Why Do You Wear Jewelry?

We like them.

We wear them everyday.

But why?

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.

history of jewelry1

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!

SHOW WHO YOU ARE!

Start your day with confidence!

Your Queen’s Jewelry

I still remember.

This is a special day. She carefully selects her outfit to wear, she sits down in front of mirror to put on makeups for a change, she does her hair more than just combing, then…

She puts her pearl necklace for the last touch…

The last piece she put on, I knew that was special for her.

When I think about my mom, I think about pearls. Something special about it, isn’t there?

Pearl Jewelry has been popular all around the world for centuries.

Queens and Princesses favored them.

history of jewelry4-1

Queen Alexandra, Queen Elizabeth’s great grandmother, loved jewelry, and she was only ever seen covered in pearls and diamonds. She even popularized pearl chokers!

Consuelo Vanderbilt | The Duchess of Marlborough frequently wore a pearl choker/collar that reputedly belonged to Catherine the Great of Russia and the Empress Eugenie (wife of Napoleon III). In 1918, she donated a “collar composed of 15 rows of the Vanderbilt pearls” valued at $ 25k, to a “children’s jewel fund” of which she was treasurer. During the second decade of the 20th Century she was a leading champion of women’s rights and child welfare causes too (a reason to love her even more).

Remember, the infamous Jackie Kennedy Onassis’s 3 layered pearl necklace?

One of the reasons why pearls are so popular is that pearls are so easy to coordinate, and it goes perfectly with so many different outfits we wear. It matches with so many, but at the same time, it is special. It looks special, it makes you look special, and it makes you feel special.

Princess Diana also had a lot of varieties of pearl jewelry we loved so much.

So many different colors, so many different types, and so many different styles of Pearl jewelry attract the wide range of wearers.

history of jewelry2

The oh-so-elegant Grace Kelly also had several precious pearl jewelry she frequented.

Another thing we love about pearls is that it’s timeless. It was popular centuries ago. It is popular now. It will still be everywhere in the future too.

The pearl earrings, the pearl necklace, the pearl bracelet you received at your wedding, your graduation, or your birthday (june is pearl month!), you will still have it at your 90th birthday, and it’ll still make you look special (and fashionable too of course). It lasts forever!

Jewelry of the Month No.9 Long Earrings

Are you an earring person or a necklace person?

The survey shows that a lot more women in america wear earrings than a necklace everyday. I am personally a necklace person. I wear a necklace almost everyday. There are occasions that I wear earrings too. That’s when I want more attention from people or when I want to feel glamorous. For that, the earrings I wear tend to be big or long, obviously not everyday jewelry. Having something dangling on my ears definitely makes me feel sexier and more confident.
