This was how one family's Christmas tradition inspired one husband to show his love with a Hearts on Fire.
It's a Christmas tradition in his house where a fresh alpine is brought home and meticulously decorated with an array of colorful ornaments. The last and final piece to the Christmas tree has always been the star. The responsibility of placing the star belongs to the wife, who always makes sure that the star is arranged just right.
One Christmas, the wife was distraught to realize the star was broken. The couple went shopping for a replacement, "but they just don't make them like they used to," said a disappointed wife, as the couple returned home empty handed. However, on Christmas day the husband presented his wife with a shiny Hearts on Fire diamond star pendant, whispering to her, "because it just wouldn't be Christmas without a star."
Hearts on Fire is available at Shreve & Co. at Palo Alto, California, San Francisco, California, and Portland, Oregon.
