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!

Religious pendants are a great way to publically express your faith. You won’t have to say a word – just sit back and let your jewelry do the talking for you. The most commonly thought of religious necklaces are simple cross and Star of David pendants, however, there are many more than those to choose from.

With so many different options – some in sterling silver, some in white, standard and rose gold, others with diamond accents, you’ll no doubt be able to find just the right one to suit your style and your religion. 

Christian Symbols
A cross, whether made of gold or silver, or embellished with diamonds, is the standard symbol of many Christian religions. However, you can step outside the box and choose other important symbolization as well, most notably Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary. There are several different versions of each available. Some of the most notable include Jesus with angel wings in a circle or a simple facial portrayal complete with long hair and a crown of thorns (made of your choice of three different colors of 14K gold and encrusted with pave diamonds.) The Virgin Mary options are simpler, as she is either depicted in a seated position, or with just her head, large halo and arms – in a position of prayer – all in rose, standard or white gold.

Jewish Symbols
The Chai symbol is a combination of two different Hebrew letters. It stands for the importance of life – something that you can show off with a white gold pendant fully encrusted with tiny diamonds. Another important Jewish symbol, as discussed above, is the Star of David. Options range from a seemingly simple Star of David coated in sparkly diamonds, or a combination of the Star and the Chai symbol. One particular standout looks like a basic sterling silver Star of David, until you look at the sides of it and notice the tiny oxidized filigree work. No matter how you’d like to profess your Jewish faith, there are plenty of pendants to choose from!

The Hamsa
The Hamsa is a symbol of many religions. In Christianity, it’s referred to as the Hand of Mary, while those who follow the Jewish religion call it the Hand of Miriam. In Islam, it’s the Hand of Fatima. There are as many different options of this pendant as there are meanings! The main depiction of it is the same: three fingers pointing downward with the thumb and pinky pointed slightly outward to form an almost-organic shape. Some pendants have an eye at the center, while others consist only of the hand-shape. Either way, you have you choice to colors, finishes and embellishments.

Ideally, a religious pendant goes with anything. These particular ones stand out, and work well with everything from work wear to casual outfits. You don’t need to be Madonna in order pull off a religious pendant and colorful track suit combination! In fact, as long as you feel confident in what you’re wearing, feel free to wear your religious pendant. There are no fashion related rules about self-expression.

Add Some Polish to Your Business Suit with a Man’s Gold Army Chain
Few things can add class to a suit and tie like a gold army chain. These chains come in various lengths and materials, most notably 10 karat and 14 karat gold. If you’ve been looking for the perfect thing to wear to work along with your wingtip shoes, your silk tie, and your gold cufflinks, then look no further! As you will see, army chains transcend their inspiration and can be worn at any time. 

 Why Are They Called Army Chains?
The style of an army chain is inspired by the chains that soldiers are issued to hold their dog tags. They consist of a series of balls (gold ones, in this case) attached to each other by a small bar. Like the ones for dog tags, they are sturdy, although the clasping mechanism is different – upscale gold army chains tend to come with lobster-style clasps, which are easier to fasten. While you could use one of these chains to hold your dog tags (or any type of pendant for that matter), they work well on their own, and add another dimension to your overall look.

Army Chains Can Be Worn on Any Occasion
Gold army chains are available in different styles, lengths and patterns, including those with crescent moons carved into them, making them very versatile. They are available in a number of different lengths, including 24 and 32 inches. Most army chains come in two different types of gold – 10 karat and 14 karat (both classic yellow gold) making it easy to match them to your tie clip, cufflinks and other accessories. While chains formerly were predominantly worn only by women, army chains lend an air of masculinity – mostly due to their origin and inspiration – making them the perfect thing to wear with your suit, tie, tuxedo or other “dressed to the nines” look, particularly if you choose one with engraved crescent moons on each bead.
Despite the elegance that goes along with an army chain, choosing one with a larger width, or “ball” size – 1.8 millimeters as opposed to 1.5 (the difference between 1/14th and 1/16th of an inch) – makes the entire chain less formal. You can wear these chains with everything from jeans and a blazer to casual chinos and a button down shirt. They add a little something extra to that classic preppy look.

Gold Army Chains Are Not Just For Men
Unlike other forms of jewelry that are delineated for just men or only women, some gold army chains can be worn by both genders. A long army chain makes the perfect accessory to hold a few gold pendants, some memorable dog tags (your own or those of a loved one) or anything else that you can think of.
 Men’s gold army chains are appropriate for many different occasions. They call attention to their wearer, and can command respect in the same way as a suit, tie and nice pair of shoes. Women can also pull off an army chain if they so choose, making these chains the ultimate accessory.
