We like them.
We wear them everyday.
We’re talking about J-E-W-E-L-R-Y!
Did you hear about the 4mm tiny gold bead that could be the world’s oldest gold artifact discovered a week ago?
I don’t know about you, but it makes metal lovers like us excited and curious.
Why do you wear jewelry? What does jewelry mean to you?
Jewels were always part of human culture. Even from the times when humans first started using clothes and tools some 100.000 years ago, jewels were produced from any kind of materials that were available – stones, animal skins, feathers, plants, bones, shells, wood, and natural made semi-precious materials.
As the time went on, advancing technology enabled artisans to start taming metals and precious gems into works of art that influenced entire cultures and many modern jewelry styles.
However, no matter how long it’s been, the purpose of wearing jewelry always remained the same – they enabled wearer to express himself/herself non-verbally and showcase wealth, rank, political and religious affiliation, or affections toward someone.
No matter how old or young you are, jewelry has been to express yourself, and show who you are and your affection toward someone. That’s why we wear jewelry.
Jewelry is your statement to the world without words from your mouth. Showing is much more powerful than talking about it.
What do you wear to express yourself today? What does your jewelry show to people now?
Is that power? Is that your delicacy or prettiness? Is that your determination?
Remember you’re showing who you are everyday.
Make sure people get it. Make sure to wear that represents you. Even if it’s just one tiny piece around your neck, or your wrist, or on your earlobe.
Make sure you show who you are today, and be confident as always!
