When Jewellery Makes a Place in Your Heart
There are those few times when you have nothing to do and you just sit back and observe those around you. That is the time you notice how those two gold bangles on your mother’s hand jingles delicately every time she brings a dish to the table. Or how on one particularly sunny day, the sun managed to catch that lovely diamond nose stud on your sister’s face and she looked particularly radiant when watering the garden.
Memories are not always made of milestone incidents. They often comprise of the smallest personal traits that tend to stand out when you least expect it. When your children are all grown up and gone, the sounds of the little bells on anklets, as young children run past your window, will conjure up so many memories of a time gone by.
You may not realise this, but often jewellery plays an important part creating memories that are so uniquely yours. Like for example, the emotion that is attached to a wedding choker that has passed down the family for generation. When it adorns one bride’s neck in one generation and welcomes another, at another point in time, it heralds the start of an era.
Or that first little piece of jewellery that adorns the hands of little babies, which make for gorgeous keepsakes.
You too, can create memories that go a long way. A pair of dazzling earrings that you can pick up to go with that saree your partner bought. Or you could gift your mother a pair of bangles that she can start wearing again, just for the joy of hearing them clink when she hugs you. Try setting a tradition with the young lady in your home and gift her a charm bracelet—the key being that you add a charm to it each year till a milestone year.
There is just so much you can do to make memories that you will carry with you for the rest of your life! And you can make a start at Jos Alukkas Jewellers this Women’s Day.
