…and here’s why. He handed me this red box. An early Valentine’s present he said.

And here’s what was inside the red box.

This is called the celestial diamond necklace. It’s a depiction of The Pleiades, a constellation also known as the Seven Sisters. According to Greek mythology, when the sisters were pursued by Orion the Hunter, Zeus answered their prayers for help by transforming then into doves, and later into stars. The necklace is a depiction of the magic of the universe. There are seven diamonds, one for each sister.

And here I am wearing it (I got my hair cut this evening, which explains all the little bits of hair on my neck).

Roger gave me the cross last year…just because. It’s a Roberto Coin. His trademark is placing a ruby on the inside of each of his jewelry pieces. It’s based on an Egyptian legend that “a ruby touching your skin brings you great happiness and good fortune.” A ruby is always positioned closest to the skin in keeping with the ancient Egyptian legend symbolizing prosperity, beauty, happiness, and health.

Thank you Mr. Wonderful!

Until next time!
