There are so many choices for long drop earrings. Depending on your preference, you can get these earrings in pearls, silver, gold, beads, semiprecious stones, rhinestones, copper, or even feathers.
There are some stones that are very difficult to polish. Only course grit or medium grit is used for one to three days when Wonderstone, which is a soft rhyolite, is tumbled. This produces nice, rounded stones which show the colors and banding well. Sandstone, calcite, onyx, limestone, glass, and obsidian also fall into the category where there may be veins in the rock that will not polish. Some types of rocks are brittle, which means that they tend to chip instead of getting polished. Other reasons for the stones to remain unpolished are process-related. If the earlier stages are rushed, then scratches are left in the rocks that the later stages cannot recover from. If the tumbler and stones are not cleaned well between stages, then the grit from a previous stage could be scratching the rocks and preventing them from polishing. If you have a mixture of harder stones and softer stones in your tumbler, only the harder stones will take a high luster polish. Best results are achieved when all the rocks in a batch have similar hardness. If a stone breaks during the later stages of tumbling, the sharp edges will scratch the other stones, so get rid of them before the final stages of polishing.
Stay away from any body jewelry where the part that you place inside your skin (barbell, banana, ring) is made of silver. All silver tarnishes when it comes in contact with body fluids, can easily harbor bacterial growth, and can contain irritating metals such as nickel. Body jewelry with a sterling silver "charm" that is connected to or dangles from the end of the steel or titanium bar is safe to wear, so long as you aren't allergic to silver jewelry. If you are allergic to silver, you should still be OK if the silver part is plated with rhodium. Just make sure that the part that is inside your body is made from a more biocompatible metal.
Shopping for antique jewelry has an added advantage. It acquaints you to the history and culture of the era to which it belongs. You would be interested to know how the fashion of wearing delicate dresses in the Georgian era favored the use of small, light jewelry. Pendants with miniature paintings of loved ones were also prevalent in the late-Georgian era. In a similar way, jewelry belonging to each era is a reflection of the changing fashions. So, with every piece of antique jewelry, you also buy memories of a long lost era.Armed security guards in jewelry have become the issue of debate in security insider circles, especially in Orange County and LOs Angeles. After many jewelry stores were robbed in the LOs Angeles and Orange County area recently phones were ringing at many security companies. Jewelry business owners want to make sure that the trauma of being robbed by armed perpetrators does not repeat itself. Many jewelry businesses today have very lax security protocols, which is alarming considering the high value merchandise they deal with.
