Sometimes I wonder about this fascination that humans have with sparkly things. For example, I love shiny, sparkly chrome on my cars, my Harley,and in my garage, and in the house wherever I can put it! When we renovated the kitchen, chrome was not an option, so I sweet talked my wife into stainless steel appliances. In my mind, if I couldn’t have chrome, then stainless steel was the next best thing. Although my wife would have preferred an almond or bisque color, she relented and agreed to the stainless steel color. To be perfectly honest, I think she probably really didn’t care what color the appliances were, as long as they were new and worked perfectly!
For my wife, she is all about sparkly jewelry. She loves to wear large sparkly earrings, and lots of rings. She also has a lot of necklaces, but I really don’t see her wearing the necklaces quite as much as the earrings and the rings. To be honest, though, I’m really surprised that she hasn’t pierced her naval in order to put some sparkly gemstones in her naval! Especially since she enjoys taking belly dance classes!
My wife’s first husband used to work for a store that specialized in rare coins and bouillon metals. He used to bring home a lot of really pretty estate jewelry for my wife to keep if she wanted it. Apparently at that time customers were coming in and selling their family heirlooms to cash in on the rising price of gold and silver. As a result, she has enough emerald cut diamonds 0,40 carat diamonds to last her a couple of lifetimes. As she likes to remind me, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!” She likes to wear a ring on every finger on her hand and I thought that she had enough rings, so when I saw her looking online for north dakota jewelry I was starting to sweat bullets; doesn’t she have ENOUGH of those sparkly stones on her hands and ears?
So when I asked her what she was researching (trying not to let the panic in my voice get the best of me) she told me that she was thinking about researching some engagement ring designers because she has the impression that our youngest son is getting quite smitten with his lady friend and that it might not be too long before they announce to the world that they are planning to tie the knot. My wife is thinking that maybe some of her estate jewelry might be able to be reworked into a pretty engagement ring, or even a pretty right hand ring. It will be interesting to see what she comes up with!
