THE RELATIONSHIP ISSUE: Your sweetie is pretty deep. Symbolism makes him/her weak in the knees.
THE RESOLUTION: Intellectual antique jewelry.
THE EXPERT: Miko Premo at Isadora’s in downtown Seattle.
THE GIFT: Premo loves snake rings like the ones Queen Victoria and Prince Albert exchanged to symbolize eternal love. Lockets from the Victorian or Edwardian eras evoke a special kind of forever. They very literally convey a kind of close-to-the-heart love.
