When you work with jewelry long enough, you learn that it’s not the gold and diamonds that matter so much. It’s not the sparkle and shine. What matters most about jewelry is the connection that is represented by the ring, pendant, or brooch. We choose jewelry to honor our connections to each other. We choose jewelry that connects us to our selves, to our inner vision of who we really want to be. We choose jewelry to ornament our life story, decorating our history as it happens.
Jewelry is powerful stuff, both in terms of style and symbolism. We can choose jewelry for the emotions it evokes in others – admiration, perhaps a little envy? – or for the way it makes us feel when we wear it. Diamonds are their own special kind of armor, or so we’ve been told. Looking good means feeling good.
One of our very favorite things to do is help our customers find special pieces of fine horse jewelry for their milestone anniversaries. Talk about an event that’s all about connections: celebrating the bond that has kept a couple together through the years, good times and bad.
One gentleman came to us, looking for something special for his fiftieth wedding anniversary. He wanted to really surprise her. Over the years, they’d had plenty of horses and you know how that goes: any time there’s an ounce of money available for things like diamond jewelry, someone will need the vet or the farrier or the saddle maker. It was something they joked about, but now, he said to us, “I’m done joking. 50 good years we’ve had. It’s time.”
He had three requirements for us: he wanted gold, he wanted diamonds, and he wanted simple. We showed him the 14K Gold Large Loveheart Horse Pendant. Talk about love at first sight! “That’s it!” he said. “It’s perfect!”
We hear it was a really big hit.
If you’re searching for that special piece of fine horse jewelry to commemorate your milestone anniversary, let us know. We will work personally with you to help you find the perfect piece for the big day. These moments are truly special and should be celebrated!
