Jewelry is universal. You have one piece of jewelry. I have one. We have one. At LEAST one. It can be sophisticated as a Lalique piece, or simple as a shell on a string, we can have both, and love them equally. It can be a status symbol, show our wealth, our good taste, our power, can be a token of love or friendship, a talisman. Its meaning can be obvious for all or hidden, and undestandable by us alone, and whatever happens, it carries several stories: the one its creator imagined, the one we forged around it, the ones the others see in it...
Never be fooled, a piece of jewelry tells always more than one story about you, and you can't control them all. By nature, a piece of jewelry is indiscreet. Maybe that's why we love them. And then... maybe not.
This blog is a journey in the world of human adornments of all sorts and jewelry in particular. It is about their stories across the ages and the continents. About their wearers. Their collectors. Their writers. Their creators. The old ones. The new ones. It is about everyone. Them. Us. Me. It is about YOU
