Rich families usually possess a considerable quantity of gold jewellery and coins, it is a symbol or sign of their wealth and power and it has been like this since remote times. If you belong to this category, you must have a personal treasure passed down the line by your ancestors, and increased by the gifts of husband, children and business associates.

Middle class families also have inherited a few pieces of jewellery from their mothers or grandmothers. They usually cherish it as a very precious possession, which will most likely be given to their daughters in heritage. Maybe your fiance bought you an engagement ring or a gold bangle, or your husband did.

There is such a thing as a Gold Marriage. Before the 21 century, it used to be very common for married couples to stay together all their lives. Divorce was very rare and considered a mishap. People had pride in committing to each other for life. To celebrate their union, they would even publicly remarry when they reached the 50th anniversary. The attendants to the gold wedding shower ceremony would bring gifts of gold to the happy couple. Spouses would also give each other gold gifts, such as new wedding rings or a gold bracelet, necklace or chain, sometimes engraving the date of the event or their spouse’s endearing name in it. This was not only a token of respect and appreciation for 50 years of love and friendship, but also an investment to be passed on to their descendants. Sadly, nowadays is not as common for a couple to reach their 50th anniversary. Maybe you are not rich, maybe you didn’t inherit jewellery from mom, maybe you divorced your husband and never had a special gold gift given to you. You worked hard, sacrificed a lot, lived and loved a lot, had little time to yourself, and now you are getting older…

If this is the case, why not buy yourself a present? It is not a sin, you know. You deserve it. If nobody thought about you, it is time you do it. Go buy a gold bracelet, a nice big bangle, something you can wear with anything and show off to your friends and relatives. It is an investment for your future and you deserve to enjoy yourself and to have that beautiful gold bracelet. Go get it!
