    Graduation Time is Near

     Seems like there is someone graduating each year from high school or college and I used to struggle with gift ideas. Several years ago I became acquainted with a line of Celtic jewelry carried by Terry at The Celtic Ranch. It is rich looking, well designed and priced within my budget. It is also nice because you can buy a gift that will always remind the recipient of you. The men's jewelry looks masculine and is heavy enough to make you feel confident it will standup to everyday wear.

    The women's jewelry is just plain beautiful. Who is this designer and what is the name of his jewelry? It is Keith Jack.

    The C. R. carries several of Keith's award winning designs and you can also look at their stock on the internet at http://www.celticranch.com. Whether you purchase one of these pieces of beautiful jewelry for yourself or as a gift, you will not be disappointed. Check them out online but better yet, stop by and feel the weight and see the quality up close.
