I remember as a young girl how fascinated I was with my mother’s jewellery. Every piece told a story and helped me make a connection to my family, some of whom I had never met and also places that I had only heard of. It was shiny, sparkled and in many ways magical.
Every trinket and bauble in your jewellery box also has a message. Many of these tales may have been told by previous generations and your mission is to pass this little bit of history onto the next echelon. That is one of the amazing qualities of these tangible goods. For instance, every bride can look at her engagement ring and recite the five W’S (who, when, where, why, what) associated with that special day. Every item you own represents something. It may be a symbol of hope, inspiration, celebration, remembrance or loss.
The price tag that we pay for jewellery is based on rarity, gold content, workmanship and design. That is how we justify our purchase. Delivery of these one of a kind pieces make it symbolic. No other durable goods, computers, smartphones or cars for example, have lasting power. These shiny baubles mark special occasions, promises, commitments and milestones for many years to come.
So this spring, if you are looking for something special, for mother’s day, christening, confirmation, graduation, birthday, anniversary, wedding or just because, remember Ringleader Fine Jewellers. Create your own lasting legacy.
