Just like Rebecca Bloomwood from the famous flick “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” when I shop (for gold) the world gets better. And then, it’s not anymore, and I need to do it again.
In my growing years, unlike other kids, I loved accompanying my aunts and mom to the jewellery store. The flashy lights, bright display of necklaces all around and the glass sections for earrings and finger rings would ignite a spark in me. My wide eyes in aww had more dazzling radiance than the flashy lights of the showroom. I loved how everyone around used to be busy trying something or the other and took opinions from the fellow shoppers.
I dreamt of growing up and owning one huge jewellery store where everything on display would just be mine. That’s another case that I still have that dream in one corner of my heart. For me, gold is not just a piece of adornment but is the reason why I work hard. I appreciate every personal achievement by adding a piece of gold jewellery to my collection.
With time, many other jewellery metals ruled the world. From black metal dominating the jewellery world in the 90s to artificial stone studded jewellery pieces finding their way to glory today, people have accepted every new trend with open arms. However, I am still stuck on gold. And, I don’t see it as a problem. Here’s why I am still stuck on gold.
