Why do we develop feelings / affection towards our jewels?
Posted on December 18 2018
Receiving a jewel as an inheritance has a great sentimental meaning, it connects us with the most important moments and situations of the people we love and strengthens the bonds between the women of the family. Behind a jewel there is always a motive, a celebration, a past that lasts through time and arrives to our jewelry box in the form of a ring, earrings or necklaces.
It is not necessary to have the jewelry box of the Bourbons to know that this beautiful jewelry piece that has been passed on to you is part of your family DNA. It was the ring which made your grandmother gave a definite yes, a yes of which you are a consequence. Or those earrings that your mother received when you were born. And why not? That beautiful Golden Tangerine silver pendant that you have chosen today to tell your sister that although she will move to another city, she will always be in your heart and will count with your protection. Yes, today is hardly a jewel, but in a few years it will be a family jewel filled with meaning.
What makes a small piece of gold or silver become a piece with a high sentimental meaning? First, the design of the jewel itself, that ability to be unique and lasting in memory. Then, the importance of the moment in which it was delivered and received. And finally, the emotional and symbolic load that we impregnate in that piece.
Did you think that family jewels were just a matter of royalty? No, and if they do not exist in your jewelry box, you can start now with that beautiful tradition, which your daughters, nieces and granddaughters will be a part. To get you started we leave you with just one piece of advice: earrings, bracelets and brooches are usually the items that most easily end up becoming a family inheritance.
