Thinking about this ancient practice, made me contemplate the Neck itself and what it is that is so special about such!
Necklaces have been an integral part of jewellery since the time of ancient civilizations and pre-date the invention of writing. So, what, I asked (the internet) is all that about?
When you break it down 2 words appear, “neck” and “lace” …. hmmm, let’s take a closer look…
The neck is the part of the body, on many terrestrial or secondarily aquatic vertebrates, that distinguishes the head from the torso or trunk.
So my supermodel above doesn’t have a torso in the traditional sense, but would probably need to win the Lotto, just to be able to buy enough necklaces to cover her neck.
Now it’s true that, even if not equal to the Lotto prize, anything of value these days will cost an arm and a leg. We would consider the price worth it, if one can keep the Neck…., and if the reason one is investing in a valuable item, is based on something really important and the goods are wonderful quality items.
Therein lay the conundrum. I asked myself, if I were a supermodel with a beautiful neck, why would I want to adorn it with something valuable?
So, after much thinking, I found my answer in the 2nd part of the word “necklace” … and hey – pay attention people …. (we are doing the Latin mumbo-jumbo again)! The etymology of the word “lace” is from Middle English and from Old French “las”, noose, string; probably akin to the Latin “lacere”, to entice or ensnare.
Now I am starting to understand!
So, it works like this … if you want to ensnare or entice a love-partner and care-for/save the future of this long-necked-supermodel (the wild animal, of course!), then I suggest you find at a love-catching device, which fits the perfect description of:
- Beautiful neck
- Save the animals
– What can I say …… Get out there & Entice !!
