Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 01, 2013
With the average New Year's resolution being kept less than 60 days, antique jewelry boutique Topazery has a piece of advice for would-be resolvers as 2013 quickly approaches: Don't waste your hard-earned money on a New Year's resolution that won't make it through the winter. Buy an antique ring, necklace, pin, brooch, bracelet or pair of earrings instead. Not only will such a New Year's purchase last for decades, but it will also still be in style as time goes by. The same can't be said for that well-intentioned treadmill that winds up gathering dust in the basement.
According to a survey conducted by the time management firm FranklinCovey in late 2007 (http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/12/31/will-your-resolutions-last-to-february/), a full one in three resolvers will break their promise to themselves before the calendar even hits February. What’s more, 80% of New Year’s Eve vows will eventually go on to be broken, giving them a worse track record than American marriages. In fact, another study conducted by British psychologist Richard Wiseman found that a whopping 88% of those who set New Year’s resolutions ultimately fail at them (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703478704574612052322122442.html).
Despite this sky-high un-success rate, come December 31, people continue to vow to lose weight, exercise more, eat better, etc. And to assist them in their goals, they shell out big bucks for products like pre-packaged weight-loss meals, exercise equipment, gym memberships, and the list goes on. By February, however, more likely than not, they are right back to doing what they used to do, with all that money sucked down the drain, never to be recaptured.
By putting that cash to better use on something that will not only make it through the winter but actually endure for years and years to come, New Year's resolvers can benefit from something money just can't buy: lasting enjoyment and happiness. And an antique jewelry piece from Topazery.com can provide them with both intangibles.
"Most of the antique jewelry pieces we carry have been around for decades and are still in style," explains Topazery Jewelry spokesperson Jan Walden. "That they have so well stood the test of time is a testament to their design and craftsmanship. It's also a reflection that they'll be around for many more years to come, long after most New Year's resolutions are forgotten about."
