Story Behind the Art:
These beautiful jewelries are one of the traditional art pieces hand made by the Chinese minority known as Miao people who live in the Southwestern part of China. In this region of China there are many high mountains and historically it has been isolated, hence the Miao people have developed their own unique art and culture separate from the Chinese majority known as Han. When these items are sold, the money can be used to improve the lives of local villagers.

I love the look of these, but they fell apart and I had to glue them back togetherRead More

Bought as a gift but they were fairly large and rather heavy so they wouldn't have worked. Look v kind of antique, have a real cool picture design on the back but one was made shoddy and had a piece of metal sticking up around the edge. Sliced my finger on it! Had my husband file it down so it's not so sharp, didn't want to mess with a return for the price. If the stones stay, I'll be happy.Read More
These Antique Miao Design Earrings are very pretty (though not antiques.) I had expected them to be larger, but they were smaller than I wanted. However, I liked the detail of the earrings and decided to keep them. I would recommend them.Read More
This are one of my best pair of earrings. They are beautifully made.Read More
These earrings are different in that the display doesn't show the engraving on the back. It's cool; an engraving of a monk. No one seems to have noticed him, but I know he's there. The weight of the earrings could be an issue - not real heavy, but a little more than my others. I really like the combination of stone colors and the price was really good!Read More
I love these earrings.They are more weighty than I was expecting, but in a good way.They have beautiful detail and the colors reall stand out. I am very pleased.Read More
These earrings are breathtaking! they are a good size have a good heft not flimsy at all. Too bad they didn't show the back they are all hand carved with beautiful designs . Looks like expensive jewelry at a tremendous priceRead More
The earring are too heavy. Look cheaper than the picture allows. One was broke I had to fix it. Now not sure what I'm going to do with them. Too heavy for my ears. Or anyone else I know. They do look very pretty. Poor quality.Read More
I decided to buy these because of how unique they looked. I am very pleased with them. The different coloured stones are actually shinier than in the photo, which is nice. And the monk on the back is a nice touch. They are a bit weighty, but if you don't wear them 24/7 you'll be fine. They go with casual or dressy clothes too. But be careful of the edges as they are, for lack of a better word, jagged, and may catch can on hair or clothing. Very very pleased with this purchase.Read More

Modern Wedding Anniversary Gifts
A wedding anniversary, whether the first or the twenty-fifth, is a milestone worth celebrating. Giving a thoughtful gift to your partner is a wonderful way to show affection and commemorate the time you've spent together. Finding the perfect gift isn't always easy, especially if you've been giving each other gifts for decades. Where do you look for new ideas? This list is the best place to start. Each gift idea has a link to the department where you can shop for the items. In England, during the Victorian era, celebrating anniversaries with gifts and parties became very fashionable, and it didn't take long for the trend to reach the United States. The traditional list of anniversary gift ideas came from this time. Then, in 1937, a group of jewelers decided to update the list to include more modern items (and more items that they sold in their stores -- diamonds show up on the list three times). That's where this list of modern wedding anniversary gifts came from. Many items from the original list appear here, and we've offered even more contemporary interpretations of the ideas. If you want to give a creative gift, you can use this list as inspiration.
