Gold symbolizes the timeliness of love, and has been celebrated as the original and authentic symbol of love since as early as 200 A.D.* Gold is a wonderful element to work with in the creation of jewelry. It is durable, maluable, strong and corrosive resistant. These properties assure the wearer of many years of satisfied ownership. Gold is a pure, rare, naturally occurring element. It is so scarce that all the gold ever mined could fit into two Olympic size swimming pools.
