Jewelry Boxes: A Deeper Meaning

What is in a jewelry box? Is it just jewelry items such as necklaces, earrings, rings and other types of miscellaneous jewelry? If the answer to the question was yes, then there is a small issue. It does not just hold a person’s jewelry collection, but it embodies it and is an extension of you and the choices you have made up to this point. Let’s dig a little deeper into this situation.

As previously stated, a jewelry box says a lot a person and the choices they have made in their life. While on the surface it may not seem as if there is much to read into, below lies lots of meaning and hidden messages. A good example would be a diamond necklace in it. Think about how you got that diamond necklace. Was it from your husband, friend or did you purchase it yourself? If it was from someone, what was the occasion? Was it in celebration of something? Could it have been a necklace given as an apology? These questions may not have simple answers and you may not like the feelings that are stirred up when thinking about things like this. In order to read deeper as to what is in your jewelry case, you need to answer these questions, as the jewelry inside of it is really a nice snapshot into the past.

Now that you have answered questions about a necklace in your jewelry box, now it is time to move on to something much more common and important, the rings in a jewelry box. Most jewelry boxes come with ring rolls, allowing for storage and many types of rings. While these rings may be worn as fashionable items daily, they too possess deeper meaning. Think about the engagement ring in the jewelry box. Think about how you felt the first time your now husband or fiancé, got down on one knee and opened a small jewelry case containing something symbolizing the love that you share for one another. Look at the wedding band, symbolizing the strength and bond you made on your wedding day.

These are just a few ways to really take a look back at your life and reflect on the choices you have made throughout your life. While it may seem silly at first to look into a jewelry box for your past and determine what kind of person you are, the answers to these question are in there, you just have to look hard enough.
