Beauty That Glitters

Apr 1, 2008
Women love to wear jewelry, which is a known fact around the globe. It's an old tradition for women to wear accessories as they are expected to always look good. But with the change in time you'll also notice men wearing accessories, like bracelets, chains, finger rings, and even earrings which have become a fashion statement.

Take a look around and you'll understand how much the jewelry industry has expanded over the years. These days both men and women have become conscious of their looks i.e., whatever they wear should make a style statement. With the growing demand for something new in the fashion business, wearing accessories have also now became a necessity.

Metals like gold, silver and precious stones like diamond, ruby etc are used in making ornaments. They are used not only because they make the ornament look beautiful but also because they carry certain significance in certain cultures. Like for example, wearing gold in India is considered to be auspicious for the person wearing it.

Pearls also have been used widely for making jewelry. Jewelries made of pearl look beautiful and they also have a class of their own. They are equally expensive and make a style statement. Earlier only certain category of people like the royal families could afford to buy pearls but now with the increase in demand for pearl ornaments they are also made affordable.

Personally, I am in the favor of jewelry that is chunky. Most women see chunky ornaments as inelegant and loud. I think otherwise. It is my opinion that the traditional accessories developed by rural women of older times were one of the best that were ever created.

To give you an example of what I am talking about, let me talk about a necklace that I recently purchased. It has many tribal faces dangling from it. I know that sounds corny. But I do not buy ornaments for how they sound to my readers! Instead I focus on the special message that the artisan was conveying through her or his creation. I would go to the extent of saying that the run of the mill jewels that are machine made are lacking in character.

In addition, one more important aspect of jewels is that they can be a valuable investment. If they are made of rare metals, pearls or precious stones, they quite likely will appreciate in value over the long term. This potential for appreciation is one of the exceptional features of buying jewels. There are very few other forms of fashion accessories that could possibly increase in value - even if you used them in the interim period.

All in all, what I would recommend is that if you're buying ornaments, you should be careful about not overpaying for the brand. Try to focus on valuable raw material, original design and the opportunity to resell the asset back to the place you bought it from.
