Other 925 pieces

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:54:29 PM in The 925 (32)

The 925 has been known for quality sterling silver picture frames that are both elegant and reliable to keep your photos protected. There are, however, other product additions to The 925 catalog that can add style to your interior. The Mantle Clock, for instance, is perfect to adorn a center table or atop a traditional fireplace in your living room. Made from The 925 signature fine sterling silver, this piece features malachite, antique movement, rubies, diamonds, ivory, and 24 karat gold. It's traditional, yet has a contemporary ring to it. Similarly, the Kiddush Cup in monochrome style features medieval scenes etched in details around its body. It's at once an interior design accent and a functional drinking glass if you fancy an elaborate drinking ware.

Watch regulations

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:52:37 PM in Ball Watch (34)

Did you know that wristwatches are regulated by the government? The U.S. Department of Defense released a Military Specifications called MIL-W-46374F, which set the requirements for, among others, the strength, anti-magnetic, and climate endurance of the wristwatch. Ball Watch manufactures its watches since 1891 to exceed these government specifications. For example, its case is made from high-grade corrosion-resistant ferrite stainless steel or titanium with antimagnetic soft iron inner jacket. The crystal is made of anti-glare sapphire with a dielectric strength of 20,800 kg/cm2. Ball Watch also enjoys the self-powered micro gas light that allows you to read the dial even in dark and adverse situation. Furthermore, the watches are water-resistant up to 1000m (specific models) with a patented crown protection system. Its movement also used Swiss precision manufacturing and subjected to rigorous conditions.

Who doesn't love to go out for a picnic? This long-held tradition of partaking meals outdoors, ideally in a splendid place like a lake or park or at a public event (al fresco or en plein air), is probably one of everyone's favorite activities. While this tradition could have been observed for centuries now, only a few might know that the word "picnic" was first used in a published work in 1962 by Tony Willis in his work, Origines de la Langue Française, where the obviously new term, "pique-nique," was used to refer to a group of people dining in a restaurant where each one brought their own wine. The custom of people bring their own food as well as drinks had been brought until today. And why not further enliven this rich human tradition with a touch of dining elegance from Annieglass? Its buffet plate, handmade glass of 13-inch durable plate will be a perfect picnic companion everywhere you plan to go.

Berlin and elegance

Posted by Schiffman's at 5:00:00 AM in Wellendorff (40)

One of the most celebrated and historically-rich hotels in Germany, and likely for the entire Europe, is Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin. Built in 1907 by Lorenz Adlon, Hotel Adlon was Germany's bold answer to the emerging new luxury class of American hotels that emerged during the late 19th century. Indeed, it became a legendary venue for a myriad of important political and social gatherings in Europe. Among its long line of celebrity guests include Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, Charlie Chaplin, Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller, Albert Einstein, among others. It was also here that the world-famous German jeweler, Wellendorff, launched its new collection “Rope Dreams,” a line of chord-inspired pieces that will definitely amaze jewelry fans and collectors everywhere. A great addition to its "silk made of gold" creations, a true Wellendorff original design.

Homegrown dish

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:30:00 AM in Arte Italica (31)

Parents dread the day when their children, now adults, leave home to start their own families. Even if the children live in the neighboring city, the chance of seeing them often for a weekend lunch or dinner at the old family house is minimal, especially now that the "kids" have the in-laws to also commit their rare, free weekends. One way to ensure that your children pay you a visit regularly even if they're busy raising their own families is to cook them a home signature dish, something that they've grown up liking and can't find elsewhere. It can be your 24-hour smoked brisket or roasted tomato soup with a secret ingredient. Homegrown dishes will remind them of their happy childhood days. Serve them in an old-world themed Arte Italica dinnerware and dinner becomes irresistibly nostalgic for your children.

MotoGP's Lorenzo complains of tire change

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Tissot (39)

The Tissot-sponsored MotoGP is more than the powerful bike's engine or the racing skills of the rider. There's the grip factor that spells a win or lose for a MotoGP racer. Jorge Lorenzo highlighted this factor after having performed below par, taking him 14 rounds to claim a victory last season. He complained of the change in the rear tire, which Bridgestone switched to a stiffer, heat-resistant make. The Spaniard uses edge grip at full lean for his corner-run signature, and the change made it harder for him to take this style. He compared his predicament to tennis. "If a tennis player doesn't like a surface and suddenly he has to play three of four tournaments on it for sure he cannot perform at the same level." In extreme sports like MotoGP, a fraction of a change is critical.

The Boardman Silversmiths craftsmanship

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Boardman Silversmiths (31)

The gleaming and smooth finish of a Boardman Silversmiths piece reflects the precision manufacturing process and professional skills that go into each of the silverware. Considered a work of art, each piece starts at blanking presses that make precision cuts of geometric shapes from .925 sterling silver sheets and lead-free pewter. Boardman Silversmiths' pewter is one of the heaviest lead-free material used in the industry. In the hands of a craftsman, the cuts are shaped into exact shapes and curves by leveraging up to 900 pounds per square inch. Specially designed "sectional chucks" allow the craftsman to create a range of shapes. The curved pieces are then soldered on hollow fittings and are hand polished with pumice for a satin or bright finish. Boardman Silversmiths dedication to this strict process makes the signature of the most admired brands in silverware today.

Garden party with Beatriz Ball Collection

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Beatriz Ball Collection (31)

Hosting a garden lunch or dinner is an effective way to impress guests without being blatant. Showcasing that you have a spacious garden is a subtle trick of telling guests that you have an above-average property without offending their middle class senses, or signaling to valued clients that you're a "winnable" partner in business. But having a garden event is more than just putting the tables and chairs out in the open. It involves great planning, such as, covers for possible weather shifts, the right audio system to ensure the sound is audible without annoying the neighborhood, and attention to details down to the dinnerware. For outdoor entertainment, Beatriz Ball Collection offers a wide array of themed sets that fit a garden ambiance, including: Organic Pearl, Ocean, Forest, Croc, and Catena.
