For no particular reason, I have jewelry on my mind today.
I guess maybe I am thinking about this because hopefully, in late June, when the planets magically align and SCOTUS (The Supreme Court of The United States) magically grows some balls and FINALLY repeals DOMA – with all due respect to all the female justices – I would like to “officially” marry my significant other.
And it occurs to me that such an event needs to be finalized and marked with a significant piece of jewelry.
Now, as a gay man, there IS no other jeweler besides Tiffany’s. I mean, I remember ordering a $65.00 key chain from Tiffany’s in my late 20’s, just so I could have a “blue box.” Anyway, I was online today and narrowed my choices down to three:
The Etoile – platinum and diamonds. A classic!
Or Paloma’s – as in Picasso – Zellige Ring in infinitely more affordable sterling –
Who knows? Come late June, we may take a trip to NYC or Chicago and buy these guys. It seems like an event that merits a trip, rather than ordering them online, would you not agree?
