What do moms REALLY want? Look no further than the bedroom…

 

No, it’s not what you’re thinking! But in a very unscientific survey of 6,000 mothers about what moms REALLY want for Mother’s Day, nearly 70 percent agree they would prefer two extra hours of sleep over a piece of expensive jewelry. For the other 30%, we’ve got you covered at The Gold Market!

Moms also agree that a sentimental gift from their child is preferable to a massage or a fancy makeover. More than 60 percent of moms who took the survey agree that they’d prefer an adorable, hand-made card from their kids instead of a day at the spa.

Moms are torn, however, on whether their idea of a perfect Mother’s Day involves spending the day surrounded by their kids, or relaxing in quiet solitude. Of the moms who answered the survey question, the votes were split 50/50.

Here are the top things that moms said they would love for Mother’s Day:

  1. Sleep
  2. Jewelry
  3. Candy
  4. Phone call
  5. Scented candle
  6. Brunch/Dinner with the family
  7. A clean house
  8. Flowers
  9. Breakfast in bed
  10. Car wash

A watch that went to the MOON and back

Bulova made space history on August 2, 1971—during the Apollo 15 mission, a moon pilot chronograph, customized for lunar conditions by Bulova engineers, was worn on the moon.

 

The Bulova Wrist Chronograph was Commander Dave R. Scott’s personal timepiece on the 1971 Apollo 15 mission. It was the only personal watch (not owned by the government) that went to the moon.

Just recently, Dave Scott’s personal Bulova chronograph was auctioned and ended up selling for $1.62 million dollars!

Now Bulova makes history again with the special edition Moon Watch, updated with exclusive high performance quartz movement with a frequency of 262 kHz for unparalleled accuracy, continuing a history of precision timing.

Features include super-luminous hands and markers, anti-reflective sapphire glass, tachymeter and calendar all housed in a solid 316L surgical-grade stainless steel case in silver-tone with black dial.

The Dave Scott Bulova Re-Edition comes with two interchangeable straps, a textured black leather strap as well as a loop-and-hook, nylon NASA-style strap similar to the one found on Scott’s personal watch with nubuck leather patch that commemorates the date of mission (DOM) as 08021971.  A Gift-box presentation includes a Certificate of Authenticity.

Bulova made this one-off for lunar use when Scott became the seventh man to walk on the moon, and the first to drive the lunar rover.

Come see the new Bulova Space Watch re-edition in person.  It’s so awesome!

PANTONE 2016 Color(s) of the Year: Soft is Beautiful

pink earrings

For the first time ever, PANTONE, the world-renowned authority on color, unveiled not one, but two shades for its 2016 Fashion Color Report — and we love them both!

Aquamarine and diamond pendant

ROSE QUARTZ and SERENITY BLUE are Pantone Color(s) of the Year

“Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves.

-Leatrice Eiseman Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute™

rose quartz ring

Influenced by the world of art, new global doors opening and the desire to disconnect from technology and unwind, designers this season have gravitated toward a palette that is calming.

Other inspirations include “the contrast of urban design and lush vegetation, leading to unexpected color combinations and collections reminiscent of architecture, travel, and nostalgia.”

“With our culture still surrounded by so much uncertainty, we are continuing to yearn for those softer shades that offer a sense of calm and relaxation, both of which focus on a desire to breathe and reflect, then play.”

These 2016 colors are more about letting the softer side of you emerge.  Maybe the whole world needs to remember that strength is terrific, but softness is beautiful too.

aquamarine earrings

Rose Quartz, is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. It feels very feminine, serene and focused. It would make for a beautiful pendant or statement ring.

As a gemstone, Rose Quartz helps keep us centered on our surroundings during the busy but free spirited spring and summer months.

Weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, Serenity comforts with a calming effect, bringing a feeling of respite even in turbulent times. A transcendent blue, Serenity provides us with a naturally connected sense of space. Blue tends to bring a sense of comfort and tranquility to mind, and this transcendent version evokes feelings of strong connectedness within our space.

As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent.

A symbolic color selection that work well together and a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.

Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.
