A promise of foreverness
The most valuable things in life—those spelled out in prayers and promises—are hard to hold on to. Love, memories, and pride are as large as they are invisible. Still, we don’t want to leave the house without them. In come the rings, pendants and lockets. Like a story carries meaning and a woman carries her child, jewelry carries what is most valuable to us. It’s the materialisation of meaning. It’s the big ‘Thank You, Darling’, wrapped in a diamond. It’s a promise of foreverness whispered in an earring, for your ears only. Tiny, but telling.
