    Comments about HEALTH, HAPPINESS, WISDOM RELIQUARY BOX:

    I was searching for the perfect graduation gift and was quite pleased with this keepsake box. It was the right size to move between apartments easily early and its copper look was very artistic. I also like the three words on it of healthy happy and wise. They were accurate yet generic enough I could use it and write a custom note with it. It arrived exactly on time two or three days after the order as promised. I considered something larger but this size really worked well. My daughter loved it for graduation but it would also work for Christmas or a special occasion.

      A beautiful, well made, artist, zen inspired piece. Used this box as part of a gift. Great for that situation where you don't know what to give and actual cash is best. A very nice vehicle to deliver your gift. Decorative ,functional,
      memorable for so many things.

            I can't speak specifically about the use of this since I got it to give as a gift. However, the person to whom I gave it was delighted. It was both heavier and smaller than I expected.

              I bought this box a a gift for my mother-in-law. The box is absolutely beautiful - much nicer looking in person than in the photo. It is quite substantial, not at all flimsy. It is perfect for holding special treasures or the earrings and bracelet I bought to go in it.

                    I bought because I needed a new everyday jewelry holder. I was surprised by how beautiful it is. In Feng Shui, three's are good energy. This piece has three three's! Three words, Health, Happiness, Wisdom. Three turquoise beads and three separate swirl designs on the lid. I absolutely love it!
