There are so many gift giving opportunities each year:
Holidays, birthdays, anniversaries.
Not to mention, weddings, baby showers, graduations, promotions, celebrations and births.
With all these gifts to give, what gift works the best?
Jewelry! Of course.
Why is jewelry the best gift to give?
For multiple reasons:
Jewelry is meaningful
Every piece of jewelry tells a story. “We bought this on our cruise to Hawaii.” “My niece gave this to me for my graduation from medical school.” “My best friend bought this for me when my dog died.”
Jewelry touches our hearts. It impacts our lives. It’s like a marker along the way. A milestone that you will cherish and remember always.
Jewelry is romantic
Just about every single piece of jewelry that’s given as a gift is given for romantic reasons.
How about the diamond stud earrings you got on that moonlight walk? What about the heart pendant you received on Sweetest Day? The anniversary ring for your 25th wedding anniversary? The emerald earrings you got ‘just because‘.
Jewelry is a gift from the heart. Nothing touches us quite like jewelry does. Jewelry takes your breath away. The beauty. The sparkle. It’s like a million stars in the sky.
Jewelry unites couples (like these couples jewelry, pendants and rings here). It makes men get down on one knee. It paves the way for “I do’s” all across the globe. When you think romance, you think promise rings, engagement rings (like these here at James Allen), wedding rings, anniversary rings, eternity rings, bridal party gifts… Jewelry is like the entire romantic package all rolled into one.
Jewelry lasts a lifetime
You can put a ring on your finger when you’re 20, and still be wearing that same ring 80 years later. It lasts a lifetime, your lifetime. Jewelry is intimate. It follows us through this adventure on earth. It holds onto us. It’s a part of who we are.
Just ask anyone who accidentally leaves their rings at home “I feel naked without them.“
Jewelry becomes a part of us. It’s amazing how much we connect and depend on our adornments. They make us feel good. They make us smile.
Rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets, we can’t live without them.
They bring out our personality; fun, creative, bold, artistic. They show us where we’ve been and where we’re headed. Jewelry is a personal journey for us. We love our diamonds and gold.
Diamonds are forever
You couldn’t put your money into any other object on earth and have it look brand new forever. That’s the most awesome thing about diamonds. That’s why they’re worth every penny. They’re eternal. Just like your love. They won’t scratch. They won’t dent. They won’t wear down. They really are invincible.
Jewelry can be traded up
If you don’t like your rings ten years from now, you can trade them in, exchange them, sell them, whatever. Jewelry holds value. Barter with it, pawn it, custom design a new piece (sometimes we just need an upgrade).
We are always on the quest for bigger and better items: houses, cars, that huge 4K hd smart tv. Jewelry is no different. Super size that diamond. Trends change, fads come and go, jewelry is always on the move too. Don’t like it? Tired of it? Get something new.
You can’t do that with flowers or chocolates.
Jewelry can be passed down
Jewelry is one of the few items in life that gets passed down from generation to generation:
- Your grandfather’s pocket watch
- Your Grandmother’s wedding ring
- Your mom’s pearl necklace
These items are dear to us. They hold sentimental value. To us, they are priceless. They can’t be replaced. Just looking at them brings back a flood of memories. What a great remembrance. You can touch it. Feel it. They connect you with your loved ones. They make you feel close.
“I wear my mom’s locket above my heart.”
So you see, jewelry isn’t just a normal gift. It’s the best gift in the world. It touches our whole life. It makes us who we are and shows us where we’ve been.
But, above all else, it creates a lasting bond. A deep satisfaction. It makes our heart beat fast. It makes our eyes sparkle. It lifts our spirits. No other gift can do that. Nothing else lasts as long or means as much. Jewelry is the ultimate gift.
Give jewelry for your next occasion. Earrings on New Years eve. A heart necklace on Valentine’s day. Baby bootie charms for your first born. A mother’s ring on mother’s day. A birthday bracelet. An anniversary watch…
See, it’s like a story of your existence laid out in diamonds and gold.
If you have a special event coming up, or just want to make your own special occasion, do me one thing…
You’ll be happy you did…
For the rest of your life.
