I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”.
But what if I told you that jewelry is more than just bling and dazzle?
What if I told you that jewelry actually helps us connect with one another and makes us better human beings?
Don’t believe me? Here are 3 ways jewelry connects us to each other:
1. Jewelry represents significant milestones and memories in life.
From first piercings to wedding anniversaries, you’ll find all sorts of stories and memories associated with many pieces of jewelry.
Perhaps you’ve inherited your great grandmother’s locket or your mother-in-law passed down her engagement ring to you as a way of welcoming you into the family.
Each piece of jewelry is a great way to remember all the joyful moments you’ve experienced and is a great way to keep the people in those memories alive through the years.
You know how a great accessory can instantly enhance any outfit giving you that much needed extra confidence boost?
The same can be applied with jewelry and conversations!
A genuine compliment about someone’s ring or their eccentric earrings are a great way to break the ice and make new friends.
3. Jewelry is healing.
Did you know that gold is believed to have healing properties including anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and calming effects?
Even gemstones such as rose quartz and jade are believed to aid in fertility, love, and financial abundance.
Specific jewelry can help you set an intention for yourself. So every time you see or wear this specific piece of jewelry, it can be a great reminder of what you desire most in life.
When jewelry is commonly associated with luxury and social status, it’s important to go deeper and understand what makes it worth the investment.
Jewelry is more than just a status symbol.
Jewelry tells us a story.
And these stories are ours to share so we can connect with people more and more.
