Love is not a palpable thing. It’s not even a thing, it’s a feeling. And as with most feelings, it’s hard to describe it. But luckily for us, it can be translated into beautiful pieces of jewelry.
And when you decide to take the next step and pop the question, of course, you want an engagement ring that speaks of all the love you and your partner feel for each other. You want that magic of love to manifest physically and as beautiful as it is in your hearts.
But how can a piece of metal put together with a gemstone have such an effect?
Some people think that jewelry is something reserved only for big luxurious events.
Let me tell you, though, that this is old news! Jewelry can and should be worn anytime you feel like doing so.
If you choose well, your jewelry will reflect your personality and your character. Wearing Jewelry is also a great way to boost your self-confidence and elevate your look. Ok, so, rings, necklaces, earrings… There are so many options. Are there rules? Are there some pieces I should not wear on some occasions?
Well, you can wear whatever you want, that’s for sure. But there are some things you should take into consideration, such as your routine, the places you go to on a daily basis, the people you’re going to meet, and so on.
So… what should you consider before wearing jewelry?
The relationship between a mother and her kids is that of unconditional love. And love can be shown in simple ways, with ordinary gestures. You can cook her dinner, call her frequently, take her to the movies… the options are really endless.
But when the occasion is exceptional, such as her birthday, jewelry is a really thoughtful gift to consider giving. That’s because jewelry is more than a beautiful and shiny object, it carries sentimental value.
Also, there’s nothing wrong with it being just beautiful and shiny! Indulging a bit to make someone feel even more special is never bad.

Timepieces — or, as they’re also called, wristwatches — offer the perfect mix of function and class.
Plating is the process by which a piece of jewelry made of a particular metal or alloy is covered with another layer of precious metal.
