Lost in pearls

I was sorting out my jewelry box and I took few pictures. Later on I wanted to find a quote to attach to the pictures and I must say, there are so many lovely sayings about precious stones that it was hard to choose only one! If you have a favorite jewelry quote, do share with me, please! Enjoy!

Do not judge from mere appearances; for the lift laughter that bubbles on the lip often mantles over the depths of sadness, and the serious look may be the sober veil that covers a divine peace and joy. The bosom can ache beneath diamond brooches; and many a blithe heart dances under coarse wool. ~Edwin Hubbel Chapin

Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

If wisdom and diamonds grew on the same tree we could soon tell how much men loved wisdom. ~Lemuel K. Washburn

Gold cannot be pure, and people cannot be perfect. ~Chinese Proverb

Mysterious opals contain the wonders of the skies – sparkling rainbows, fireworks, and lightning, shifting and moving in their depths. ~Author Unknown

The most precious jewels are not made of stone, but of flesh. ~Robert Ludlum

Sparks of pink tourmaline, green jade, amethyst, and blue sapphire flash through the cloud of my being, like shooting stars in a cobalt sky. I shed the pyrite, lead, hematite, the heavy, the dross. Lost in a whisper of indigo dreams, like a gray sparrow feather – I  float through Eternity, a fragile-strong willow-wisp of joy. ~ Jamie Dedes

    Lovely jewels! Especially the purple one! And is the heart shaped jewel a pendent?
    The quotes are lovely too!

  2. Jamie Dedes Says:

    All the quotes are wonderful (thanks for including me), but I love the Chapin most.
    Lovely photos. I’m glad you didn’t lose all your jewelry. Lovely purple – the color of spirit I think!
    Happy day…
    … and thanks for your kind words.

      I’ve already taken the jewels photos when I read your last poem and I knew right away it will go together with my post :) I’m glad they didn’t take my camera, I’ve been trying to use only my own photos in my posts! Happy day to you too!

    Lovely. Now you’ve got me thinking. What came to mind immediately was the gospel quote about the “pearl of great price.”

    Hello Blaga! Here are the quotes I found for you :D

    “The earth is like a beautiful bride who needs no manmade jewels to heighten her loveliness.”

    And for your pearls:
    “All art is autobiographical; the pearl is the oyster’s autobiography.”

    Have an afternoon tea with me while we glance at these beautiful collection of yours.

    Wonderful pictures and quotes! Here is a good quote about jewels that you may not have heard. :)

    “The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.” ~ Salvador Dali
