It helped everything from respiratory function to headaches to energy needs.

We are thrilled to carry this fabulous book about how to purify your home or office. That's right, indoor air is often worse than outdoor air (the term Sick Building Syndrome corroborates). And given that on many days most of our time is spent inside, there's definitely cause to clean it up.

LS Jewelry will accept any unplated platinum, 10K 14K 18K 22K gold, and sterling silver for recycling at a local plant (where it's melted down so it can be made into some entirely new bling).
To get started, simply head into the design studio with the jewelry you no longer wear. They will test the purity of the metal, send the pieces to the recycling plant, and then issue you a store credit upon settlement, (which typically takes about two weeks).
Want to dig deeper as to why less mining for gold and silver is a good idea? Read more on the quandaries of quarries here.
