence, ambition, leadership, executive ability, leadership. The middle finger with a sense of right and wrong, the law, search for truth, propriety, self-analysis and secretiveness. The ring finger represents, above all, creativity. It is creativity in artistic expression, in craftsmanship in every endeavor of life. The little finger is associated to intuition and intelligence.

Here at Vintage Treasures we have a wide variety of rings, most of them beautiful old Vintage pieces that certainly have a certain vibe and energy and history. We are delighted to help you find the right piece for you from silver to custom from simple to exotic.

 

Turquoise

What is Turquoise:

Turquoise is one of the stones we sell here at Vintage Treasures the most! Known the stone of wisdom and spiritual journeys, it is the stone of the Native Americans but was also worn for thousands of years in Egypt, ancient Persia (Iran), Tibet and China. The oldest known piece of jewelry, a turquoise bracelet, was found on the wrist of a 7000 year-old mummified Egyptian queen.

The oldest mine on the North American continent, the Cerrillos mine just south of Santa Fe, New Mexico, dates back at least 2000 years.

History:

To the Pueblo and the Navajo Native American Indians, turquoise is sacred because it takes its color from the sky, and
symbolizes the supreme power of the Creator.

Around 1920, Turquoise Jewelry became popular in western United States.

Today it’s among the most popular gemstones. Turquoise is believed to help you to better understand yourself, your ideas and emotions. It is a wonderful aid in regards to any type of analytical thinking. Modern spiritualists consider turquoise to be helpful for spiritual attunement, cleansing, protection and prosperity and a symbol of the earth and sky, of good fortune and success. Some cultures consider it a bridge between heaven and earth.

We have a wide selection of turquoise rings, ear rings and other jewelry from Native American originals to artistic contemporary pieces.
