There is something quite compelling about jewelry when we see it. Perhaps it is the flash of light reflected in polished metal, the dancing fire seen in perfectly cut diamonds, or the warm glow found in high quality colored gemstones -- we are drawn and we are captivated. But a fine jewelry piece is often more than itself.
Special jewelry pieces can mark the commemoration of an important milestone in life -- an anniversary, a birthday, a graduation, a special holiday, a second honeymoon, or simply a moment that cannot be expressed with words. Anyone who knows that connection will be reminded of those moments with each glance.
Through the ages, rings have commonly been worn to express a special devotion. The gift of precious jewelry is a demonstration of commitment to something greater and higher than oneself. The wearing of that gift is an acknowledgement and acceptance of a bond, and a return of that commitment.
Beyond the symbolism of precious jewelry, though, is its own fascinating beauty. For many, jewelry is art and, like art, it is examined and appreciated for its materials, craftsmanship, and originality. Quality jewelry can allow us to stand out, to draw attention, to feel unique.
So what is a planned purchase?
