Trying On Tiaras
My colleague is shopping for jewelry for his wife. I amuse myself by trying on Bangladeshi wedding jewelry – ornate necklaces dripping with crudely cut jewels, dangling earrings almost too heavy to wear and tiaras. TIARAS! Beautiful gold tiaras sparkling with emeralds and rubies and other gems of which I don’t know the names. The salesmen are amused by my delight. Even though they know I won’t purchase anything, they continue to bejewel me and laugh at my excitement.
