A wisp of fresh perfume filled the air. The
calm notes of citrus and musky undertones of elderflowers linger. She pulls the
slip of her dress over her shoulders and stares straight into the morning mist.
Her Ole Lynggaard Winter Frost ring sparkles, even from the faintest of morning
lights. A breeze drifts across the window sill where she stands, blowing her
auburn hair to reveal the most exquisite of diamond-encrusted Frost earrings in
white gold – 162 diamonds in total. She closes her eyes to embrace it all.
Dreamscapes are her domain. They are the
landscapes for her story to be told where her jewels are the cornerstones of
every chapter like an Ole Lynggaard Frost charm glistening amidst the twirls of
a black leather bracelet. Her mind wanders across the fields of fauna – pine
trees the inspiration. She could possibly have been in a Scandinavian
countryside or Yosemite Valley but one thing’s for certain: the jewels that she
possesses represent an intimate part of her life, each jewel chronicling a
story of love, hope, and faith.
One thing’s for certain and that is happiness
does exist. It is a serene state of mind where vibrant textures and colourful
gems marry into a blissful melody like the silk and gold threads of a CarolinaBucci Twister bracelet or even a rainbow ring of precious gems from AndreaFohrman. For her, these are phases in life, just like each piece of fine
jewellery representing a special fleeting moment but at that instant, a
euphoria of happiness reveals itself.
Wandering off, she gazes back at a
photograph where two hands are clasped together perfectly can be seen. Neither
one of those was hers. Still, she remembers. When there’s a love story, there’s
always the contrary. So it ends abruptly but like a split Maison Margielabracelet or an Asherali Knopfer bar earring that traces a story from one end to
the other, in reality never really ends.
Who is she? She is you and I in another
lifetime, a darling in a story of jewels.
