What Does Jewelry Mean To Me?

Valerie and Manoli Savvenas

After being in the jewelry business for 33 years I asked myself this question. What does jewelry mean to me?  I am around jewelry all of the time and I love it and I understand the investment and intrinsic value but…..mostly…

I remember my MOM buying me my first diamond ring when I was 6…she did this for all of the girls.  We were poor…I guess that is the right word for it, although I didn’t know we were poor.  My parents were divorced and we lived with my wonderful Grandparents.  But that ring was something special.  I lost it many years later but the memory and meaning is still with me.

I remember buying my own real 14 karat opal earrings after I had my first real job at 18.

Manoli & I walked Bergenline Ave in Union City, New Jersey looking for wedding bands back in 1973.  He was a pro. wrestler back then and not back into the jewelry business….yet.  We purchased plain milgrain edged bands for our wedding.  We still have them.

I remember him trying his best to hide my 2 carat diamond ring from me until we could get to Greece and give it to me on our tenth anniversary.  He gave it to me on a balcony overlooking the Agean Sea in Rhodes, Greece.  I still wear that diamond today…28 years later.  I have remounted it a few times since then.

So I remember those early purchases and milestones and I think that is the most important part about jewelry…the memories.

What do you think?  Think about it….and feel free to comment.  I would love to hear your thoughts.
