True Story: How Having an Organized Jewelry Armoire Lead to a Beautiful Gift

This is a true story I wanted to share.  When my parents recently celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary my father was in need of a gift for my mother.  He knew she likes jewelry, but he did not know exactly what to get her.  My mother has organized her jewelry in a jewelry armoire (a video of my jewelry armoire can be viewed here).  This enables her to easily view and choose her jewelry from day to day.  

Here’s where the story gets cool: as I said, my dad did not know what to get her.  He decided to look in my mom’s armoire to see what kind of items she already had.  He noticed that she had a significant number of blue and green pieces.  He took this tidbit of information to the jewelry store with him and decided to keep away from blue and green jewelry.  

Now, I’m sure you’re dying to know what he chose: an amethyst (purple) pendant.  It is beautiful!  Dad’s creative way of acquiring information lead to a thoughtful gift and memorable story!  Being able view my mom’s jewelry inventory before shopping also reduced the likelihood of buying a duplicate piece she may have already had (or a very similar piece).  Points to Dad!
