It's one of those things I didn't think I really wanted until I received it. That little blue/green bag, the pristine white ribbon - opening the box is an experience in itself. It was gift from a client and their generosity was so above and beyond. I was really touched.
I have only a couple pieces of jewellery that have significance to me and that I deem special: a sapphire ring from my aunt, a string of pearls from my father, a diamond/sapphire necklace from a love and now this piece.
A cheapie to the core, I can sometimes see the pleasure and appeal of investing in luxury pieces. You wear them differently, they mean more because you know they'll last forever.
