A few years ago my uncle gave me a baggie which contained a pretty rough looking piece of twisted metal. Upon opening it I realized that it was a Navajo sterling silver cuff style watch with turquoise and coral. This poor thing was in horrible shape, the watch was busted, the cuff practically cracked all the way through and one of the large turquoise stones was missing.
Sitting there holding this, I thought to myself "this sure looks familiar". My uncle explained to me that this was my grandfather's watch. "That's why I remember it" I said. You see my grandfather passed away when I was just a boy and he was only 52 years old. He was the Chief of the Penobscot Indian tribe here in Maine, and I remember seeing this watch on him when I would visit him in the tribal offices after kindergarten class.
I'm going to confess that I am a complete and utter hopeless romantic. I LOVE hearing people's love stories. The best place to discover a good love story from Maine is the Real Maine Weddings website during the entry period of their Real Maine Wedding of the Year Contest. I had the great privilege to meet last year's winners, Alyssa and Nick, and learn their love story. They were two of the kindest, sweetest, most humble, people you will ever meet and they left some big shoes to fill for the 2013 winners.

To make a wise jewelry purchase away from home, two elements are essential; quality assessment and you've got to love negotiating.
First assess the quality of the mounting. The most common problem customers encounter with jewelry purchased on the islands are stones falling out. This is caused from prongs being too thin or from porosity in the gold. Porosity is a phenomenon where air bubbles are trapped in the gold during the casting process. Since porosity is hidden and difficult to detect, your best bet
