Now that Valentine’s is near I though I’d show you the first thing Hannes ever gave me. It was a small jewelery piece, a golden flower with its petals cut out of pink mother of pearl (or nacre) and a small diamond in the middle (A tiny diamond. My little brother loves to stare at this necklace. He often says: Oh, what a pretty flower!.. I think the diamond has fallen out, though. I can’t see it anymore. It’s just that small.).
That was the time when Hannes learned that when buying a necklace with a pendant you also have to buy a golden chain, separately. And that the chain is often more expensive than the pendant itself. Now he knows though=)
