As we are exhorted in Exodus to honor our fathers and mothers all the days of our lives, so shall we declare that unswerving devotion to all we meet.

The great grandmother who has seen her descendants in great numbers would beam with pride at a pendant bearing the birthstones of those cherished grandbabies. Choose and design your family jewelry with love, aiming for it to be an heirloom, an outward sign of the strong bonds of affection that bind us so closely.
