Smart Tips for Jewelry Shoppers with Metal Allergies

5/31/14


If you have metal allergies, you already know how important it is to be careful when buying jewelry. Maybe you’ve never heard of metal allergies, but you sometimes get a rash from wearing your favorite necklace. If so, this article is for you. We’ll briefly describe what metal allergies are and recommend some strategies for beating them like koa rings and higher-karat gold jewelry.

Metal Allergies Simplified

Some people are born with them, and some develop them later in life, but metal allergies are always unpleasant. The symptoms affect the areas of skin that come into contact with the metal of the jewelry and usually take the form of red, swollen, or itchy skin.  More severe cases may result in dry or cracked skin or even blisters. High nickel content is the chief cause of metal allergies, although copper and cobalt may trigger allergic reactions in some individuals. Some people believe themselves to be allergic to gold or silver, but these cases are actually very rare. Rather, most people are allergic to an alloy metal that is blended (alloyed) with the gold and silver in the manufacturing process.
Hypoallergenic Solutions
Some hypoallergenic materials for fine jewelry include: platinum, palladium, argentium sterling silver (where argentium rather than copper is alloyed with sterling silver—bonus: it’s also more tarnish resistant) and higher-karat (over 14) gold. Other, less costly hypoallergenic options are titanium and ceramic and tungsten.

Eco-Friendly Koa
If your tastes run to the exotic and things more sustainable and eco-friendly, consider natural Hawaiian koa wood jewelry. Completely hypoallergenic and normally mated to other hypoallergenic materials like titanium, koa wood is a beautiful material long used by native Hawaiians in the manufacture of traditional canoes and paddles and weapons such as spears— now considered pre-industrial art. The wood has a naturally-diverse grain variety and an amazing color range. 

When handcrafted into jewelry, the results are often stunning. You can always find a great selection of genuine koa wood jewelry and more at Altin Place. They also offer the finest rolex repair available. Their true CW-21 Certified Watchmakers use only authentic factory parts and offer impeccable service with very attractive pricing.

Here's one of my past due post (emphasize on the word past). I've been out of the coverage area for a long time now when it's about #ootd post, so let me take this time to catch up. Let's start it up with a plain white long sleeves top paired with a printed skirt will never bring you down, I guess. I'm in love with the floral details of my skirt, it's quite irresistible. Anything you want to add? (Teehee) And to complete the look I just slip on my Light Apricot Pumps and I'm ready to leave. ;)

Stuart Weitzman’s Spring/Summer 2014 | Kate Moss Channels Sun-Kissed Sensuality


MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Elegance undone, imbued with unmistakable sex appeal, inspired by the feeling of freedom and the warmth of the sun. Kate Moss strips down, literally and figuratively, in Stuart Weitzman’s Spring 2014 ad campaign to reveal the definitive essence of effortless summer style. Photographed again by Mario Testino, in keeping with what is now an iconic visual vocabulary, the campaign invokes a sun-kissed and sensual energy, hinting at long, languid days in St. Tropez, with luxury footwear that seduce from day to night.

Minimal make-up, wet hair and barely-there cover-ups enhance this laid-back, luxe Bohemian look. It provides a glimpse of the supermodel at her most beautiful. Sublime simplicity.

In the world of Stuart Weitzman, “sexy” means being comfortable and confident in your own skin, and the campaign captures this essence in a relaxed, effortless, chic way while clearly showcasing the new season’s essential silhouettes.

So let's take a peek on the said SS 2014 Collection, here are some of the product shots:

Roaming Around

5/7/14


Just the sound of the wind and waves of the ocean are with me while roaming around this place, my friends are afar taking selfies and groupies. Luckily, one of my girlfriend took this stolen shot and I instantly lerved it! This photo was taken at Bangui in Ilocos Norte, we stopped here for a couple of minutes just to admire the view and take a closer look of the Bangui windmills. Here are some trivia about those windmills:
"The windmills are considered as Southeast Asia’s biggest wind turbines.They are located in Ilocos Norte are 20 beautiful windmills or wind turbines which resemble giant electric fans. Each wind turbine has the capacity to generate electricity up to a maximum of 1.65 Megawatts for a total of 24.75 Megawatts. The 20 turbines are lined up along an arc manner following the shoreline of Bangui Bay facing the West Philippine Sea at the northwest tip of Luzon island." Source: philippinetraveldestinations
