'TIT'jHERE is a silent language in Gifts of Jewelry which ex
presses more clearly than tongue can tell the real sen
timent which inspired the giver. A Gift of Jewelry is an
appreciated gift?a lasting gift?a gift which gives not only
immediate pleasure, but one which serves to remind the re
cipient that the giver both treasured and cherished the friend
ship which the Gift of Jewelry so feelingly expresses.
A well selected and complete jewelry stock like this affords one the greatest
possible opportunity for putting one's own personality into the gift.
Because a gift is an article of jewelry does not necessarily imply that it is
expensive. Many really desirable and truly beautiful gifts which are inexpen
sive and certain to be more greatly appreciated than larger gifts of less intrinsic
value, may be selected from our stock.
It matters not what you have allotted yourself to spend for gifts this
Christmas, you can spend your allowance to greater advantage in this store.
