Silver Jewelry will turn black over time. This is a normal process during which silver reacts with oxygen and sweat but also ingredients of for example skin care products. For cleaning purposes we recommend silver cleaning cloth. These are soaked with chemicals which solve silver sulfide and take on the black residue. However during this manual process small amounts of actual siver are removed as well. Do not polish silver plated jewelry in this manner too often! We always recommend to take off silver jewelry during manual labor, while performing sports and in the shower or sauna.
Dragon (latin draco, greek drákon, "Snake") is a synonym for lizard-like, mostly winged hybrids described in
mythologies and fairy tales. They combine properties of snakes, crocodiles, lions as well as horn-bearing and fire-breathing ones
in different variations. In general, dragons stand for liberation and unleashing and are endowed with strong spiritual
meanings in various cultures and religions worldwide. Often they are thought to be gifted with magical abilities or supernatural
powers and are often associated with wells, rain and rivers, happiness and prosperity, superhuman wisdom and long life.
In some cultures they are attributed the cognitive abilities of human language. In Asia, the mythical creature is considered a lucky charm.
Dragons can also be a symbol for the primordial powers conquered by man, but also primeval fears and dangers not conquered, that exist underground as well as chaos. In Christian dominated and influenced cultures dragons did and do symbolize the overcome forces of the personified evil and subjugated missionized, unchristian nations, but also the evil sinful forces of man.
In Celtic tradition, dragons were assigned to the four elements (fire, water, earth, air). One differentiated between water dragons, earth dragons, air dragons and fire dragons and therefore connected the dragons with creative and magical primal forces.
In Chinese Horoscope: The dragon was the symbol of the chinese imperial family. The emperor was seated on the "Dragon Throne"
and through his exemplary life the realm was supposed to be positively influenced according to the Confucian Ideal.
People born in the year of the dragon are healthy, energetic, long-lived, volatile, impatient and insistent. On the other hand
they are reliable, honest, brave and show great self-confidence. They strive for harmony and integrity. They are perfectionists
and demand the same of others. They try to only show their best attributes - but sometimes overdo their model role.
Dragons have a firm will and are rather successful - whatever they start. Dragons are the most excentric personalities in the chinese zodiac.
They best match with people of the year of the rat, the rooster, the snake or the monkey.
