Everyone wants to put their best "face" forward, and the right earrings can help you do just that! Take a look at this short video to learn how to choose the right earrings that will best suit your facial features.
When you are deciding which earrings to wear, consider length, color, and shape. Long earrings can be elegant and sophisticated, and work especially well when your hair is pulled up. Colorful earrings can set off your best facial features, so look for colors that work well with your eye color and skin tone. If you’re looking for an everyday pair of earrings, choose simple hoops or studs that can be dressed up or down depending on your outfit.
You’ll find a wide variety of earrings and other jewelry at any Gem Pawnbrokers in New York City. Contact us at (718) 502-8053 or check us out online to see what has made us the leading pawnbroker in New York for over 60 years.Leave a comment »
Are you shopping for power tools? Having a toolbox stocked with power tools is immensely helpful if you want to save money on DIY projects. We've put together a list of which power tools are essential for DIY enthusiasts like yourself and the jobs they are best used for.
A circular saw is an essential tool for many DIY jobs. The cordless option is very easy to use, and is especially valuable in tight situations when a cord would get in the way of your cut. Still, it’s good to have a corded circular saw for jobs that require more cutting power. A scroll saw is also important, and features a narrow blade for precise cuts. A jigsaw is great for making custom cuts in thin material. Add a rotary saw to your collection to make multi direction free-form cuts directly into difficult materials such as laminate and drywall.
Cordless drills are great drills for everyday use. For drilling jobs that require greater precision, however, be sure to get a drill press. This power tool is mounted to a base, which allows it to stay straight and perfectly aligned.
This power tool is important if you will be getting into fine woodwork. A standard router is used to remove parts of the edges from a piece of wood. A plunge router does the same thing, but it is also able to remove material from the interior of a piece of wood.
A palm sander is used to sand a flat surface quickly. A random orbital sander is fairly similar, but it has a spinning surface that slows down when pressure is applied, which helps if you are sanding a more delicate piece. A belt sander is good for heavy jobs, while a detail sander will take care of any tight or awkwardly placed sanding jobs.
If you want to get a great deal on power tools in the NYC area, come to Gem Pawnbrokers. Established in 1947, we are the most convenient New York pawn shop with more than 20 branches in NYC. Call us at (718) 502-8053 to speak with us, or head to our website to learn more.Leave a comment »
Whether you are shopping for a diamond ring or hoping to sell one soon, knowing about the Rapaport Diamond Report will help. The Rapaport Report is the standard in the jewelry industry for pricing diamonds. Founded in 1976 by Martin Rapaport, the Rapaport Group began publishing the “Rap List” just two years later. Today the Rapaport Report is published weekly and sent only to subscribers. This report shows merchants and jewelers how to price a diamond based on carat, color, clarity, and cut. While many jewelers in the U.S. and abroad use the Rapaport Report to price diamonds, other organizations such as IDEX Online have challenged the accuracy of the Rapaport Report in the last 20 years.
If you are in the market for a diamond ring, come to your local Gem Pawnbrokers. We consult the Rapaport Report and a variety of other sources to ensure that we offer our jewelry for fair, competitive prices. With 20 locations in the NYC area, there's a Gem Pawnbrokers not too far away from you!
