For all of you men out there who are thinking of giving Valentine’s Day gifts here is a little hint, women prefer their hearts in gold and gemstones rather than boxes of chocolate.  For all of you women for whom I am speaking –try leaving subtle messages, “you ’re cutting back on your sugar intake” might be one you can use while you are pasting your favorite antique, vintage or modern heart jewelry on your fridge or leaving your tablets and phones open to photos around the house.

Jewelry doesn’t contain calories only carats or karats, won’t melt, but will sparkle in the sunshine and will endure with no expiration date. And, in the 18th and 19th centuries, it was a way to express emotions and intentions to loved ones.

Things haven’t changed that much.
