An elegant footed box five inches
in diameter, cushioned in black velvet, exactly
right for your pearls, or a gorgeous diamond
pin, a bracelet or two, things that you wear
often enough so that you want them at hand,
rather than locked away someplace.
I use mine -
I couldn’t resist buying one for myself
- for my wedding band, wristwatch, diamond
studs that I wear almost all of the time and
occasionally my pearls end up in there as well.
It is convenient, lovely to look at, and other
than my housekeeper no one else ever sees it
so I don’t worry about my things not
being locked away. I wear most of them constantly
anyway...I am a believer in small luxuries.
They make me feel good and my bedroom has always
been the room that I wanted to be the most
luxurious in my home. This box helps make it
that. And, after all, who deserves it more
than I do? At least, that is my theory.
box is heavy crystal with silver garlands
of roses for the cage. The lid is beveled
crystal framed in silver, with a medallion
of lovebirds among the branches and leaves
of a tree, in silver, centered on it. An outstandingly
beautiful piece. You will feel cossetted
each time you look at it. I do! And gentlemen,
if you want to make a "true love" kind of gift?
This will do it, every time!

artistry, metamorphosed into works of art.
