Step inside


I found this baby ring a few weeks ago in its original box, which is always a splendid bonus. When I looked up the company name on the box I was delighted to find some old photos of the jewelry storefront as well as information about the owner.

Joseph C. Herkner and his family arrived in America from Bohemia (Czech Republic) and settled in Grand Rapids, MI in the mid 1800s. The young Herkner trained as a watchmaker and then served several years as a soldier during the Civil War. He opened his own jewelry shop in 1870 with a modest stock and a repair bench. He was a well respected figure in Grand Rapids until his death in 1914 and people in the community considered his shop to be the epitome of quality. What I would give to walk up those steps and open the doors . . .

It is pretty incredible to think that this ring was once for sale inside this shop, sitting on a counter somewhere or maybe even in the window display. Who would have guessed that nearly 100 years later it would be offered for sale again in my little virtual shop. I wonder what Mr. Herkner would think about that.

Dear fellow antique and estate jewelry afficionado,

Eleven months a year we try to amuse you with a weekly cute antique jewelry related mail. However, this time of the year we take the liberty of sending you some mails without any special picture or back-ground information on symbolism, style or era. There will be just a list of present suggestions.

But why do we send you these mails? We would like to show you in how many ways one can look at antique jewelry. Nothing dusty and old-fashioned about it. Wearing antique jewelry is making a statement of good taste! And there are so many angles on how to browse through our collection... per object, per theme, per color, per month stone, per price, per age, per etc. etc. etc. Just click the pictures and you are being offered a special collection of antique jewelry based, this week, on their theme and/or production technique.

Don't worry, these few mails (spread over three weeks) will be as much "hard marketing" as you can expect from us in a whole year. Rest assured that it will take another year before we will brag again about all those beautiful pieces of antique and estate jewelry that can be bought online from us and that it will take only about 2 or 3 working days from the moment of buying to the moment it is delivered at your doorstep.

Looks good enough to wear (er, I mean eat)


This corn varietal is called Glass Gem - and you can see why! The story of its development (over several years by a man in Oklahoma) is pretty interesting. There is a long wait-list for the seeds over at Seeds Trust, as you can imagine.

I've added several new pieces to the shop. Images are linked!
