Ruby Jewellery Rubies are stones in the corundum family, which are basic aluminium oxides, coloured by other minerals Rubies, sapphires and emeralds are all essentially the same stone, with different coloration, but rubies, especially the very precious and rare ‘pigeon-blood’ ones are the most sought after of all The only precious stones harder than the corundum ones are diamonds and this is another reason why rubies are so popular in jewellery; unlike some stones, such as opal, rubies are very strong and won’t get damaged in normal wear, so they can be made into ruby rings, earrings and pendants and won’t have to be treated with any particular care...

Of all of the cultures of the world in which to do business there can be none where etiquette in daily activities and those in business are more important Communication with businesses in Japan needs to show respect for their culture and traditions and the best way of doing this is to use a Japanese translation service to ensure that all of the business communication you deliver is wholly appropriate in tone and content Respecting Other Cultures The Japanese culture is very much focused on respect and tradition, and an act that could be deemed disrespectful could cause a partnership to fail, a contract to be declined or a sale to be withdrawn...

Style and elegance abound in dress choices, with many dress shapes to chose from, but no more so than with the long sleeved versions When you need to exude class, sophistication & mystique rather than glamour, exuberance or party-readiness then give the low cut, strappy styles a miss and go for longer sleeves The covered shoulders and hidden elbows of the long-sleeve dress have a much more subdued, subtle and toned-down appearance, ideal for smarter business events, an important family celebration or a stylish wedding or just when you need to dress to impress...

Derived from practical work-wear, playsuits and jumpsuits don’t have to look like garments for going to the building site or factory in But would you be happy arranging if the banking clerk or travel agent was wearing a playsuit, even if it was a woman Not everyone has the same view, because as the names indicate the playsuit was not necessarily purely with hands-on tasks in mind, and the jumpsuit was considered an ideal item for the fashion-conscious hang glider pilot...

At first look, the maxi skirt is to the mini skirt what the Austin Maxi was to the Mini – a piece of 70s frumpery compared to its sexy 60s … erm … mother But that is to completely miss the point Maxi skirts, and their dress equivalents, were hugely popular throughout the 1970s, and the chintzy designs remain to this day a legacy of the era...

Leather jackets for women are probably a much more diverse affair than their male counterparts, spanning as they do the whole spectrum of formality, from the rough and ready tasselled biker jacket to chic and subtle evening wear This wide range of styles has ensured the leather jacket has survived many a fashion renaissance and will probably go on fitting the bill whatever direction style takes And for those girls who aren’t won over by leather, there’s always the opportunity to be swayed by suede, leather’s slightly more velvety cousin that brings a sensuality to the material while keeping its solid lines and ruggedness...

We take sportswear for granted nowadays to the point where only a fraction of the clothing made by the big sportswear manufacturers is actually bought for performing athletic activities Walk into a modern sports retailer and you’ll see hundreds of types and brands of trainers, tops, caps and trousers (and the occasional pair of shorts) that will probably never see a running track, football field or baseball diamond So it’s fair to conclude that sportswear is now so ingrained in our modern fashion sensibility that we hardly notice it any more, even when we are wearing it...

2012 is proving to be a record-setting year on the sheer quantity of Nostradamus predictions Beyond the Mayan end-of-the-world event, a shaky global economy, an upcoming presidential election, and a looming crisis in the Middle East combine to create a flourishing environment for prophecy In contemporary culture, the word "Nostradamus" applies to predictions of all types but this article will emphasize the real prophecies of Nostradamus, published in France during the 16th century...

While sportswear doesn’t seem all that odd on men in a non-sporting context, it’s still relatively unusual on women It’s a strange thing, really, as both men and women engage in sport as participants and as spectators, so there shouldn’t be any more distancing in this respect Is it perhaps because women tend to have a few looks to pick from, whereas men tend to find a style they like and stick with it...

One of fashion’s mysteries is why leather seems fine above the belt and below the ankles but crosses some threshold of taste when covering, or partially covering, the legs Leather trousers outside the realm of motorcycling can make a man or woman look like they are trying too hard to be sexy, associated as they often are with mid-life crises and propping up bars in Essex villages Cut away the legs and you’re left with leather shorts, epitomised by Bavarian slap-dancing and Alan Partridge’s fantasy lap-dancing...

Next time you’re in a vintage clothing store sliding your way through a pole of superb denim shorts, ponder this: many of them might have started life as an everyday pair of jeans, but some of them might have had even more exotic origins, such as being a denim jacket or a pair of dungarees And by the same reckoning, they might end their lives as a pocket or a button … but that’s probably too distressing to think about Making a pair of shorts out of an old pair of jeans is a tradition that is probably about six months younger than that of jeans, such is the irrepressible urge to take scissors to your trusty legwear once the knees have gone through...

In the pantheon of casual wear, the denim jacket occupies an especially revered corner It’s the go-anywhere, do-anything jacket, equally at home on the red carpet sporting a designer label as it is flapping in the wind on a motorcyclist’s back In other words, it’s both a great leveller and a measure of designer sensibility, and there aren’t many garments you can say that about...
