Pure Alluring Sunshine*




I find this shop ~so fascinating!
they were selling 'pure sunshine*'
.
24 Karat Sunshine* darlingsss...
.
... It is quite an uncertain times we live in... Perhaps time like this one should turn to jewelry with truly enduring value. In the age of the artificial, the over-hyped and the 'unreliable', there are only a few things that truly endure: pure-pure-pure 24 Karat GOLD! I'm sure you've seen how the price of gold had risen over the years! ~Well-well-well...here in Singapore or most other Asian countries, they invest/purchase & wear not the typical 18K or 14K gold jewelry... they go for the purest 24K gold! Have you ever wondered why gold jewelry is so popular and desirable, not to mention expensive? A look into the fascinating history of gold reveals how people of every culture, time period, and nation have fought wars and built fortunes based on the allure of gold... Pronounced as symbol of wealth and power since ancient times, gold still proves to be one of the most coveted metals today. Chances are the rings on our finger is marked 18K, 14K, or 10K, with the K standing for karat - the system used to describe the percentage of pure gold an item contains. Basically the higher the karat number, the higher the percentage of gold in the gold jewelry ...ooohhh I spoted a simple thick band ring that has my name on it...errr I might go back & get it, can't wait forever for a man to buy it for me! well, you know...~whahhh*
.
" Have a Golden* New Week darlingsss...
errr...any karat would just do... "

~XOXO*

Beautiful pieces! Great artistry. I don't have any gold jewelry. Maybe one day. LOL.

Right up my alley, Miss Lenorenevermore!! I love gold jewelry..sell enough of the beautiful baubles. I am finding more and more that in hard economic times, people will spend for the real deal and pass the costume pieces. Such a wise investment that will last for some time & can be passed down. Happy sunshine week to you!!!

Gigi said...

Fabulous! That shop looks like a little piece of heaven to me. xoxo

Sher said...

Same to you, dear Lenore. You are the gold ;-)

Teri said...

Ooooh, I would love some golden sunshine to hang around my neck or wrap around my finger.

Iva said...

McVal said...

LOVELY! Now I can see why my gold-tone stuff is so cheap to buy...

Phoenix said...

Now if only they could BOTTLE sunshine...I'd take it with me everywhere I go.

Jan said...

Ahh - you should have rings on your fingers !
(and bells on your toes maybe)
nah, that would be way noisy when you're bouncing on the hotel bed :)

Winnie said...

Asian jewellers are incredible. All that gold and jade everywhere!

Patty said...

I had to put my sun glasses on for this post.

Sam said...

Oooh love these!! 24k gold looks so wonderful - and I adore the way they have them displayed - so opulent and over the top! I think if I was there I would have to buy something!! Gorgeous photos - the colours are stunning! XX

Anthony said...

If only you could find a 24K gold, automated luxury toilet... You'd NEVER leave the bathroom! ;)

I say, go ahead and splurge a little! We only have ONE life, after all... Besides, you don't need a man to buy you jewelry. It's more than likely he would just get it wrong, anyway!

Anthony said...

P.S. - I was, of course, referring to the infamous TOTO toilet that you encountered not too long ago!

Diana said...

I love the first photo!

Diana said...

How stunning! I love jewelry shopping! These photos are superb!

Savvy Gal said...

for the longest time i can only wear 24k gold on my ear.

Miss K. You said...

Oh my.. my eyes are getting blinded by all that gold jewelry! I do love all gold but especially white gold- what's your take on white gold? ;)

Ela said...

You go get that ring, you deserve it girly!
My grandfather gave me a 24K ring from one of his travels...sadly, it's no longer round, LOL, I somehow managed to get the ring stuck on a door jam and yanked...since the gold is so soft it bent it up pretty badly. Luckily, the face/design of the ring was untouched.
Can't wait to see your piece of sunshine :)
