Mysterious Memorabilia

A box was sitting in his room when he got back. It definitely wasn’t his box; it was too girly. It was a wooden box with intricately carved patterns all over it. There were flowers and even a rainbow on the lid. Definitely not a man’s box.
Despite his aversion to it, he was curious. He sauntered across his room to investigate. He picked it up off his bed and sat down with it. It was about the size of a book. It was light, though he could hear objects moving around inside.
Opening it he found a note on top. It was made of thick writing paper. Unfolding it, he felt a jolt in his stomach. On top of the paper was an ornate letter ‘R’ embossed on it. There was only one ‘R’ he knew. In neat handwriting that he recognised, were four sentences: “Use them wisely. Think before you act. Be careful. Love always.”
Under the letter were four objects. A small heart made of red crystal, a silver ornamental horseshoe about the size of his palm, a small porcelain elephant, and a gold star pendant.
What on earth was he supposed to use these for? They were lady’s jewellery or ornaments. He was a man, and had no use for any of these things. Use them wisely for what?
If these were supposed to be clue or meant to help him in any way, they were failing miserably.
He felt worse seeing these objects than he had before when everything had happened. It reminded him how many secrets there were and how little he knew.
