What would you do for love?

"There really is nothing else quite like it.
We read more books, watch more films
and listen to more songs about it than anything else.
It quickens the heart, lights the soul and makes us whole."

As I already posted in last several posts, this Summer my boyfriend and I moved to a new apartment in Barcelona but also into a new Summer home in Dubrovnik so this Summer was all about packing, unpacking, cleaning and decorating for us. The good part of moving into a new place is that you are forced to go through and organize all your stuff and get rid of the stuff you really don't need anymore. 

My favorite part of settling into a new place was unpacking my photo albums and my jewelry. I peaked into each of these little precious boxes of earnings, necklaces, bracelets and rings and with this I opened mostly fond memories connected to the jewelry piece I was unpacking.

Most of my jewelry I got as a gift. Some of it is connected with gentle, loving, positive emotions while some make me a bit sad as I reminisce, such as my late grandmothers pearl earrings. 

For centuries people have been gifting jewelry as a symbol of love, a promise, friendship or appreciation. No matter the value, jewelry symbolizes the gift of heart, a gift of emotion which intensifies and revives with each wear.  

I often find myself impulsively clinging on my heart necklace whenever I watch my boyfriend play an intense basketball game, when I feel proud or when I just miss him for being away for home on a longer trip for a number of days in a row. Every morning I am putting it on my neck it feels like I am getting a big hug from my boyfriend no matter if he is home or not at the time. When I put it on, I feel fully dresses and ready to go about my day.

When I first discovered Michael Hill Jewelry, the historic brands vision and direction of designing and crafting contemporary jewelry collections really hit home as they simply 'get it'. They know how to show emotion in a way that is bigger then words and their jewelry design caters to a whole rainbow or emotions, types of love, type of people and gifting purposes. The brand was founded in 1979 in New Zealand by entrepreneur and visionary Michael Hill and since it has expanded globally. 

"When given it’s an expression of love.
Young love, old love, motherly love, straight love,
gay love, forbidden love, brotherly love, it seals
love, nurtures, creates, kindles and declares love
for all the world to see."

"We don’t care what kind of love
you’re into, we just want to make
sure you get your fair share."
