How to Choose Jewely to Send Messages About You

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Putting on a lot of shiny and eye-catching rings, chains, or other accessories sends a certain message of the need for others to see you, or that you want the attention by others. This acknowledgement or seeking of the focus to be on you somehow appears that there could be something missing, a void in your life.Perhaps, by having this jewelry on, a certain sense of importance may be felt or discovered. As the saying goes, if it feels good, it must be right is not always true. In fact, this could be a very disappointing philosophy or self-motto. There are consequences for choices and just because the moment feels right does not imply that the decision was a good one.

Wearing a lot of items for show, to get attention, or to give some credence to the notion of being seen means being popular and thereby getting attention. This misnomer can, and has brought embarrassment to many people over time. Flashy is rarely appealing to the average person. If you have grown up in rural America or spent any time learning the cultures of small town, U.S.A., you would understand just how insignificant the meaning of being flashy really is and how unimpressive it appears to others.

Finding the need to show off jewelry and make sure others take notice sends mixed messages. Is the person with all of the necklaces, rings and bracelets insecure about how they may look without the gold, diamonds or silver fine pieces? Does this person feel that they are better than others just because they can afford such luxury jewelry?

These two questions are more commonly thought of than some may want to admit or care to consider. While there are those in the world who place their status in life above others because they do not have to experience the challenges of living in a low or middle income household. Having money to afford the more elegant things in life can influence the behavior of some that exudes an arrogant attitude.

Conversely, there are also those who have the ability to be a very down to earth person and be one of the wealthiest people in a region or country. Being insecure about yourself does not improve just because you can afford to slip on some fancy jewelry items. Insecurity is an internal struggle with some people that has affects on behaviors. It does not make them a bad person, only one who needs to improve upon some character flaws.

Is it safe to receive a diamond in the mail?

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Yes and no. It is safe if the diamond jeweler uses insured carriers (e.g., FedEx and UPS) to ship its packages and all shipments are insured for the full value of their contents.

Before buying a diamond online, find out what the store’s policy is in case of lost shipments. A professional diamond jeweler should have no objection to providing either a replacement or a refund.
