Jewelry Advice to Help You Find the Right Piece
The right accessories can make or break an outfit. When wearing jewelry, you should carefully select the pieces you use to complete your look. But how do you know what jewelry you should be wearing? Here are a few tips that will help you select the perfect jewelry for any occasion.
When dealing with precious and fragile stone jewelry, take them to get professionally cleaned. This is much better than scratching or destroying them yourself with regular jewelry cleaners. Even the jewelry cloths may be too much for some stones. Make sure though that they are not cleaned too often as this can be very counterproductive and actually weaken the stones.
When looking to invest in jewelry containing sapphires, opals or rubies make sure that you understand what lab created means. Lab created gemstones are grown in a laboratory using scientific means. Jewelry that you see labeled as lab created such as sapphire has never seen Mother Nature. If you are looking for natural gemstones, you may be paying a higher price and spend significant time looking for a vendor outside of your local mall.
When buying jewelry, make sure that you don't just rely on really prestigious name brands. This can generally lead to you paying 80% more than that of another popular jewelry retailer. Most of the non-prestigious jewelry retailers, also offer very nice holiday and yearly discounts, so it's an overall better deal to shop with them.
Jewelry can take an outfit from ordinary to stunning, but it's important to select your jewelry carefully. A little jewelry goes a long way, and the wrong piece can clash with an otherwise stylish ensemble. As you decide what jewelry you should wear, keep the advice in this article in mind. It will ensure that your jewelry makes the fashion statement you want it to make.

    A truly excellent resource, August 19, 2015

    This review is from: The Dead Sea Scrolls: A New Translation (Paperback)
    I wan’t sure what to expect from this translation of the Qumran scrolls (I had not read any earlier translations). The introduction is excellent, clearly explaning to readers what to expect – and not expect – from the scrolls, as well as some tremendously helpful background on the scrolls themselves: how they were written, the languages used, and some broad information about their origins and the site at which they were found. This primer gave perspective and clarity before getting to the scrolls themselves.

    Before each scroll is presented, there is a brief introduction. While any sort of interpretation will have its bias, I found no clear agenda in these introductions – rather, they too helped make some sense of the documents and shed some light on the controversey (where there was some) and differences of opinions (when there was) about the meaning or significance of the scroll.

    Taken as a whole, this is a tremendous resource, the scholarship and information presented along with the documents themselves are helpful and accessable to the non-specialist.

    Regardless of your starting-point: Christian, Judaic, or Secular; you will appreciate the objective treatment of the scrolls by these three scholars. I personally was interested in the Qumran-authored scrolls that would give me insight into the community itself.
    I read the following sections:

    Introduction pp. 1-38
    This introduction gives the reader a close look at the 200 year span from 100 BCE to 100 CE; a great exposition of the Hasmonean and Herodian dynasties. Absolutely essential material.

    Damascus scroll pp. 49-59

    EXHORTATION SECTION: This material introduces us to the “man-of-mockery” & the “teacher-of-righteousness”, which illustrates the underlying convictions that guided the commune.

    RULES OF CONDUCT SECTION: very informative for understanding the early Judaic rules of the Sabbath. There are additional practical rules in the section pp. 70-84.

    Habakkuk scroll pp. 114-124
    Extremely important for understanding the sect. Through re-interpreting the 6th century BCE document of Scripture; especially the Nebuchadnezzar threat, and applying it to their own threatened relationship to queen Salome’s preference for Pharisee governship of the temple.

    Charter scroll pp. 123-133
    A fully-recovered scroll that was not in fragments. It gives us an excellent look “inside” Qumran and is essential reading. It also gives a look at their “angel-theology” & “rite-of-initiation”

    Nahum scroll of cave four pp. 215-225
    Considered by the authors as the “key” scroll for understanding the community at Qumran. You’ll do best to read this section, with your bible open to Nahum. The references are specific. It, of course concludes with an enlarged “judgment” section.

    Today there are many Dead Sea scroll offerings and It could get difficult selecting one that treats the scrolls objectively. My HONEST IMPRESSION is that this volume is very objective and fair to the material researched. I strongly recommend it. You will be enriched by the journey.
    5 stars for not jumping to the overly-simplistic Essene theory; and for giving us honest in-depth scholarship.
