Women have loved jewelry since Eve plaited a daisy chain for her hair back in the Garden of Eden. More specifically, women love Movado 18kt Gold Jewelry
Early pieces were crafted from what was at hand – natural materials like shells, wood, stone or even bone. Anthropologists believe pieces were initially created to keep garments fastened together. A case of form & function over fashion.
But, it didn’t take long for envy to kick in, and pieces evolved into status symbols, showing the world your wealth & position in the community. Soon that bone & sinew clasp wasn’t good enough.
Man developed metallurgy transforming what at first look is plain, even common, into what is beautiful, rare & precious. Gold, silver bronze all began to take center stage. Artisans soon began incorporating gemstones & glass into their work.
The heart appears as far back as ancient times but didn’t become a symbol of romantic love until the Middle Ages. It appears on tapestries & in illustrations, even on playing cards. The Victorians brought it to the forefront, using it on their Valentines, embellishing cards, bouquets, fashion & home decor. It became the enduring symbol of love.
Iain Gately says the heart shape “ is the most commonly recognized symbol on the planet after the cross and the crescent.”
Knowing these traditions, could there be any more beautiful picture of love & devotion than a beautiful 18k gold necklace & earring set in a heart shape? Even better, a heart set within a circle – the perfect symbol of love & devotion.
i carry your heart with me
by e. e. cummings
- i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
