Some jewelry trends come and go, but one thing stays the same: classic silver jewelry. The best thing about silver is its affordability; even those who can’t afford to buy a nice ring or elaborate pendant made from platinum or gold, might still be able to get those same styles in silver for a better price. And, like gold and platinum, silver can be worn with anything!

About Silver
Silver is a precious metal that is found in the earth, in various countries throughout the world, although it is most abundant in Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Canada, Chile, China and Australia. It has been in use as jewelry, silverware and coinage for thousands of years. As proof of its popularity, the early Anglo-Saxon people had two different spellings of the word “silver”, and the ancient Romans used it by the ton to produce their coins. Yes – silver really is a classic metal!

Silver Bracelets for All Occasions

Although coins and other objects are still made of silver, one of its most fashionable configurations are that of silver bracelets. There are different styles to choose from, including charm bracelets, bangle style bracelets (popular because silver is malleable enough to be bent to fit just about wrist size), chain link bracelets that are similar to necklaces, and gemstone bracelets in which the stones are inset into the metal. With so many different styles, it’s no wonder that silver is so popular!


Simple Silver Rings and Earrings
Silver rings and earrings are available in many different styles. A dangle, or drop, style of earring works well with formal outfits, while a simple pair of jeweled studs with a silver base can be worn on both casual and formal occasions. As a bonus, some people who have sensitivities to different types of metal earrings usually do not have the same allergic reactions to silver.
Silver rings can be either elaborate or simple – the choice is yours. You can have one with many different gemstones, or with one single stone. They are also available with etched in patterns that have a vintage look. You really can’t go wrong with a silver ring!

Silver Pendants, Chains and Necklaces

A silver chain can be worn with just about anything. A simple, thin chain with a small pendant looks nice when paired with jeans and sneakers, and with a little black dress and heels. Yes, with silver necklaces, you can wear the same piece with both outfits – it’s that versatile! Some silver pendants allow you to proudly display your astrological sign, your favorite type of gemstone, or the religious symbol of your choice. You can also eschew the standard pendant and just wear a simple chain. 

No matter your personal style, you should have no trouble at all finding a piece of silver jewelry to fit your needs and complement your outfit. Whether you want to wear a bracelet, a pendant on a chain, a set of earrings or a ring – or one of each – you’ll have plenty to pick from!

Some chains can simply make you stand out from the crowd – Miami Cuban link chains are one of them. They are thicker than standard chains, and are made of substantial pieces of gold that are interlocked in a unique pattern that almost resembles herringbone. The style was popularized by Miami-area rappers (hence the name of the chain style and pattern) but it can be worn by just about anyone, as long as you style it correctly.

Various Lengths of Miami Cuban Link Chains

Unlike some necklaces that only come in standard 18-inch and 20-inch lengths, Miami Cuban link chains are available in a variety of them. You have your choice of 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, and 40-inch chains. This means that no matter how big your neck is, or how far down you want your chain to hang, there is one available for you. Some of the longer lengths can even be doubled up for maximum impact.

Pick Your Favorite Style
Do you prefer white gold or yellow gold? Maybe rose gold? How about encrusted in tiny pave’ diamonds? Miami Cuban link chains are available in all of these, from 10K to 14K gold. While most of the thicker widths (those 3 millimeters and up) are marketed towards men, this does not mean that women are limited to only the 2.5 millimeter ones. Anyone can pull them off – all that you need is a little confidence – so feel free to choose the best ones that suit your personal taste and style.

How to Style Your Miami Cuban Link Chain

Due to the thickness of the metal, Miami Cuban link chains can make many other pieces of jewelry look insubstantial. This means that you should either wear it alone around your neck, or looped alongside several other similar chains. Earrings may get lost in the “shuffle,” unless they are large as well. However, you can get away with wearing rings, bracelets, and other pieces of jewelry, whether or not the metal matches. (The rule on wearing only yellow gold with other yellow gold items – and so on – went out the window a long time ago.)

As far as clothing is concerned, you can wear a Miami Cuban link chain with just about anything. It will look nice with a tailored suit for men, or a skirt suit for women. You can wear one with your club gear, that designer sweat suit that you lounge around in, your casual outfits and, really, anything else that you can think of. The outfits that you can wear a Miami Cuban link chain with are as versatile as the style of the chains themselves.

Miami Cuban link chains are guaranteed to turn heads, so be prepared for some attention when you’re wearing them, no matter what you’ve chosen to wear with one. Their versatility makes the price well worth it, and you should find yourself reaching for your chain on a daily basis. Your biggest problem may be choosing just which one(s) to buy!

Watches are an investment. A good, solid everyday timepiece can cost anywhere from almost $700 (for an Aqua Master with diamond accents) into the thousands. There are also statement watches, such as the $51,400 Joe Rodeo Master Piece watch. To put it simply: you need to protect your watches when they aren’t on your wrist, particularly when you are travelling with them. This is where Orbita travel cases and display boxes come in handy. 

Multi-Watch Orbita Display Boxes
Orbita watch display boxes can be as impressive as the watches that they hold! Some models consist of a wooden box made of a stylish teak or black burl, both designed to show case the wood of the box, as well as its contents. Once you’ve chosen the type of wooden box that you’d like to keep your watches in, you have a decision to make – to go with either a single row-model, which holds up to six watches, each with an individual padded compartment, or a multi-level one, which has a removable upper tray, as well as a lower section to hold the watches.
No matter the type of case, all have a black suede lining that covers the inside. These will prevent your watches from getting bumped against the interior sides of box, which can cause scratches, dents and dings. The parts of the cases that have individual compartments are also lined with this material, with the difference between the two styles being the watch pillows, which are also covered in the same black suede. A watch wrapped around one of these pillows can be shown off, as well as protected.

Single Watch Orbita Travel Cases
If you only need to bring one watch with you on your next business trip, then you’ll need to choose a single-watch case. After all, why miss the chance to pack light by taking a huge case for only one watch? A single watchcase from Orbita consists of a black leather box with a padded interior. Like the watch display boxes, the insides of them are covered in padded black suede, which will keep your watch in good shape while in transit.

Multi-Watch Orbita Travel Cases
Depending on the number of watches that you need to take with you, there are options ranging from a double watchcase to something larger. Some of the Orbita cases hold as many as 16 different watches, although there are others that hold three, five, eight or twelve. All of these travel cases close securely, and have leather exteriors and suede interiors. Your watches won’t get damaged in transit in one of them. 

When you have a diamond accented watch, the last thing that you want to do is keep it hidden away. Thankfully, Orbita display boxes provide you with the opportunity to store your watches in style when they aren’t being worn. If you need to travel with several different watches – one for each suit – then you’ll need a padded travel case that will keep your watch safe. One word of advice however: always pack your watches in your carry-on luggage!
