Jewelry is much more that a piece of metal. It's something you may feel deeply connected with.
Whether you wish it or no, the jewelry you wear is telling a story about you. Whatever you carry, a fancy or simple jewelry, expensive or not very expensive, it can complete your image and how you feel. This can also show what is important for you, tell about your memories, send a message into the world. Giving a touching, meaningful jewelry gift to your friend can change his or her mood. You can wear a ring of your grandmother and feel a great importance of the family treasure. A piece may be not that valuable or even very beautiful. However, its value can become invaluable to you.

Jewelry has a plenty of functions. Earrings refresh the face, a brooch draws attention to the neckline, a bracelet - to graceful wrists, rings give a special sensuality to the hand.
