All That Glitters
I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. My engagement and wedding ring are basically it. But I have collected a few things over time and along the way. In all of my acquisitions, one thing was always very clear to me. I didn’t like gold jewelry. Really. Up until very recently I would openly tell people how little I liked it. Then a few months ago, I was rummaging around for a piece of jewelry to wear to a party and I realized, as I dug through the disorganized jumble that is my limited jewelry collection, that most of it is gold. Gasp! I’ve no idea how that happened, but I’ve changed my tune towards the precious metal and am embracing this universal act of kismet. Forthwith, a few pieces from my golden treasure box.
