Classic Literature, Jewelry Box Style
Whether you are reading them for pleasure or as part of your assigned work in English class, or are reading them for the sheer pleasure of it, the classic works of literature are something many people are exposed to or expose themselves to in order to enrich their lives and minds. They are classics because they have withstood the test of time, and are considered as relevant today as they were when they were first written, no matter how long ago that may have been. Jewelry boxes have made the same achievement, becoming constant and always desired objects despite the ever-changing world around them. What would happen if we combined the two, presenting classic works of literature with a heavy “jewelry boxes” twist?
Moby Dick: Herman Melville’s classic tail of a man who journeys to sea in order to find himself, only to encounter Captain Ahab, a single-minded man who is in relentless pursuit of the most exotic and gorgeous jewelry boxes in the world.
Lord Jim: Perhaps instead it could be called “Lord Gem”. In yet another nautical tale, this time from Joseph Conrad, a man disgraces himself while in the course of his duties and becomes a social outcast. However, he is desperate for a chance to prove and to redeem himself. In his many wanderings, he learns how jewelry boxes can go a long way to restoring a man’s reputation and the good will of others.
The Idiot: Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s monumental work discusses the quest of a simple-minded but morally upright man to fit into the upper echelons of Russian aristocratic society. He, of course, is not the idiot everybody makes him out to be. Even still, it doesn’t take a genius to see the value of jewelry boxes in nineteenth century Russia, which the titular character uses to win friends and influence people.
A Christmas Carol: Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story tells the tale of that quintessential embittered miser, Ebenezer Scrooge. He finally learns his lesson one Christmas Eve night, when three spirits show him Christmases past, present and future, wherein he passed up the opportunity to give jewelry boxes as gifts to those closest to him.
The Moon and Sixpence: In this classic story by W. Somerset Maugham, a well-to-do business walks out on his job and everything else in his normal, conventional life in order so that he may dedicate himself utterly to his true passion, the design and construction of jewelry boxes. Many who know him are at a loss to explain this life decision and are quite perplexed, but those who receive the jewelry boxes he creates have nothing to complain about.
Pride and Prejudice: One of the best know and widely read love stories around today, Jane Austen’s novel detailing the life and loves of upper crust country girls focuses mainly on Elizabeth Bennett, and her early attempts at thwarting the advances of Mr. Darcy, whom she initially greatly dislikes. However, after his displaying his romantic savvy buy giving her the gift of jewelry boxes, how much longer can she keep up her sheen of indifference?
Literature and jewelry boxes: both classy, both timeless, both sure to bring happiness to any discerning connoisseur.
