Has anyone wondered about the “crystal” Edward gave to Bella for her charm bracelet? What was Alice talking about when she questioned the diamonds? Was the charm a real diamond? If so, was Edward lying to Bella? That bothered me. If I'm in the wrong place to ask this, will someone direct the newbie to the correct place? Thanks!
I believe it was a diamond heart. That's why Alice was wondering why Bella was opposed to wearing her engagement ring when she was already wearing a diamond heart from Edward.
I think it was so interesting how SM picked the right objects for Edward and Jacob's charm on the bracelet.
Jacob's was handmade of wood- (to me this makes me picture Jacob outdoorsy, with not a lot of money, good with his hands, crafty and very patient [carving a small piece of wood, takes time and effort]. It also shows how much work Jake had to go through for Bella.
Edward's was a hand me town from his grandmother. (to me this shows that Edward is sentimental, yet his past family had money [diamond], he has great taste, but at the same time when it comes to Bella, he doesn't have to work so hard (except for the part of him trying not to kill her). She just fell in his lap (just like the diamond heart that was inherited from his grandmother) because she loves him unequivocally.
