How can one possibly measure love?

AN ART DECO FIVE-ROW NATURAL PEARL NECKLACE
Comprising 116, 116, 119, 121 and 119 graduated pearls to the diamond openwork clasp with rectangular-shaped emerald centre, circa 1930, 39.5 cm long, in fitted green leather case.


AN IMPORTANT EMERALD AND DIAMOND RING, BY HARRY WINSTON

Like this of course.

I don't know what it is, but seeing fabulous jewelry like this makes me feel like I did when I was unmarried and dating; excited, breathless anticipation. I wish I was spectacular enough to wear such pieces. Since I'm not, I don't have to worry about financing the purchase.
