Genco Berk's DeLight Humidor

Genco Berk considers cigars to be "an earthy product, which for cigar lovers can create heavenly pleasures," and believes that a humidor should be more than just a cigar storage box. Disappointed by the selection of humidors on the market he decided to design his own and created the DeLight Humidor. Taking its inspiration from ancient Chinese coins, the square center represents Earth and the circular exterior represents Heaven, a tie in to the emotional experience of cigar smoking. The square/circle theme is repeated on the lid as well as the interior, which is lined in Spanish cedar for optimum humidity control.

The DeLight Humidor is Genco Berk's first humidor design and is available in a limited edition of 300 pieces, each personalized with the owner's name and edition number, at a price of $4,400 each. Watch for Berk's second humidor to be released later this year.

No Sale Yet For Imelda's Jewels

imelda marcos
It looks like the incredible jewels of Imelda Marcos won't be up for sale any time soon. TheAFP reports that Philippine President Gloria Arroyo has said that any decision on selling the seized jewels of the former first lady should be left to her successor. Arroyo will be stepping down on June 30 to make room for Benigno Aquino, the son of President Corazon Aquino and former Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr. His parents led anti-Marcos revolution that eventually led to Ferdinand Marcos and his wife leaving the Philippines.

Major auction houses have been brought in to appraise the jewelry and the government could use the cash but the president decided to delay the auction in order to avoid suspicious of a last minute deal. The collection is said to be worth millions and includes a ruby pendant as large as a thumb and a 100-carat diamond necklace. Imelda Marcos continues to insist that her famed extravagances were bought with her husband's personal investments.
