Soft jewelry

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Wellendorff (39)

Luxury jewelries use strong precious metals and are often hardened during manufacturing to make them withstand impact. In turn, they can be hard on the skin. If you have sensitive skin, no matter how opulent the jewelry is, you'll be hard pressed to enjoy its elegance while wearing it when you're uncomfortable. Wellendorff, the luxury German jewelry maker, must be thinking of this situation when it created its Silken Touch, a collection of bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. The surface is smooth and soft, mimicking a silk material. The 18k gold material is woven into a soft, supple surface and finished in cold enamel, the trademark of Wellendorff. The result is a jewelry masterpiece that's both impressive to look at and to touch. Wear it on formal evenings without the fear of discomfort.
 
Wellendorff is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Dew Drops

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:15:00 AM in Annieglass (32)

Yet another interior accent to add to your dining area or living room, the Annieglass Dew Drops Collection is a glass masterpiece. The surface mimics the glassy surface of a quiet pond and a trickle of dew drops is set to create some ripple. The surface imitates a leaf's slender shape and the color, a translucent green, evokes a deep hue. This collection gives your dining set an artistic flair; if you're into arts or design, the Dew Drops only adds to your creative projection. The line includes food servers, plates, and saucers, among others. It's best to set them together to achieve a unified theme, but each piece can stand on its own as a soft accent to a hard surface like a wall.

A Touch of function

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Tissot (38)

Tissot is a master of digital engineering when it comes to watches. From timer to compass and other chronograph functions, Tissot displays these features at 6 o'clock with an elegant layout. You have a line of colors and dial sizes to choose from that match your fashion or taste. Furthermore, Tissot has a sophisticated line of models that use tactile technology, the ability to control functions with a touch of the glass screen. The watchmaker calls it the T-Tissot, watches that you can set with finger taps. This feature is not just for style; they make an efficient way to measure time in tight spots as sporting events or outdoor adventures.  Imagine rock climbing while setting your chronograph. A simple tap of the screen is much practical than rotating or pressing buttons.
 
Tissot is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Go ahead, host a party

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Arte Italica (31)

There's a pleasure to be had when hosting a party. It's not just to close a deal or earn accolades from important people. Not even to impress others. It's the social element that makes hosting a gathering a likable pursuit. The idea of seeing a lot of people you're interested to see or talk to in one place at a given time makes up for all the effort and expenses that go with organizing a party. You have all the time to talk about your big plans with people who share your dream, or small things just to catch up with your guests. A conversation about your Arte Italica collection, for instance, is not just for formalities. The talk shows that you share interests and passion with these people, and having them under one roof is something that doesn't happen every day.
 
Arte Italica is available at Schiffman's in Downtown Greensboro.

Night Vision

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

The Swiss Army brand is one of the world's most admired and valued signatures, that collecting its watches make a good investment, if not for passion. The Infantry model is a good starting point, until you have enough confidence to collect more sophisticated timepieces like the Night Vision. It is one of Swiss Army's best-selling watches, featuring a steel case treated with “black ice” or titanium plasma color coating. The model has a sleek grey dial in a 42 mm stainless steel case. It exudes the classic Swiss lines and a narrow bezel. But the highlight is the watch's night-vision LED light points. The overall style is dynamic while maintaining the focus on functionality and durability. To create an  aesthetic balance the watch features an army green rubber bracelet.
 
Swiss Army is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.

Small talk idea

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:00:00 AM in Beatriz Ball Collection (31)

Small talk is an art form that's greatly overlooked by hosts when inviting special guests. It's the ice breaker to a tense situation or an informal way to earn admiration. Small talk also keeps the party's dynamics going, lest dead air kills everybody's mood. Unfortunately, we can only talk so much about the weather and religion or politics is a no-no over dinner. Talking about your travels may put off some guests. One way to create small talk is to position interesting items in your party area. For example, a Beatriz Ball metalware bowl placed on the table can elicit a question from a guest who's into collecting things or interior design. From the bowl, the talk can spin into other things, such as, arts, passions, or home design.
 
Beatriz Ball Collection is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem.

Porcelain has been valued greatly throughout world history. There had been the greats and there had been those that just add clutter to the mix of porcelain producers.

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:10 PM in Slane (32)

Evolution

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:00 AM in Raymond Weil (38)

One can never disconnect a piece of art from the inspiration it sprang from much like one cannot deny the connection of a leaf of a tree from its roots. Much like you can never separate Raymond Weil from music. Much of Raymond Weil’s creations arose from the company’s love for the auditory art. Music is a part of Raymond Weil’s identity much as paints are for brushes. But just like music, watches also evolve. They come in variations. They move evolve into new forms. This is true when it comes to the iconic Nabucco. It now comes in a modern variation that stays true to the original while adding a modern twist – meet the Rivoluzione II. This piece is made up of steel, titanium and carbon fiber. It moves the Nabucco forward – a revolution.

Great China from Gien, France

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Gien (34)

Great china sure comes from China but great china also comes out of France. Yes, France, with all its great contributions in food, wine, culture, art and everything else also takes a big slice of the cake when it comes to creating great china – porcelain that is. Limoges porcelain has been known to be quite malleable to be formed into different beautiful pieces and stay durable for a long time. One of the great producers of great china in France is Gien. Gien started its porcelain journey in 1821 and after long years it became an invaluable part of the country’s heritage – a near national treasure. Over the 19th century, it has supplied many aristocrats all around Europe. Also, Gien has provided more than 2500 aristocratic families with plates adorned with their family crests or monograms. 
 
To avail of your own customized plates by Gien, visit Schiffman’s at Downtown Greensboro.

What is the Next Big Thing?

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Philip Stein (33)

Since the advent of watchmaking, every watchmaker, watch enthusiast and self-proclaimed timepiece scholar has asked the question, “What is the next evolutionary step for watches?” It is this question deeply embedded in watchmaking, watch-wearing, and watch-appreciating culture that ignited every little tweak or leap in improvements in designs, functionality and overall awesomeness of watches. But when someone asks this question today, what should be the answer? Well, we know some of Philip Stein’s answers and one of them is the Signature Collection. With an 8 shape design, dual time zone dials and interchangeable straps (making them any-occasion-ready) make the collection a force to be reckoned with or better yet, a site to behold. But the punctuation to Philip Stein’s answer doesn’t just come with these bundle of novelty, chic and cool elegance. It comes in as the embedded Natural Frequency Technology that is designed to help the wearer focus and concentrate more in today’s active lifestyle.

Do it Better

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Haviland (31)

Eating, dining, enjoying a cup of tea or coffee can be quite mundane; especially in today’s fast-paced and busy work-life cycle. Sometimes, we forget how these simple things, that are quite essential mind you, can be exponentially greater by changing up the delivery mechanism to which we use for ingestion – follow? Well, there’s a great chance that you have experienced drinking coffee from a plastic or a paper cup. It is also greatly possible that you have enjoyed it more while using a coffee mug. It may be the taste, the feel or whatever else; I’m not sure but it is just so. But one not-so-wild guess is that it’s just proper way to do it. And what’s more proper to eat on, drink with, or enjoy life’s almost mundane moments than with Limoges Porcelain? Maybe it is the feel, the look, or just the thought that it couldn’t be more perfect than it is. We cannot be sure how but it surely just is. 
 
For your proper, beautiful and durable porcelain pieces, get some from Haviland in Schiffman’s at Friendly Center.
