About Gold Jewelry
Gold Purity

The purity of gold is measured in karats. Pure gold measures 24 karats but is too soft in this state to be used effectively in jewelry. So it is alloyed with other metals–silver, copper, nickel, and zinc–to increase its strength and durability. Common measurements once the alloy is added are 18 karat (75% gold), 14 karat (58%), and 10 karat (47.7%). In the United States, the legal karat limit for the metal to still be considered gold is 10 karats. A higher karat measurement in gold content indicates a greater value of the jewelry piece. Gold jewelry should always be stamped with the karat mark, either 18k, 750 (European marking for 18k), 14k, 585 (European marking for 14k), or 10k. In addition, to assure its quality, the piece should be stamped with the manufacturer’s trademark or country of origin.

Gold Color

The color of gold may vary based off of the type of metal alloy included and the percentage of the metal alloy used. Most commonly, gold is available in yellow, white and rose coloring.

Yellow gold is the most common color and is usually alloyed with silver and copper. Yellow and white gold are similar in strength and malleability, making them perfect for jewelry that is worn daily.

White gold is alloyed with nickel, copper, and zinc–and while it looks similar to platinum, it has vastly different properties.

Rose-colored gold is alloyed with copper and is often used to accent white or yellow gold. The saturation of color varies from piece to piece and according to gold content.

Caring For Your Gold Jewelry

To keep gold shining and scratch-free, avoid contact with chlorine and other harsh chemicals. Do not wear jewelry during rough work and be sure to store it in a fabric-lined jewelry box or pouch. To clean gold jewelry, use warm water, a mild soap, and a soft bristled brush, if needed.

About Diamonds
Diamond Clarity:
No two diamonds are alike. A diamond’s most distinguishing characteristics are its inclusions, marks that are often invisible to the naked eye. However, under a jeweler’s magnifying loupe or microscope they can look like crystals, tiny rivers, or clouds. A diamond’s clarity is determined by the presence or absence of inclusions–fewer inclusions mean better clarity–and how visible they are. The greater a diamond’s clarity, the greater its brilliance and value. A diamond categorized as internally flawless will have no inclusions, but this is extremely rare.

Diamond Color:
Though diamonds come in a wide range of colors, colorless diamonds have traditionally been considered the most valuable. Most diamonds are graded on a scale using the letters of the alphabet, from D (colorless), the best grade, through Z (a light yellow). It is difficult for the untrained eye to notice such variations in color unless stones are being compared side by side.

Diamond Carat Weight:
A diamond’s weight is measured in carats, with one carat being equivalent to 100 points. You will often see a diamond referred to as a 3/4-carat stone or a 75-point diamond. Larger stones are often more highly valued, but size should not be the only consideration–high brilliance, which varies according to clarity, cut, and color grade, is highly desirable in a diamond.

Diamond Certification:
A diamond certificate represents independent verification that the stone purchased has all the qualities of cut, color, clarity, shape, and weight expected. It is a further indication of the condition and value of that diamond as represented on our site. Such certificates are issued by several agencies employing highly trained gemologists and provide an unbiased and accurate evaluation of the diamond. These gemologists scrutinize each stone to analyze its dimensions, clarity, cut, color, finish, symmetry, and other details.
Diamonds purchased from the Amazon.com Collection may be certified by the Gemological Institute of America or the International Gemological Institute. The type of certificate provided will be noted in the product specifications of your jewelry purchase; if you do not see a certificate type noted, one will not be provided.

Our Diamond Policy:
Amazon.com sources high-quality diamonds from some of the world’s largest suppliers. All our diamond suppliers certify that to their best knowledge their diamonds are not conflict diamonds.

Diamond Care:
Diamonds, as the hardest substance on earth, are resistant to damage. However, diamond jewelry is set in different metals, and care will vary from piece to piece. Diamonds should be cleaned in a solution of one part ammonia to six parts water, using a gentle scrubbing brush to remove any dirt. It is a good idea to have them cleaned once a year by a professional jeweler, at which time the security of the setting can be checked as well. Diamond jewelry should be stored in a soft cloth pouch to ensure that the stone will not scratch other jewelry.

Book Description
Publication Date: May 31, 2011
Over the course of the last five years, Tim Tebow established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of college football and a top prospect in the NFL. During that time he amassed an unparalleled resume—winning two BCS national championships, becoming the first sophomore in NCAA history to win the Heisman trophy, and in the face of massive public scrutiny, being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by the Denver Broncos.

Now, in Through My Eyes, Tebow brings readers everywhere an inspirational memoir about life as he chose to live it, revealing how his faith and family values, combined with his relentless will to succeed, have molded him into the person that he is today. As the son of Christian missionaries, Tebow has a unique story to tell—from the circumstances of his birth, to his home-schooled roots, to his record-setting collegiate football career with the Florida Gators and everything else that took place in between.

At every step, Tebow’s life has defied convention and expectation. While aspects of his life have been well-documented, the stories have always been filtered through the opinions and words of others. Through My Eyes is his passionate, firsthand, never-before-told account of how it all really happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great inspiration to read with my daughter!, June 1, 2011
By Mile High Mommy (Colorado) –

Reading this with my daughter has been a gift I’ll treasure forever. I hadn’t expected a young man to have much wisdom to share just being so young (and he addresses that nicely), but I have found more than just the story enjoyable – the book has been a great conversation piece for me with my 10 year old daughter. I am grateful Tebow created this story for family and friends to share together. What a gift!

Example – the chapter about Tim’s mom’s pregnancy impressed me with the delicacy and dignity he (with Nathan Whitaker) uses to offer the story. Here, I had expected a more evangelical Tebow (which I would have been fine with), but it never got “preachy” – just inspiring and touching the heart deeply.

Generally, to me, Tebow seems to present his faith as HIS and absolutely the only right answer FOR HIM. He doesn’t express his faith as the only truth for everyone, but rather uses his platform to explain how valuable it has been to him personally. I didn’t get the feeling that he was holding himself up as the gold standard whatsoever (again, I might have been just fine with that, because he does seem to be a fine modern example of a young man dealing with fame and faith beautifully, and, besides, I couldn’t be offended because I happen to agree with him in this respect).

I am thrilled his story has been genuine, heartfelt and inspiring. And he hasn’t really even lived but a small portion of his lifetime yet – so I can’t wait for the sequel! :)
I hope that one leads to the greatest heights of his hopefully legendary career. More importantly, a legendary LIFE :)

UPDATE: BOOK SIGNING, TATTERED COVER, DENVER 06-04-11 > What a class act this man is! Took my daughter and my neice to have their books signed. They both feel so blessed that they got to shake his hand as he looked sincerely into their eyes and told them it was HIS honor to meet THEM! OMG – to see a child’s heart touched (and eyes tear) from hearing such an inspiring remark from someone who is larger than life to them both. He treated them as if they were the only people there for that moment.

My neice leaves in 6 days to work at orphanages in Africa for 3 weeks and was overjoyed that I gave her Through My Eyes to read on her trip. She’s going to LOVE having this book with her – in her hands and in her heart as she works in Africa! GB2 to Mr. Tebow!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Christian Evangelistic/Action Film I’ve Seen, January 30, 2007
By S. Keeney –

This review is from: Billy Graham Presents: The Climb (DVD)
I’m giving this film 5 stars because it is in the limited offering “Christian” section; but I would give it 4 stars even stacked up against secular movies with a lot more money spent on production. This movie has everything; an unusual story, beautiful scenery, good acting, comedy, lots of action, heroism, sacrifice, character change and development, biblical values balanced by fairly realistic presentations of non-believers, a touch of racial and cultural tensions, and a clear presentation of the message of Jesus. The Christians show flaws and failings; the non-Christians aren’t stereotypes. It’s family-clean and doesn’t compromise to tell its story, but it tries to stay in touch with the sinful side of life as well.
The rockclimbing story is handled with high production values. As a beginning/intermediate climber, I didn’t see anything in the climbing that made me say, “Oh, come on!” Many scenes look authentic and provide thrills and frights. The interaction between the two main characters is believable.
This is just a really good Christian film, even if you know nothing about climbing. Buy it, enjoy it, use it for outreach. It might even inspire you to learn to climb :) (“He is my Rock and my high tower . . .)
Warning: be careful of showing this to young kids. It does have plenty of dangerous scenes, a fight, drinking, and a death. Great for teens, though.

Book Description
Series: Bible Kjv | Publication Date: October 26, 2010
Oxford is proud to announce a limited edition of the 1611 text of the King James Bible, with real leather binding, gilt edging, ribbon marker, gift presentation plate, and protective cloth slipcase.

This is the most authoritative edition of the King James Bible available. The text of the 1611 edition differs from modern editions of the King James Version in thousands of details, and this edition is the most authentic version of the original text that has ever been published. It follows the 1611 text page-for-page and line-for-line, reproducing all misprints rather than correcting them. The volume also reprints the large body of preliminary matter, which includes genealogies, maps, and lists of readings, as well as the translator’s preface to the reader. The text features an easy-to-read modern font instead of the black-letter type of the original, with the exception of the original decorative letters and early page ornaments, which have been reproduced. The volume concludes with an essay by Renaissance Studies expert, Gordon Campbell, on the first edition of the King James Bible.

The four hundredth anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible will be a major event, with celebrations held all over the world. This beautiful Anniversary Edition will make an elegant keepsake with which to remember this event as well as a marvelous gift for anyone interested in the Bible. (christian friends, anyone interested in christianity)

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a wonderful Bible!, November 9, 2010
By D. J. OROURKE

This review is from: King James Bible: 400th Anniversary Edition (Bible Kjv) (Hardcover)
I’ve had mine for about three weeks now and I am very pleased with it. It is large, and as such it’s not a carry Bible and it’s not a read in bed Bible. It is, however, a really pleasant experience reading this Bible at a desk. I happen to do a lot of my reading at my desk anyhow, so it works out great.

The layout of the text is fantastic, with lots of white space in the text, which makes it very easy reading. The line spacing is very generous as well. The references are just great; not nearly as overwhelming as, say, a 1560 Geneva or any modern reference Bible. I like the sparse references. There are lots of alternate readings provided, which I actually prefer over the cross-references. They really make reading the KJV much easier by clarifying vague or confusing verses.

WIDE MARGINS! Nowhere in the product description does it mention that is a fantastically wide margined Bible. I’ve never even seen a genuine 1611 KJV, so this kind of came as a surprise to me. But, wow, if your a note taking kind of person there is lots of open space for you to use. Basically something around 1 3/8 on the sides and just under and inch on the top and bottom. Another really nice thing is that the inside margins are big too, which means that NO text gets even close to the gutter. All the text is within a box on a flat sheet of paper no matter where you are in the Bible. Just a great presentation.

The font is not overly large considering the size of the book, but it is plenty big. Probably 9’ish sized font. The overall quality is really nice. I’m not sure that it’s a “luxury” edition exactly, but for $50 it is a super fantastic buy. The leather cover, gilding, paper and binding all seem to be of a very high quality. I have zero issues with this Bible. For the purpose that it serves I can’t recommend it enough. If you want a classic looking KJB for desktop reading, with big margins and 1611 content, buy this one… you won’t regret it.

I get goosebumps when I read this by candlelight; simply amazing. God bless and peace to all my brothers and sisters in Christ! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Physical Splendour at a bargain, February 23, 2011
By Dr. Chuang Wei Ping “Dr Chuang”

This review is from: King James Bible: 400th Anniversary Edition (Bible Kjv) (Hardcover)
The chap who said “Never judge a book by its cover” probably never ended up selling a single book. I could easily have walked by this Bible in a shop, which from the outside, looked unremarkable except for its size, and concealed in a dowdy maroon cloth covered slip-cover.

Yet the Anglican Journal uses superlatives like “Physical splendour” to describe this “Quartercentenary Edition, an exact reprint in Roman Type, page for page, line for line and letter for letter of the KJV otherwise known as the Authorized Version published in the year 1611 with an anniversary Essay by Gordon Campbell.” “Quartercentenary” triggers off a spell-check alert, and it is a good thing we all understand that this does not mean 25 years.

The real burgundy leather over hard board covers has simple but solid gold stamping. It does not grab appeal. It slowly grows on you, very slowly I must add. The burgundy colour is a refreshing departure from the regular black covers. It is not a hip bible and its majesty took me some time to appreciate.

This bible is huge. The statistics of 11.3 x 9.1 x 2.4 inches and 6.3 pounds does not strike you as large until you are actually holding it. Of course, it is small in comparison to the original KJV, which is 17 inches tall, 30 pounds in weight, which may actually require two people to lift into the pulpit.

In a world of vertically longish bibles, it is rare to find one so exquisitely proportioned. The width of the bible being slightly over 0.8 times the height is the ideal W:L ratio. It is the width, which gives this bible a distinct presence. When it is open, it is a magnificent sight as a book with such a wide “wing-span” is very rare. To read this bible, the support of a table or a bed is needed. I prefer the bed.

The bible opens up flat. The margins are really wide, which adds to the aesthetics, and a great help to post-it users like me. The uncluttered layout makes the “bland” parts of the Old Testament easy to read.

For this review, I have bent the bible backwards to examine the binding “crash”, “mull” or that thingy which supports the stitching. It looked even and nicely done when viewed with a fibre-optic light. The binding – the first book part to give way and also the least visible – looks strong and the hinges of the covers likewise. Some additional effort made to secure the hinges was visible. The binding will resist the shearing forces in the hands of those more accustomed to handling small “i”-phones than very big books. I think this bible was built to last. There is nothing which says that it is acid-free, although it looks like acid-free paper is used.

The pages are glare-free even under the strongest (halogen) or uneven lighting (like from a bedside lamp). The pages are thick matt-white, and do not stick together. Every leaf feels strong and does not crinkle easily. Not much of yellow highlighter ink seeps through to the reverse page of a leaf. The Apocrypha is between the New and Old Testaments so opening the bible in the centre does not find Psalms. Amazon describes one ribbon, but my copy has two claret red ribbons, one over Esther and another over Isaiah, so they are both symmetrical around the centre. The gold paint on the gilded edges do not appear to be thick enough as the fore-edges look whitish when the bible is open.

There is quite a bit of artwork in the earlier pages of this bible. The Title Page art is impressive.
The calendar retains some of the Gothic typeface of the original 1611 KJV. There are 33 pages of illustrated Genealogy in different artistic layouts. This 400th anniversary edition is large enough to have a Map of Canaan over two opposing pages, but the details are hard to make out, since this is not the original 30 pound KJV. The artwork in the Capital Letter block in the beginning of each chapter is really interesting. There are a lot of “A”s, as in “And it came to passe…”, but it is amazing how many artistic variations there are for the capital “A” alone. There can be three different types of artwork for three separate “A”s appearing on the same spread. I estimate that there must be at least 100 different basic block artwork for the letter “A” alone, and I think I see some tiny variations in similar blocks.

The 11 ½ page essay by Gordon Campbell at the end of the text block gives a summary of the history of the KJV including how the Apocrypha got excluded. Very intriguing is Gordon Campbell pointing out that there are thousands of differences between the 1611 KJV and the present day bookshelf KJV. 1611 KJV Matthew 16:16 “thou art Christ” changed to “thou art the Christ”, “the words of Jesus” Matthew 26:75 became “the word (singular) of Jesus”.

Even a comma changed 2 Corinthians 5:2 from “for in this we grone earnestly, desiring to be clothed” to “for in this we grone, earnestly desiring to be clothed”. There were 350 “typo”s, 250 in the text and 100 in the marginal notes. Mostly inconsequential, like Gel: for Gal:, or “plaine” in Leviticus 13:56 which should read “plague”. Gordon Campbell then appends a separate 2-page list of some typos, like “brothe” for “brother” in Matthew 12. He does not go into errors in translation, and wisely too.

I note some comments about this bible being printed in China. Most of the 400th Anniversary ones are printed in China, and they are well done. I see it as a step forward. PRC will never allow politically sensitive material to be printed in China, and I sense that China is realising that persecuting Christians today is becoming a lost communist cause. I once commented that the most attentive listeners of sermons in Church are the government agents. To which a friend retorted, “Hallelujah, at least some in the secret police may still be Saved.” Likewise, at least some in the bible making industry in China may still be Saved.

Book making has long been outsourced, and it is pretty tedious work with low profit margins. Unlike some branded goods, at least the savings on bibles have been passed on to consumers. The similar sized large print Dake KJV (also very large and heavy) is printed in Korea, while the compact Dake is printed in China. As China is getting less competitive, printing is moving to Vietnam and Indonesia. Gordon Campbell was very decent in claiming only a “moral right” to his essay, rather than a copyright.

A bible of “physical splendour” at a bargain price.

2011 Thanksgiving update: I notice that the cover has changed from the dowdy maroon to a more impressive black cover with more stamped embellishments. The old Amazon illustration was just a maroon rectangular blob. They said it was going to be a limited print edition. I suppose it is the classic maroon one is limited. I would never begrudge more of this bible being printed. Apparently the demand is high. For those in the USA entitled to Free Shipping from Amazon, this can be considered a further discount. It exceeds the standard weight and international buyers incur a weight surcharge on this heavy item.

4.0 out of 5 stars The mother of all bibles, October 24, 2010
By Wu Wei

This review is from: King James Bible: 400th Anniversary Edition (Bible Kjv) (Hardcover)
This is a large and HEAVY bible! Also, it is a 1611 KJV bible which means that it is VERY, VERY, VERY different from the ordinary King James bibles. For anyone who wants all of that, that is, anyone who wants a large, heavy 1611 King James bible will be happy with this edition.

Besides being 8.5 X 11 inches in size, this bible is over two inches thick. It has heavy, quality paper, along with a very sturdy and heavy cover, so it is HEAVY. It is uncomfortable to hold in the lap, and it cannot safely be read while opened with one hand. However, the font is large and clear enough that it can be read in bed with a tilting bed stand. Without such a stand, the only real option is to read the bible while it is laying flat on a table. If that is not acceptable, the buyer should consider smaller, lighter 1611 King James bibles instead of this one.

Like any 1611, this is very different from any KJV or modern bible. The spelling is phonetic, and very different from today’s spelling. For example, “been” is spelled “bene” and “do” is spelled as “doe”.

Also some letters are actually “switched” while printing. For example, modern “v” is often printed as “u” and modern “u” is often printed as “v”. So “unto” is spelled “vnto”, “up” as “vp”, “have” as “haue”, and “love” as “loue”. “joy” is spelled “ioy” and “Jesus” is spelled as “Iesus”.

Overall the print quality of this bible is excellent. However 3 of the last pages of the Revelation and one page of the appendix following that have a single dark bar across the bottom. This can make one line of the page harder to read. The paper quality is excellent and the print is consistent and easy to read. The edges of the pages are gilt all the way around
