This morning as I was packing some Ruby Lane Items to be shipped, it occurred to me that perhaps it would be helpful to my fellow Ruby Lane Shop Owners to share some tips I have learned over the years to pack and ship our items.

A May 1929 to-die-for copy of Vogue magazine had me drooling over the extreme Art Deco illustrations, amazing jewelry ads, low-waist fashions, voluminous wedding gowns and the details of the lives of the socialites of the day. There were comical ads for “daring” swimsuits which covered nearly everything and girls’ boarding schools that promised an exceptional feminine education including arts, homemaking, lawn sports and even secretarial skills. There were ads for trips to India and the Orient, luxurious resorts and a dazzling $25,000 diamond and platinum bracelet—over a quarter million in today’s dollars!

As a Ruby Lane shop owner for the last five years, I have discovered one of the most difficult tasks I must face is selling my items. Let me re-phrase that…parting with my items! You know…those items in your shop that you just LOVE! I can say now that I have come a long way since those early years as a shop owner. During that time, I was shopping regularly to build my shop’s inventory. Unfortunately, as my friends were quick to notice, many of those new acquisitions never quite made it to my shop!

"This lovely Pin from Sarah Coventry is called Strawberry Fesival. It has dimpled red cabochons which look just like strawberries."
When you browse for vintage jewelry and look at the description, you may find that the seller of the piece of jewelry refers to cabochons, commonly known as "cabs." Have you ever wondered what these are or thought what does a taxi cab have to do with vintage jewelry?

Boy, has it been a long winter here on the cape (Cape Cod, Ma.). It was only 38 degrees all day today. But still, there are signs of spring outside, a few daffodils and some lilies starting to show. We often don't get much of a spring here, but occasionally it does happen. Around here we usually just roll right into summer.

I noticed something the other day. Whenever I dress to go anywhere at all, I always wear earrings and a ring, or two. Even if it’s just to walk the dog, or run out to the supermarket, I do slip on my wedding ring. I have four wedding rings mostly modest, one with a diamond a friend gave to my husband when his dad, a jeweler, passed.
