An Elephant Never Forgets

“An elephant never forgets.”  You must have heard this old piece of wisdom from your parents or grandparents at some point in your life. If you are not convinced in the truth of this statement, you must watch the video below.  It’s a lovely story of remembering across time.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for humans.  Our memory is not nearly as good as the elephant, so we tend to forget a lot of things throughout our lives. On one hand, this is an advantage, because we can leave some bad memories in the past. On the other hand, however, we sometimes lose moments we would like to remember for a lifetime.

Luckily, there is a way to remember those special times in your life.  A great way to preserve beautiful memories is to engrave them on your jewellery. Of course, we have all heard of pieces of jewellery engraved with text and a lot of people would refer to ‘one ring to rule them all’ from the ‘Lord of the Rings’, but now you can have something more – jewellery with a photo engraved on it and bound to remain there forever.

Of course, you can choose any photo you like; your favourite one, or the one that reminds you strongly of a pleasant moment. Then you can have it engraved on a pendant or other piece of jewellery and never worry that it may fade away.  It will bring memories as long as you wear it. This is your chance to turn a piece of jewellery into your personal memory keeper – always there to remind you of your chosen favourite moment.

This is, perhaps, one of the best ways to preserve a photo with a favourite memory.  Rest assured that it will help you think of the good times and special people whenever you need it.

Why Does Stainless Steel Make Good Jewellery?

What looks like silver but is even stronger, harder to scratch and doesn’t tarnish?

Stainless steel of course! It’s not just for body piercing and dog tags. It is a versatile and durable metal that is the next generation in stylish jewellery pieces.

Even better, as it doesn’t contain nickel, it is nonallergenic, will not colour your skin and can be worn by just about anyone.

Stainless steel is becoming more popular as a metal for funky as well as elegant jewellery pieces that will last a lifetime of normal wear. No need to save it for a special occasion as this almost indestructible metal can be worn every day and requires minimal cleaning and maintenance, unlike other materials that are coated and require regular polishing.

Due to its durability and strength, it is perfect for designs and finishes you wouldn’t consider on other metals that are just not strong enough, like engraving for example. And as pieces are usually carved from a larger piece into the desired design, you are limited only by your imagination and the creativity of the craftsman.

Last but not least, stainless steel is a less expensive option than gold or other more traditional metals used for jewellery. You can afford to have multiple pieces and experiment with different styles with less pressure on your bank balance.

Who would have thought a material traditionally used for kitchen sinks and surgical instruments could look so good?
