As I have alluded to in a couple other threads, I am going to be putting my house on the market very soon. I will be moving in with my girlfriend. This has something to do with the question I am posing to the great Throbbing Brain (TM).
If I were to buy a piece of jewelry for my girlfrind, oh... say... maybe a necklace or a ring or something. Let's say a ring. Now, what is it women like? Do they want just another gold ring with a precious gem, or would they like something truly unique?
Gold is so common. It seems to me that it is overdone. What about another, like silver or copper? When I was in grade school one of the projects we did in summer camp was make a ring from a nail. What if I forged a nice ring from wrought iron? Would she appreciate that it was hand made?
Stones are another issue. I am always pleased by the look of polished granite. Maybe a nice piece of pink granite. It could be much bigger than a little old diamond. Other possibilities might be obsidian or maybe a fossil of some sort. What about a shark's tooth?
Anyway, whatever ideas you have to offer....
