The Holidays are finally over and we’ve all made the journey from the old world that the the Mayans warned us would end last year into the new world we’re in now.

After all, it’s only six weeks away!

Landstroms Black Hills Gold Watch – LWB9285-BLK-09250
The original manufacturer, and the leader in Black Hills Gold, Landstroms recently created this new ladies wrist-watch and watch-band combo just in time for the Holidays!
The watch itself is Landstrom’s classic Model 09250, which consists of a black round dial with eight 12 karat Black Hills Gold leaves and a stainless steel back. The watch mechanism is a quartz movement and is backed by a three year warranty. Of course, the Black Hills gold leaves themselves carry Landstroms Lifetime warranty.
What’s new is the watch band itself. Rather than cast the ends in solid 10 karat gold, Landstroms has instead made them from brass base metal making the ensemble a fraction of the cost of their solid gold models. The brass is then powder-coated with black enamel and articulated with a myriad of 12 karat Black Hills Gold leaves and details. Connecting the two ends is a standard twist-o-flex expansion band.

Many countries celebrate weddings the same way that’s done here in the US: a white dress for the bride, a black suit for the groom, and the exchange of a wedding band.

Yet, there are many other ceremonies and practices that have their roots in a nation’s or a tribe’s ancestry, beliefs and lifestyle.
In China a couple exchanges red handkerchiefs with pictures of mandarin ducks – in Chinese culture the ducks represent a long lasting relationship. In India, the ceremony involves the couple each holding the end of a cloth and then walking four times around a sacred book. Interestingly enough, the color white represents death in India, so the bride wears a red wedding gown. Read more…
