Christmas & Jewelry - A Sparkling Combination

Ever since I was a kid, I have loved everything about the Christmas season...the music, the food, family, memories made and of course the gifts! Now don't get ahead of me here...I'm not talking about receiving but the "giving of gifts". Many folks are just like me and they love to see the look on the face of the receipient of their gifts...that smile, that look of surprise, appreciation & love....that just says it all! Even after having been married for nearly 20 years and having been in the jewelry business for 25 years, Angie my wife still loves to receive the gift that sparkles....fine jewelry!!!

Of course, jewelry comes in all sizes, tastes, designs and certainly, one item doesn't fit all. Diamonds are always an appropriate gift because of the things they represent: durability (your love endures forever), fire (the excitement of your relationship), beautiful clear white color ( the perfect gem for all occasions) the cutting or faceting (representing all the facets of you and your loved one's life). Lets also not forget about gold & silver, long treasured for their intrinsic value & worth (can show the worth & value you put on your relationships). Gemstones of all colors of the rainbow in a wide array of jewelry such as bracelets, earrings, rings, necklaces...you name it...there is a gemstone for everyone (lets not forget that everyone has a birthstone!) Each anniversary has a gemstone assigned to it as well as the tribes of israel in the Bible (each has a gemstone).

So you see, jewelry truly can represent many important facets of your life and its an enduring gift that lasts for years! I love to see families pass jewelry down through the generations as family heirlooms....what a great tradition! Let me make a suggestion...why not start a new family tradition with a new jewelry heirloom to be passed down and treasured for many generations with the gift of fine jewelry this Christmas? Above all else, lets not forget to treasure those who mean the most to us this season.......
