Paula's Thoughts on Romance
I’ve been finding myself thinking a lot lately about romance in all of its forms. I definitely consider myself a hopeless romantic and so it’s really fitting that I gravitated toward this profession, in which I get to experience romance in all its forms on a daily basis. And when I say “romance,” I don’t mean only the feelings between two lovers, but also the romance we experience in every aspect of our lives and in every relationship we have. Romance is a feeling but it is also a way of looking at the world and seeing the beauty in even the smallest things. Some have termed this “rose-colored glasses,” but I have always preferred to look at the world this way: to savor a smile from my daughter or feel the morning air on my face, to come home after a long day of work to a thoughtfully prepared meal and a bottle of wine. I believe that there is romance in all of these things. I see romance in the young couple excited to design their wedding bands and the couple who have been married for thirty years who are finally getting the ring that they truly wanted when they first met. Real romance is sustaining and it is the glue that holds all of our relationships together. After all these years, romance is still what I live and breath for and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Being a jeweler helps to satisfy my romantic heart. I am so excited to design and create a piece of jewelry for Valentine’s Day! I’m still at the drawing board but I’m really excited about what I’ve come up with thus far. What shape this will take: whether multiples, a limited edition or just one very special piece, I have yet to decide, but let’s just say I know my heart’s in the right place.
As they say in the two languages of love, Italian and French: “Totto il mio amore” and “Tout mon amour.” All my love!
