The number markings on precious gold jewelry are a bit of confusion to lots of people. We are generally used to seeing a karat or silver mark like this: 10K, 14K, 18K, Sterling, etc. The numbers mean the same thing.For 14k the number is technically 583 but most manufacturers adopted the European way and make 14k gold a tiny bit over 14k, so the mark is 585 in most 14k jewelry. 18K is marked 750. If the mark is valid and there is a makers mark also in the jewelry, the number means these items are 18k gold.Here is where the numbers come from. Pure gold is called 24 karat.

Although their ads work, it does not mean that they are the only products worth trying. There are a few other lines that provide superb results for people who take caring for their hair seriously. I am a huge fan of a lesser known line of hair care products called Brocato. This is a line created by Sam Brocato, who has created a successful business based on his passion for beauty and education for not only the stylist, but for the end user.

Agoraphobia isn’t the opposite of claustrophobia – but a lot of people think it is. In fact I used to think exactly that. I used to think exactly that even when I was suffering from agoraphobia. I was even offered the opportunity to join an agoraphobics group, but I said no because I wasn’t afraid of open spaces. I quite liked open spaces as long as no one else was anywhere near me. In fact if there was no other human being in sight, then that was OK as far as I was concerned. But that was all a very long time ago.The translation of agoraphobia is ‘fear of the market place’, not, as many people think, fear of open spaces.
