More is Merrier

AAA image ‘Tis the season for giving gifts of meaning and lasting value, because we don’t need any more meaningless things to clutter our life. So, do we need more jewelry?  Well, quality fine jewelry not only communicates the strongest emotions, it retains or increases in value….so more is merrier! First, of course, every woman needs a basic jewelry wardrobe, which has the graceful versatility to go from morning errands to important meetings and elegant evenings.  BTW: for those of you who need some help with your holiday shopping list, I identify the key jewelry items for a basic jewelry wardrobe…

Love Out Loud

A More Confident You = a More Loving You

A More Confident You - Jewelry Activist Every Valentine’s Day, we are reminded to think of those we love. It is also the time that many people experience despair…as they think about their desire to be loved more. We hear it said by experts all the time: we will be loved more if we learn to love more. However, learning to love more is not top of mind for most of us and it is certainly not a quick fix for those in despair; it is a lifelong journey. There are, however, many people, places or things that can provide inspiration and can help us on our journey. When I give thought as to how I can love more, I visualize the ultimate symbol of love- a Diamond. Every woman who receives a Diamond as a gift of love treasures that Diamond Moment for her lifetime. The Diamond says what every woman wants to hear and what many men cannot articulate with words. Yet women also treasure the intrinsic qualities and beauty of the actual Diamond as much as the meaning that the Diamond holds. For this reason, woman today often purchase Diamonds themselves, because wearing diamond jewelry makes women feel more beautiful, more confident and lovable. With that in mind, it is understandable that every woman wants a diamond that is brilliant and sparkles for all to see. Yet a diamond has to go through many phases to reach that point in its outward beauty. We know that most diamonds have inclusions, flaws and rough edges that require polishing. Master diamond cutters do not see these natural diamond characteristics as defects, but rather areas for attention or improvement. Centuries ago, the prolific English writer Daniel Defoe of Robinson Crusoe fame wrote: “The soul is placed in the body like a rough diamond and must be polished … or the luster of it will never appear.” When women purchase and wear diamond jewelry, the feeling reminds us that we are lovable, we are beautiful and most importantly, we are on a wonderful journey. Isn’t it easier to love others when we are at peace and confident with ourselves? Love (like a Diamond) is both reflective and refractive. But in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, which is only days away, I suggest we do more than quietly reflect love onto others. I suggest we LOVE OUT LOUD! This means we should love visibly and openly. Send out your love from a more confident you! This means we should demonstrate our love for humanity as loud and as openly as possible. That love will not go unnoticed and will continue to reflect and refract onto others ..and then from others to more. Also, if we wear Diamonds, we are not only telling the world that we are loved, we are reminding ourselves of our own beauty and internal love…and we will be confident and motivated to focus on loving others. There are so many ways you can enjoy Diamond Jewelry in your life! Diamonds can express every personality and occasion perfectly. Look at all these different options for finely made, high quality, diamond jewelry!
