The system has been infiltrated by clever countefeiters. Sad, but true. Mughal jewelry is a marriage of Indian intricacy and Middle Eastern elegance, uniting Indian goldwork with Middle Eastern floral designs. Heavy stonework and elaborate enamelling are two major features that distinguish Mughal jewelry from other Indian jewelry. Its base is made of gold; gold-plated silver and other metallic bases are the affordable alternatives. Large precious and semi-precious gemstones are incorporated into the jewelry pieces. Enamelling is a time-consuming process which produces a stunning floral finish on both sides of a piece. Birds, flowers and paisley are the most common designs used in this jewelry technique. In India, the enamelling process is known as meenakari and stone-setting is called jadau. Other unique forms of Mughal craftsmanship include filigree (threads or beads of gold) and thewa (gold patterns fused onto melted glass). Now If you kept your receipts, it makes this process easier and you will be credited for the original amount you paid. If not and they can’t locate your purchase in their computer, if they can’t find it , they may only offer you the lowest price the item sold for. As you already know it could be the marked-down price. So this is why keeping your receipts will be the one of the most important tips in this article. Use a ‘category search’ for jewelry, a refinement like ‘pendants’ and then sort price ‘low to high’. Skip the first couple pages and then you will find some great deals. The better things start on page 30 or so when you are under the necklace category.
Kierstin, once upon a time ago I tried the direct sales route. When Amway developed their online store, Quixtar, I went to a promotional party put on by a friend of mine. I thought it sounded promising. However, in order to gain points, I found most of the purchases were made by me and they were quite cost prohibitive to say the least. I dumped the project after a year and had the products for much longer. At least I saved some pennies there!

Hi Ivan – you can find a reputable appraiser by searching online for a local member of a professional organization like the Appraiser Association of America, the American Association of Appraisers, or the International Association of Appraisers. Members of professional associations like these have been in the business for at least five years and must follow ethical rules. An ethical appraiser will not be the person who will buy or sell your antique. Before you go to a professional, research a bit online. Lots of people think they have something that’s super old and fabulous when they do not. Appraisers can be quite expensive so you’ll want to be pretty sure you have something that’s worth the money you spend on the appraisal. I too prefer online shopping to conventional shopping. One main advantage I’ve seen with online shopping is that you get the right product of your choice. If you go to shops, you’ll end up buying with salesmen’s choice, not yours. Nice hub. Voted up as useful. I have a great time adding more and more Beautiful and Unique Jewellery and actually see my shop as an Artistic and Beautiful Passtime. The truth is that it’s important to know the worth of what you have so that if you ever want, or need to gift, sell, or insure your jewelry, you will be able to determine value. Feel free to send me some pics of your new polymer clay jewelry pieces using this creative process. Happy claying! We’re available Monday through Friday from 9AM to 7PM (Eastern), Saturday and Sunday from 10AM to 6PM (Eastern).

If you use any bead weaving techniques, I’m sure that you’ve heard of Fireline. If you haven’t, you can learn more about it I don’t use it because I prefer nylon thread, but many bead weavers swear by it. It’s a fishing line that has become widely popular as a beading thread. Do NOT get suckered into buying a small spool for $7 or more from a craft store or beading website. Even if you are looking for a small quantity so you can experiment with it before making a bigger investment, you can get a better price elsewhere. Many big-box stores such as Wal-Mart as well as sporting goods/outdoor supply stores such as Outdoor World carry Fireline in large spools. I know a number of beaders who order it from Amazon as well. I’ve linked a few Fireline products through Amazon at the end of this hub. Most places that do carry it stock a variety of thicknesses.
Birchbark Books – Owned by Louise Erdrich, a store specializing in books, art and jewelry based out of Minneapolis. This season has been a coming out of sorts for online retail. Since comScore began tracking e-commerce spending in 2001, seven individual shopping days have surpassed $1 billion in spending. Six of those days occurred this year. To date, Cyber Monday 2011 (Nov. 28) ranks as the heaviest online spending day in history at $1.25 billion. Leading off this most recent week of the holiday season, December 5, now ranks as the second heaviest spending day in history at $1.18 billion, followed by November 29 at $1.12 billion, and December 6 at $1.11 billion. Cyber Monday 2010 (Monday, November 29, 2010) rounds out the top five at $1.03 billion. Love this page, you even gave me some more ideas for mine. I thought I already knew them all, wow! Very beautiful and informative hub. Vintage jewelry is something I do find precious – it is that mystery of the history that I adore. You are right – it is the history attached to it. I really agree most women can not tell the difference with moissanite to diamond rings. They are so much the same look even the picture you show shows that. Diamond Ringsare a waste sometimes. Staying up with jewelry trends is the fun part of the job! I’d use social media as you will get a much clearer idea of what people want. You could read magazines like Vogue, etc but I think the research from social media will be more real and more accurate. Search Instagram for hashtags like #jewelry #bling etc and see what comes up. Assuming you are targeting females around 16-40, you will get some great ideas. Same goes for Pinterest. Search for jewelry and other related keywords, or browse their fashion category.
