The bright and cheerful New Year
has brought forth a tantalizing as-
ISortment of new jewelry to tempt
the jewelcl onscious co-ed to spenid
her Christmas money. Among these
fascinating displays of Chinese, in
spite of a few minor bombshells that
have been dropping around their ears,
have managed to send some exotic
pieces of Oriental objects d'art into
the country.
There are delicately carved white
jade rings mounted i chasd Silvter1
settings. More expensive ones hiav~e
appeared in the rich, deep tone ofI
IVie wpoinat

the .iade green and are carved and4
peirced in much the same manner as
the whi-te jade rings. Both 'types Of

Brass Rings Shownc
The Tibetan monks are contribu6-
ing to the jewelry bazaars this win-
ter with hand wrought rings of rich
burnished brass with turquois-a andi
,oral sets of mosaic patterns. Many
of these rings are considered lucky
a.nd have minute charm pebbles in
their centers. One very -unusual Tib -
tan ring has a huge silver setting that
-overs all of the first joint of cane's
finger. In the center of this i ,:ii
{arge half-circle coral set surr )tUnded
''y raised turquloises.
From a source nearer home the
Mexican peons have contributed some
of their exquisitely' massive silver
pieces. Not only is one able to buy
ings and pendants but also there arc.
arge twisted silver bracelets and
yven larger link ones that clank men-

:Dear Vicki:
I was watching the world go by

tion of prospects for the first month
of the New Year. There's nothing
like a busy corner when you're in the
mood for a bit of philosophizing on
the whims of a wayward world,
