Did You Know that Holding Hands has a REAL Meaning? #Video, #expert

Apparently when the Beatles sang, “I Wanna Hold Your Hand,” they were really onto something. According to data compiled by Wakefield Research for Forevermark US,94% of Americans confirm a deep connection between handholding and long-term relationships.


The results show, more than gifts or words, holding hands is a simple, universal gesture of a promise that truly communicates our most precious emotions. This back-to-basics mentality is also being seen in the latest jewelry trends, particularly among the Millenial generation. Jewelry expert and romance enthusiast, Adelaide Polk-Bauman, gave me some insight into the results of the study and share with viewers how they can deliver this heartfelt gift to the one they love as well as the fashion “value” of wearing diamond jewelry day to day.

Adelaide talks about the following statistics:

Moody Moves
Holding your sweetheart’s hand can change everything. 96% of Americans agree; when their significant other holds their hand their mood immediately improves

Together Forever
What you do as a couple can mean more than what you say. People who hold hands often (4-7 days per week) believe their relationship will last nearly twice as long as those who hold hands less often (0-3 days per

Relationship Satisfaction
71% of people who hold hands often say they are completely satisfied with their relationship, compared to just 35% of those who hold hands less often.

First Things First
For many couples, holding hands can lead to something more. 56% held hands in their relationship before kissing or saying “I love you.” But younger couples seem to have more of a way with words. 17% of those 18-39 said “I love you” first, before holding hands or kissing, compared to just 8% of those 40-59, and just 4% of those 60+.

Back to Basics
The current trend among younger people is reflected greatly in the gifts they buy. Jewelry is reflecting a more traditional style; simple three stone rings, diamond studs and diamond bracelets with simple, clean designs.
