Purr, Purr, Purr; who are you?; my Pussy Cat Kitten!

The cat is one of the most desirable pets. We love his meow, meow and his Purr, Purr. However, do you know that 3.000 years ago, women used to wear cats!; yes. Bastet was the goddess of family, protection and love in the ancient Egyptian religion and worship changed from being a lioness deity into being predominantly a major cat deity. Because domestic cats tend to be tender and protective of their offspring, Bastet was also regarded as a good mother, and she was sometimes depicted with numerous kittens. Consequently, a woman who wanted children sometimes wore an amulet showing the goddess with kittens, the number of which indicated her own desired number of children.

Now, you can wear as many rings as you want. By the way, how many children do you want?

The Golden retriever; man´s best friend

The Golden Retriever is a very famous and widespread pedigree breeding dog. The Golden Retriever is a large, strongly built breed with a dense, water-repellant wavy coat. As a dog with origins in pedigree breeding, and due to its historical popularity, some regional variations have emerged in the breed; therefore, the three subtypes of the Golden Retriever reflect the typical variations in dimensions and coat: the British type, the American type and the Canadian type.

This is man´s best friend and the perfect pet: kind, friendly and confident. This wonderful dog has saved his owner´s life many times and is a very good blind guide dog.

This dog is a truly retriever; we would say that he is almost retrieving gold for his master: for his loyalty, his marvelous personality, etc. He can´t speak in a thousand languages; that is his only lack.

Maharaja´s Treasure secret Jewel

Maharajas and Maharanis were the Kings and Queens rulers of ancient India and southern Asia. They were famous all over the world for their passion for jewelry. One of their biggest pieces, was the breathtaking 61.50-carat whiskey-coloured diamond, "The Eye of the Tiger", that was mounted by Cartier in a turban aigrette for the Maharaja of Nawanagar (India) in 1934. Besides, Tipu Sultan was the ruler of Mysore (south India) and artefacts made for him were decorated with tiger motifs.

Truth be told, the lovely and fiery tiger has always been in the news in India; both for killing people and other animals and also for being hunted by Maharajas, Sultans, and important soldiers of British India.

This wonderful and magical wild animal has inspired hundreds of fine jewelry designs for Queens and Maharanis. This could have been one of India´s Crown Jewels: the Tiger Ring. Its design with 3 Rubies on top and 3 emeralds behind the tiger, shows off the opulence of this unique royal life. With this ring finished in 24 K gold overlay brass and steel, we also want to support the survival of this marvelous and endangered felid by helping with his preservation.

Sun Earrings Selfie; this Summer you are Shinning

Worship of the Sun was central to ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, the Inca of South America and the Aztecs of Mexico. In religions such as Hinduism, the Sun is still considered a god and many ancient monuments were constructed such us stone megaliths accurately mark the summer or winter solstice (in Nabta Playa, Egypt; Mnajdra, Malta and at Stonehenge, England); Newgrange, a prehistoric human-built mount in Ireland, was designed to detect the winter solstice; and also one of the pyramids of Chichén Itzá in Mexico.

The Egyptians portrayed the god Ra as being carried across the sky in a solar barque, and to the Greeks, he was Helios, carried by a chariot drawn by fiery horses and in the late Roman Empire the Sun's birthday was a holiday celebrated as Sol Invictus  (Unconquered Sun).

With this Earrings this Summer you are going to glow. You will be wearing two suns in your ears; are you ready to shine more than two suns?.

May the light be with you!
