Sterling Silver Dog Jewelry

Sterling Silver Dog Jewelry

I love dogs. I am not alone in my love for dogs, and the majority of Americans love dogs. I’ve never come across to God that I don’t love with a few exceptions. Nothing in a big laundry dog the jumps out at you when you’re on a walk and harasses you, but by far never met a dog I didn’t like.
Sterling silver dog jewelry is one of the greatest ways to celebrate your love for dogs especially if you’re in a situation that doesn’t allow you to have a dog. Sterling silver dog jewelry makes a wonderful gift to a dog lover.

I never had the opportunity to have a dog growing up. But after being married and having kids, we got our first dog. It was a stray dog roaming around the street looking for food, but it was still a little bit of a puppy less than a year old. We feed watered for a few days, no one came looking for no signs were posted so we decided to adopt it. It was a happy dog friendly and good with the kids it was disappointing to find out after we got the dogs for shots and a collar and leash that the dog belonged to a neighbor down the street around the corner. Even named the dog Shasta.

When the original owners found out, we had the dog, they came after it, they reimburse us for the cost of getting the shots if we would let him have the dog. If they didn’t have little kids who loved the dog and the dog loved them back, we would have kept Shasta. We were looking for another dog only to find out that I was allergic to dog dander. So we went a while without a dog. After my allergies put me on regular allergy medicine, we started to think about getting another dog.

We had a friend who had a pair of Chihuahua’s. They had babies and she offered us one, they came from a blue ribbon pure bred lineage. The sweet little puppy was a blonde haired tiny little thing. I usurped my authority and named the dog before anyone else had a chance to suggest names, thankfully everyone like the name Duke.

A few weeks later our friend found out that she had to get rid of another one of her Chihuahua puppies because of some zoning issue in her city that didn’t allow her to have more than three dogs in her house. She asked us if we would like one more Chihuahua puppy?

Against our better judgment we said yes! These Chihuahua puppies were so small and so soft we couldn’t say no. Chihuahua’s are people pleasing dogs and excellent with our kids. If one can bring in such great happiness two can bring us even more joy. What we didn’t know was that Chihuahua’s are people-pleaser’s unless there’s another Chihuahua around and then they want to please each other.

We were casual dog owners that wanted to have fun with the dog and enjoyed the dog’s personality. We taught the dogs basic commands but we were new dog owners and didn’t really know a lot about housebreaking the dog love story short we had a lot of "tootsie rolls" to pick up.

But by that time we were hooked in full in love with Duke the boy and Daizy the girl. We had a lot of fun watching them play together. One time I was home sick for several days, I was so sick could not do anything more than fall into my recliner and watch TV. Duke and Daizy, sensing that I was sick, jumped onto the recliner and snuggled in my bathrobe, each on their own side. I had two little apple heads poking out of my bathrobe. They were with me all day long for three or four days straight.

I got worried about them not eating but since they were eating or drinking they didn’t need to go to the bathroom. When the kids got home from school I had them take the dogs until they ate and went outside to go to the bathroom. When they came back into the house they made a beeline back for me and snuggled with me for those several days I was at home sick. It wasn’t just me, any family member that ended up sick; got the royal treatment from the dogs. Years later my wife surprised me with the cute little Chihuahua pup, black as night and so small I could fit onto my hand.

It was love at first sight for both the dog and me. That dog’s name was Paco. He’s been around now for four or five years. I tell you all this history about dogs just to reinforce how awesome sterling silver dog charms areas and in this case how awesome this cute little 3-D Chihuahua charm is. In this collection of dog jewelry you can find countless 3-D dog charms and some one-sided dog charms that work perfectly as a sterling silver dog necklace and all the dog charms hang equally well on a sterling silver charm bracelet.

Sermon On The Mount - Christian Virtues

Christian Virtues Taught At The Sermon On The Mount

Jesus taught eight virtues at the Sermon on the Mount and gave counsel on a few more topics. To understand the full Sermon on the mount read Matthew Chapter five.
From Matthew 5:2-11 we read the following:
And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.  (Matthew 5:2-11)
In these verses Jesus taught us that blessed are those that have certain virtues like poor in spirit (humility), the merciful or pure in heart.
If we want to be blessed by The Lord we need to be humble, meek, seek after righteousness, merciful, pure in heart, and peacemakers. Further we are told that if we mourn we will be blessed along with being persecuted or reviled, we will be blessed.
The Sermon on the Mount is a passage of peace and hope. While we find peace while reading these verses we need to carefully consider each verse and ask ourselves if we really are merciful or meek etc.  We need to liken the scriptures to ourselves and apply each word and each verse to our lives to have the blessings The Lord is willing to give us based on virtues we need to have within our soul.
I'm not saying that Christian and cross necklaces will give us these virtues but they can serve to remind us of the importance of these Christian virtues. The sterling silver Celtic cross necklace is very symbolic and can serve to remind ourselves of what we need to do.

Kentucky Derby 2014 An Underdog Race


Everyone likes an underdog story. If I would have know the story about California Chrome a little bit better I would have rooting for that thorough bred.  They did mention a very short blurb about California Chrome at the start of the race but I was thinking about Medal Count as my horse to root for. I confess it was the story behind his name that attracted me to him.
But after they elaborated on California chrome I was very happy for his victory.  He can from a mare worth $2,500 and a stallion worth $8,000.  In traditional racing circles the horses that run the Kentucky Derby and other similar races come from much more expensive parents. The idea being that they will have better more qualified horses to run the race.
Additionally, California Chrome was bred in California where most of the other racers are born and bred in Kentucky and surrounding areas.
Celebrate this historic Kentucky Derby race with sterling silver equestrian jewelry.  Silver equestrian jewelry is made up of silver horse charms, silver horse necklaces, silver horse earrings etc.
As we watch California Chrome go for a triple crown victory get yourself some silver horse charms and make yourself a custom made horse necklace.

There is a very large collection of silver horse charms in this collection. They are provide connected pages of horse necklaces, horseshoe necklaces and charms. It is likely the biggest sterling silver equestrian jewelry collection online.

Of all the sterling silver Irish jewelry that we are going to look at, there is even more Irish jewelry and Celtic jewelry that we can't look at. To see a full collection of Celtic Irish jewelry go to sterling silver Irish jewelry.

There are more Celtic necklaces than we can possibly look at. But I have tried to present a wide range of sample pictures. 

The sterling silver Celtic necklace includes all Celtic and Irish symbols. 

The Virtue Of Courage


Courage is a virtue that seems to be in short supply in this day and age.  I like this quote from the late Howard Cosell:
"What's right isn't always popular. What's popular isn't always right." (Howard Cosell)
It takes courage to make the right choice when all around you, you see that results of bad choices and feel pressure of those consequences.  That's where word jewelry comes in handy.  Sterling silver word jewelry is a bunch or word charms and word necklaces.
There is a word charm called the courage charm.  This courage charm is just one of over two hundred word charms.
To see all the various words engraved on the word charms then go to word charms.

Celtic Knot Jewelry


Sterling silver Celtic knot jewelry comes in a wonderful array of Celtic jewelry specifically designed with Celtic knots.

Out of all the sterling silver Celtic knot jewelry pieces, like Celtic knot rings, Celtic knot earrings and Celtic knot necklaces, we will look at a few types of Celtic knot necklaces. Keep in mind that while we are looking at just a few, there are numerous types of silver Celtic knot necklaces that you can see but going to Celtic knot necklaces.

Even the sterling silver Celtic cross necklace falls into the Celtic knot necklaces genre. The Celtic cross necklace above illustrates the use of Celtic knots in a Celtic cross necklace.

The Celtic knot often has specific meanings.  The Celtic knot in the above Celtic knot necklace represents a Celtic knot of "luck".



The sterling silver Celtic cross is not new to cross jewelry and Christian jewelry but it is gaining in major popularity.  The silver Celtic cross is so popular that it is very common to find a Celtic cross necklace in a collection of Christian crosses and no mention is even made of it being a sterling silver Celtic cross as opposed to a more traditional cross.
Here's why...  The silver Celtic cross is all about meaning and symbolism.  The Celtic cross is shaped like a "regular" cross but also has additional symbols.  For instance, the silver Celtic cross below has Celtic trinity knots and an Irish clover along with some other Celtic knots.

Understanding the Celtic cross meaning can't be explained by one sterling silver Celtic cross even one like the Celtic cross above with its extra symbols.  But if you were to look at the Celtic cross meaning source you could learn above most, if not all the various symbols that appear on various Celtic crosses.

Word Jewelry

Word Jewelry

Word jewelry, like any other sterling silver jewelry, comes in many different shapes and styles.  The main difference between the two types of jewelry is word jewelry has words and short phrases engraved on the charms and pendants.
Many of the sterling silver word charms look like the round love charm shown below in the love charm necklace.
Word jewelry can also work hand in hand with traditional themed jewelry like this sweet little number:
"We are all weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we call it love." (Robert Fulghum)
The love charm necklace shown below is popular for so many obvious reasons but it also goes well with this quote by Mr. Fulghum.
The life charm goes well with that quote also and it is the same as the love charm only with the word "life" engraved on it.
