Get lucky this Thanksgiving

(Click the picture to see all our luck token jewelry.)
 
Throughout the centuries wishbones have been used for all sorts of superstitious practices, like long-run weather forecasting or even predicting how a war would end. Tradition has it that Etruscans and Romans touched a dried furcula (Latin term for wishbone, meaning "little fork") as they made a wish. 

The Romans introduced this practice into Great Britain and from there the early settlers brought the tradition to America.

But why let your luck depend on a wishbone? Get instantly lucky (and happy) with this beautiful Art Deco horse shoe brooch or some of our other antique luck tokens.

An "expert" opinion on emerald

An "expert" opinion on

EMERALD

High class antique engagement ring with diamonds and top quality emerald from the antique jewelry collection of Adin Antique Jewelry Store, Antwerp, Belgium
(Click the picture to see all our antique emerald jewelry.)
 

Recently we found an antique book on gemstones written by what we consider to be an "expert". We just would like to share with you some of his revealing insights. This week we share his knowledge on emeralds.

"Greener than green is the emerald!" Thus speaks the old magician in his book. "This stone suffers no unchastity! To even such degree that if one weakens a virgin, the stone shatters! Therefore this precious stone can also be used as a drug to resist lovepotions of lewd women."

Terrible, those lewd women in the middle-ages... a good thing that doctors had such strong remedies against them.

Some more revealing insights on other gemstones from our new found "expert" will follow soon.

The Adin Carrot Diet, one of life's root necessities

The Adin Carrot Diet

One of life's root necessities

Belle Epoque hand-made platinum necklace pendant with big pear shaped diamond from the antique jewelry collection of Adin Antique Jewelry Store, Antwerp, Belgium
(Click the picture to see this bulky carrot pendant.)


Is it possible that consistent moderate weight loss could reliably result from a diet as simple as buying more Adin Carats? Yes!

The basic rule of this diet is to buy a few carats at or near the beginning of every celebration. Why should this work? This works because a bulky carat leaves no room at the party's end for the extra ice-cream or cheesecake. That saves a considerable amount of calories per party, which translates to a weight loss of more carats then obtained from Adin.

Adin Carrots are healthy additions you can make to any list in your diet. Indeed, these root necessities come with wholesome health benefiting compounds such beta-caratenes, vitaminA(antique) and vitaminD(diamond) in ample amounts.

Adin Carats are freely obtainable at www.adin.be. No doctor's prescription needed!

An "expert" opinion on AMETHYST

An "expert" opinion on

AMETHYST

Estate white gold bracelet with big amethyst from the antique jewelry collection of Adin Antique Jewelry Store, Antwerp, Belgium
(Click the picture to see all our antique amethyst jewelry.)


Recently we found an antique book on gemstones written by what we consider to be an "expert". We just would like to share with you some of his revealing insights. On amethysts he writes:

"Amethyst proved itself against witchcraft, which is still believed to be the cause of many accidents today. One should engrave the sun and moon in an Amethyst and wrap it in the feathers of a swallow. Wearing this amulet protects the wearer and his/her property against black magic."

And he follows:

"Because Amethyst is the birthstone for Pisces it is closely associated with Neptune and thus with all that has to do with water. Therefore, sailors will do well to providing themselves with an amethyst, so Neptune will be merciful on them. Amethyst also protects against inundation, flooding and risk of undermining."

We at Adin rather have our customers taking swimming lessons and buying amethyst as present for each other than using it for the powers proclaimed by the "expert" in this antique book.

Some more revealing insights on other gemstones from our new found "expert" will follow soon.
