A Sophisticate is a Diamond

“Adversity is the diamond dust Heaven polishes its jewels with” Thomas Carlyle 

A diamond as a gift denotes just how special the giver believes the receiver is in their life. A diamond is a rock that has become more than what was expected and the same holds true of a Sophisticate in the 21st Century. A Sophisticate is a diamond because she becomes more than what is expected of her. No matter what she looks like or where she might have come from she continuously evolves with grace, polish, and intelligence. With her intelligence, creativity, and willingness to grow, change, and evolve a Sophisticate continues to grow more beautiful with each day.

There is nothing fake about her. Everything about a Sophisticate is honest. She is honest enough with others that you can see who she really is in her eyes and honest enough with herself that people knows what she wants with clarity. With manners and politeness, she is honest with others about what she doesn't like and what she does like and want.

A Sophisticate is a diamond because she shines. Her heart is big and shines for all who meet her. When she enters a room her smile is genuine enough to brighten and warm those who see her. A Sophisticate has a genuine and fun loving personality that allows whatever she wears to look good. A Sophisticate could wear second hand clothing or rags but it is who she is and her personality that shines through to make whatever she is wearing worthy of another person’s attention. A Sophisticate is like a diamond because she is rare. A true Sophisticate is genuine, kind, strong, and polite.
“A diamond doesn't start out polished and shining. It once was nothing special, but with enough pressure and time, becomes spectacular. I'm that diamond.” Solange Nicole

Wealth does not equal sophistication and neither does being without money. It is her laughter and confidence to be herself that separates her from being like everyone else and allows her to be rare but special. A Sophisticate is a diamond because her value and worth is beyond measure. A Sophisticate is a diamond because she is priceless. ;D
