From the symbolism of a cross, to the wearing of birth-Stones and lucky charms and the rites and rituals of surrounding engagement and wedding rings- the use of jewellery can denote religious feeling, spiritual belief and ideals of love. In our rational world we may overlook the irrational behaviours we all partake in. Some things can not be explained as languages can fall short of expressing great sentiments and stirring of the soul. Like poetry, jewellery can be considered superfluous. But the world would be less beautiful, less magical and less delightful without is.
