The one day of the year that’s specially set aside to celebrate the loves of our life – Valentine’s Day. Below are a couple of suggestions to make the day a little extra special. And a little history of the matchmaker that brought you together.
Want to make her hold her head with excitement? Give her a work of jewelry art by Ayala Bar. This international artist makes beautiful necklaces, pendants and earrings that are one of a kind – just like her.
Moving on to Italy we have wonderful blown glass jewelry from Venice. The perfect way to say “Sei il grande amore della mia vita”. (You are the love of my life.)
And Now a History Lesson
Ah, Valentine’s Day – a beautiful celebration we enjoy every February 14th. The internet is full of Valentine’s Day history – several versions, in fact – depending which web site you happen to land upon.
But who is the instigator behind this romance? – why the Cupid (or Eros) of course. The matchmaker in Greek mythology is Eros – who is usually depicted as athletic with wings. See image above.
Cupid, on the other hand was the Roman counterpart that was often shown as a winged boy or baby (a putto) armed with a bow and a quiver of arrows- but not always – as you can see in the sculpture above.
Stop in and see us soon – our quiver is full of fine gifts that are sure to hit the mark this year.
