The central display case is flanked on the right and left by two glaes-paned display cases that enclose the room. The tight woolen pile of the carpet absorbs the sound of footsteps and creates a sense of inherent luxury. A carpeted stairway leads down to the first floor. You also see the gem merchant Denaru.

Details

>look at central case
Within the center display case, an assortment of engagement and wedding rings surrounds several unmounted Dwarf-cut gems, the largest of which is a brilliant blue sapphire of extraordinary size.

>look at display case
Polished strands of pearls, each surrounding matching pairs of earrings, take up most of this display case, with shell necklaces and crystal pendants filling the rest of it.

>look at other display case
Inside the display case, sparkling brightly against a layer of black velvet, a twisted gold torque stands out amidst an array of earrings, earcuffs, and rings.

>look at Denaru
Elegant and angular as any of elven lineage can be, Denaru's poise and demeanor suggest a noble rather than mercantile upbringing.  His competence in the field of fine jewelry is a natural assumption, since his attitude and diction indicate an expertise in all things genteel.

>ask denaru about <question>
The gem merchant Denaru ignores your question, suddenly looking to be busy.


Ambient Messaging

"Are you aware that citizens of Vornavis frequent our shop?" asks Denaru.  "Why, even Baron Dunrith Malwind himself has examined our wares, searching for a fitting gift for his daughter's birthday...and he did not go away empty-handed, I might add."

Denaru draws a snow white handkerchief from the sleeve of his doublet and wipes a smudge from the glaes pane of one of the display cases, then tucks the handkerchief once more into his sleeve.

Denaru lifts a large dwarf-cut blue sapphire from the display case and polishes it meticulously with a chamois before returning it carefully to its place of honor in the center of the case.

Denaru lifts a strand of golden pearls from the display case and offers them to a customer to try on, adding,  "Might I say, dear lady, with your complexion and the delicate line of your throat, these will look exquisite!"

Denaru picks a bit of lint from the sleeve of his doublet, then smooths the fabric with a quick brush of his fingertips.

Denaru rearranges a pair of black pearl earrings in a display case and smooths the layer of black velvet to either side of them.

Denaru stands behind the display case with his hands clasped behind his back, waiting for that glance or lift of the head that might signal a need for assistance from one of his customers.

Denaru tugs gently at the hem of his waistcoat and smooths his cravat with a habitual sweep of his right hand.

"If there is anything I can help you with, please say so," suggests Denaru with a smile.

"Kahlyr crafted most of these herself," Denaru smiles proudly and says, as he indicates the contents of the display cases with an elegant sweep of his hand.

"Most often folks tend to take eye color into consideration when selecting a piece of jewelry, but complexion and build can also be very important aspects to consider," suggests Denaru.  "Then again, some folks simply fancy a particular kind of gem or metal."

"One of the frequent honors of my position here," comments Denaru with a genuine smile, "is in the opportunity to assist young lovers in their choice of rings to symbolize their feelings for each other."

"We stock a wide variety of jewelry, including items expertly crafted from treasures provided by Niima's grace and generosity," says Denaru with a smile.

With a genuinely friendly smile, Denaru invites, "Come in!  Come in!  Peruse at your leisure!  Lady Kahlyr stocks a full range of jewelry items, from items sure to strike the fancy of those of a practical mind to those whose bent is more towards the fanciful and extravagant.
