Many people opt to complete a look with some earrings, necklaces or bracelets. In fact, the use of gems and gold can be traced all the way back to ancient civilizations. Jewellery has crossed over countless margins of religion, class and gender.
Where does the attraction to jewellery come from? It may well be about distinction, about standing out in the crowd. The rarer the jewel one owns, the greater the status they possess. Jewellery can thus be a means of increasing self-esteem.
