I think we are on a different planet sometimes, not just in another country...
Relic is a noun sooooooo....
(Whatever happened to aging?)
Ach the back of my hand to the OED, I sent them a perfectly good new word and they told me to f*ck off, they had enough to be getting on with apparently, like ‘meme’ for a photo with a caption, all that bollocks. Not that I am bitter, or anything.
I'm into romance languages, with interesting words such as "dinner," "movie," and "drinks afterward."
To err is human, to forgive is divine, go and speak not against metaphors forever more.
That's where we found the skellington guv'nor...
Actually, the word Jewlery I quoted is out of the dictionary. and it means what I said. (not jewels)
Yes Jewry is also a word that means : "Jewish people collectively or similar references to the people or habitation"
Yes, jewelry can also be spelled "Jewellery" with two L's. (UK etc)
I found this which seems appropriate here:
A stupid and senseless way for idiots to pronounce the word jewelry. Commonly spoken by those who pronounce the word nuclear as nucular.
"Hey honey, how about we go to the jewlery store and pick out your engagement ring?"
"Not a chance, moron. Hey, read a book once in a while, k?"

Maybe, but not an English dictionary.
The original word was evidently with the K: So if you are a traditionalist you should spell it that way!
Relicing is fine: The exception to the rule is used elsewhere:
The use of <cing> pronounced /kıŋ/ in "relicing" is not a completely isolated case.
arcing. This spelling pattern also shows up in the word "arcing", the -ing-form of the verb arc. The Oxford English Dictionary indicates that arc has been used as a verb at least since 1893.
syncing. As noted in the answers to the related question "Synced" or "synched", the verb sync also has <ced> and <cing> spellings. It has a variant spelling synch.
talcing. The only spelling given by Oxford Dictionaries. Collins lists talcking and talcked alongside talcing and talced, but the -ck- forms for this verb are uncommon enough to not show up on the Google NGram Viewer, and Garner's Modern English Usage specifically says "talc [...] anomalously makes talced and talcing, not *talcked and *talcking." The OED's first citation for the verb talc is from 1888, and provides an example of the -ced spelling: "Engineer LXVI. 334 A glass plate is first cleaned, talced, and collodionized."
*invents proper spelling for made up word*
“You’d better start spelling it this way!”
Before finger wagging, consider that “Relic” is not a verb. So there is no correct spelling for “relic-ed”. It is not a word.
Please point me towards the dictionary where 'Jewlery' is synonymous with Jewry. I'd love to take a look through it.
Now that I’ve had a moment to research this “relicked” business thoroughly, I’m afraid we’re all not quite right. It’s a complex irregular verb.
I played my guitar for 20 years to make it look old;
You relic’d your guitar for 20 minutes to make it look old;
He f*cked a perfectly good guitar for no reason.
Google it. I just did.
But ....my point is it is NOT the same. In few words: Jewry seems to be more about the "people", jewlery is more about their "possessions".
+1 on Squire, however, Ima stick with relic, because relick, relicking, relicked, etc...just sounds disgusting.
jewelry is usually spelled out as "forgiveness for past sins and those not yet commited" or at least that the way the fairer sex looks at it.
I did. These are the top 4 hits, all typos/illiteracy. None of the first page hits referred to it being a synonym of Jewry, and it ain't in the OED or Merriam-Webster.
