    Meditation Rings -A Ring for Our Times

    Meditation Rings -A Ring for Our Times

    Feeling anxious or stressed during these times is not unusual as the world is filled with much uncertainty and fears over the Covid-19 pandemic.  Keeping ourselves as positive as we can surely helps us to cope,and this brought me to thinking about one of the most popular items at Omani Jewelry- Meditation Rings, also known as Prayer Rings or Spinning Rings. 

                                                

    Many  customers who have purchased these rings  have commented that together with the beauty of the ring, spinning the bands brought a sense of calmness and inner peace. Omani's varied selection of sterling silver rings  showcase handmade Israeli jewelry at its finest. Adorned with semi precious stones and or in combination with gold, these  spinning rings  have movable bands of varying widths and can be hammered or smooth.

    And finally, why are these rings also called Prayer Rings? The answer is simple: these handmade artisan rings are sophisticated and spiritual. So especially in these times when we are advised to live in the moment- take a breath,spin your beautiful ring and connect with yourself and all the beauty and good in the world.

    What's Special About Artisan Jewelry?

    So what is special about Artisan jewelry?

    In a nutshell, purchasing hand-crafted jewelry made by artisans offers you something unique and also contributes to the greater good.

    Let's look at the unique aspect first:

    HANDMADE ARTISAN JEWELRY FROM ISRAEL IS UNIQUE 

    Tired of seeing the same earrings, necklace, bracelet or ring in every store?  Not so with Omani Jewelry. Every piece in each artisan's collection is handpicked with artistry and uniqueness in mind.  Omani's collection of Israeli jewelry is unique as it transcends fleeting trends while often before the trend begins!

     Israeli artisans are busy creating  trends sometimes years before large businesses that sell commercially produced goods. Artisans are usually part of small businesses  and as such can afford to experiment and make what inspires them, to see whether it will gain interest. At Omani Jewelry we do the same- pushing the trends by introducing new product unique to the market. Part of this unique aspect of artisan jewelry is how handmade withstands time.

    Remember those days, when you bought something and it lasted for a very long time? Handmade items will give you years of wearing pleasure as they are made with higher quality materials than their commercial counterparts. Moreover, extra care is put in to create each piece with much attention to detail, unlike assembly-line manufacturing. 

                                           THE GREATER GOOD 

    By buying artisan jewelry, you are helping sustain smaller businesses and a more personal level of economic growth. Omani jewelry has been part of this philosophy for over 16 years- supporting and promoting Israeli artisans! A growing movement of people are seeking out unique and distinctive, hand-crafted jewelry made by committed artisans.  

     

    So what's so special about artisan jewelry? 

    You get to choose something that is true to your own style by wearing a unique, artisan creation rather than a brand.

                                               AND

    You are helping small business enjoy its own level of personal economic growth.  Omani Jewelry is very proud to be part of it!

    Omani Tips on how to care for your jewelry.

    It’s always best to take good care of your jewelry, but despite our best efforts, sometimes our jewelry loses its luster and needs a good cleaning to bring it back to life.

    Start by polishing jewelry with the interior layer of cloth.
    It is specially treated to polish your jewelry and enhance shine. Avoid over-polishing as it can remove details and potentially cause your jewelry to lose designed oxidation and patina on bronze.

    Then use the outside layer of cloth to wipe/buff the jewelry.
    Buff your jewelry using the outside layer to remove any remaining dirt or tarnish and give your jewelry a clean, shiny finish.

    For best results: Store in a sealed plastic bag and follow directions above. Do not wash. Keep this cloth away from flames.

    Regular Cleaning

    Sterling silver is a soft metal, so it can be easily scratched. When handling and cleaning your jewelry, you’ll need to take special care not to use anything too rough that will leave scratch marks.

    Use a jewelry cleaning cloth or a cloth made of 100 percent cotton to gently remove residual make up and dirt. A clean brush no stiffer than a soft baby’s toothbrush can also be used, especially in conjunction with a few drops of mild dish liquid in ½ cup of warm water.

    Another quick and easy way to clean your sterling silver jewelry is to submerge it in boiling water with baking soda and aluminum foil. Use a container in which your jewelry fits with enough room to be stirred. Start with a tablespoon of baking soda and a few half inch squares of foil. Add the boiling water and stir with a plastic or wooden utensil. If you notice a smell similar to rotten eggs, then it’s working. Make sure that the foil touches all parts of your jewelry so that the tarnish will adhere to it and not your jewelry. Once your jewelry is shiny again, rinse it with clean, cool water.

    You can use commercial jewelry cleaners or wipes to remove tarnish from your sterling silver or silver plated jewelry.  But there is an easier way!  And it uses common materials to reverse the chemical reaction that made your silver tarnish in the first place.

    Do It Yourself

    1. Line the bottom of a dish or bowl with aluminum foil.
    2. Bring water to a roaring boil (it should be enough to fill that bowl or dish).
    3. Add 1 tablespoon of baking soda per cup of water. Expect that the solution may bubble and froth a bit.
    4. Place the piece of silver jewelry in the dish, making sure it's touching the aluminum foil. This is essential for the chemical reaction to occur.
    5. Pour the solution of baking soda and boiling water into dish.
    6. Let sit for two to 10 minutes, depending on the level of tarnish.
    7. Allow it to dry ... and be amazed!

    If you're in shock and wondering how it works, here's the deal: It's actually reversing the chemical reaction that made your silver tarnish in the first place.

    How to style your jewellery for every occasion with Omani Jewellery.

    How to style your jewellery for every occasion with Omani Jewellery.

    Do you want your outfits to look perfectly put together and effortlessly stylish? Do you want to stand out from the crowd? Omani Creations Montreal is all hand made in Israel by Israeli artisans, not two pieces are alike. Wearing the right pieces can completely transform your style by adding that finishing touch of detail. Your jewellery is a reflection of our own personality and style so everyone will have different tastes, but with a few simple tips on how to style your jewellery you will be able to make every outfit look amazing. Whether you’re dressing for work, a wedding or going on a night out with the girls, here are our top tips for pairing every outfit with the right pieces from Omani Jewellery.

     

    JEWELLERY FOR EVERYDAY

    Some pieces of jewellery will go with everything you wear. These are usually sentimental pieces like wedding rings, family heirlooms or meaningful jewellery such as a delicate necklace given to you by a loved one. These pieces subtly enhance your personal style and are usually made of precious metals so they can be worn day and night. These everyday pieces of jewellery are guaranteed to suit every outfit but they should also complement your skin tone. If your skin has a cooler undertone, silver or rose gold jewellery will enhance your look whereas gold jewellery looks great with warmer undertones in the skin.

    Omani Jewellery offers many variations, we recommend going with something classic and unique such as our charm bracelet in Sterling silver, HAMMERED SILVER METAL BRACELET that also comes in gold. Our Harish-spinning ring also knows as the prayer ring and our layer of love sterling sliver earrings. Combining these handmade pieces together will give you a sense of style while still feeling laidback and casual.

     

    JEWELLERY FOR WORK

    Adding jewellery to your work outfits will give a touch of personality to your look. It’s best to stick to more understated, subtle pieces that don’t cause disruption to your colleagues or yourself. Wearing a stack of noisy bracelets can be off-putting to those around and distract you from your work. Instead of bracelets try sticking to simple and delicate necklaces, earrings and rings. If you’re in a conservative workplace wear classic, elegant jewellery. Instead of statement earrings, wear either stud earrings or small hoop earrings. In creative workplaces you can be slightly more experimental with your accessories, try layering a couple of your necklaces with an unbuttoned, oversized shirt and stacking your rings.

    We suggest pairing Omani Jewellery facets of life Swarovski earrings with our good as gold necklace. Let’s not forget the sterling silver charm bracelet with pearls for a little feminine touch.

     

    JEWELLERY FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION

    When pairing your jewellery with an outfit for a wedding or a special celebration, make sure to choose your accessories after you’ve decided on the dress you’re going to wear. This will ensure your jewellery doesn’t clash with the neckline or sleeves. If you’re opting for a dress with a high neckline, chandelier earrings will match this look perfectly. Wearing a matching bracelet or ring will complete this look.

    For dresses with low necklines, a choker necklace paired with a longer necklace will complement your look. Add a single minimal bracelet and rings for extra detail. Omani Jewellery is all about being unique and standing out of the crowd. Our Black Onyx and Sterling silver necklace is sure to make the perfect statement, along with our unique wrap bracelet in both silver ad gold, as well as our Labradorite ring and enchanted earning for added elegance.

     

     

    OUR TOP STYLING TIPS…

    • Keep your jewellery toned down when your outfit has a lot going on. Ruffles and busy prints are best paired with minimal jewellery, opt for an understated pair of earrings and a bracelet and let your clothes do the talking!
    • Earrings will frame your face!Although they’re small, earrings can add a big impact to your look as anyone that you’re talking to will notice them straight away.

     

     

    Why are gemstones so precious?

    Why are gemstones so precious?
    What makes one type of mineral more valuable, and why are gemstones so precious? Firstly, we need to state that the term "gemstone" in the strict geological science sense is used to define a mineral crystal. A mineral has to be a solid chemical compound, with a crystal lattice structure. Gemstones can be either natural or synthetic, and to be considered as precious, they have to be exceedingly rare. Diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and emeralds are precious stones.
