Beautiful Ruby Necklaces

Six months ago, my younger sister married her best friend in a beautiful, church ceremony. I was one of the four bridesmaids in her wedding. The bridesmaid dresses were short and black. The shoulders and backs of the dresses were made out of black lace. Because my sister’s color scheme was red and black, she decided to purchase all of her bridesmaids a gorgeous, ruby necklace to wear with their black dresses. These sterling silver necklaces contained ruby beads and crosses made out of white topaz stones. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best kinds of ruby jewelry items to buy the bridesmaids in your upcoming wedding. Enjoy!

How To Honor Your Son Or Daughter Upon High School Graduation

by Luis Cabrera

Remember when you were enrolling your little son or daughter in kindergarten? Now the years have flown by and you're facing high school graduation. Part of you is thrilled that your child is facing new experiences, while the other part of you knows that adulthood is taking your child away from home. One thing is for certain, completing graduation is a big step and honoring your child for his or her accomplishments will make your entire family happy. From a fun event to the perfect gift, here are some ideas that will help you to plan something that your graduate will always remember.

Plan An Event - Will your son or daughter want a big graduation party or will he or she prefer something small and intimate? Unless you're planning a surprise party, it would be a good idea for you to sit down with your child to find out what the best way to celebrate would be. For something small and intimate, consider reserving a private room at an elegant restaurant where just your family and your child's closest friends can celebrate. For something more elaborate, have a backyard barbecue right at your own home or rent a banquet hall for something more formal.

The Gift - Are you having trouble deciding what to give your son or daughter as a graduation gift? If so, consider giving several presents. For example, if he or she will be going away to college, luggage will be needed. Think of buying three pieces of matching luggage. In the largest suitcase, place clothes that will be needed at college. For example, if your child is going to go to college where winters are really cold, buy a high quality coat to put in the suitcase. In the middle size suitcase put some coupons for eating out. Save the smallest case for something sentimental that will remind your child of his or her graduation from high school. For example, perhaps you're ready to give your child the Rolex watch that you inherited from your own parents. Have it repaired and cleaned by a professional like Hayes Jewelers so that it will be in perfect running order and so that it will look brand new. The great thing about quality watches is that they are so classic that they will never go out of style. 

Don't forget to write a letter to your child that expresses your gratitude for the person he or she is and for your pride in his or her accomplishments.
