Jewelry is more then metal and gems, it has a definite emotional content. When you are given a piece of jewelry by someone for whom you care deeply- there is an emotional charge to the piece. It’s like a small time machine connecting you to the person, the event and the circumstances involved in the exchange. You can look at or feel the piece and it will take you right back there. If the person that gave you the piece has hurt you- it will be extremely difficult to wear it again. You can hold a piece of jewelry in your hand and feel the connection to the person you received it from. The same way that a smell or a song can transport you to another place or a forgotten memory, there is a mystical aspect to the gift of jewelry. When you give the gift of jewelry you are actually performing subtle magic.
