The Relationship We’ve Had With Jewelry
Jewelry has been on humanity’s journey throughout the millenniums expressing our culture, fashion and individuality. It was present during the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, India and China extending as far back as prehistoric times. For many jewelry was used to adorn themselves with something of beauty or a gift to show affection. For others it was used to indicate wealth, rank, political and religious affiliations.
Jewelry arrests our attention for a few reasons. It’s association with a great and prestigious fashion house or jewelry company. The amazing artistry that went into creating it. The precious metals like gold, platinum and silver used in it’s construction. Then there are the precious and semiprecious stones like diamonds, rubies and emeralds. It’s no wonder why jewelry has been esteemed in the minds of so many.
In the coming months I look forward to showcasing the dazzling collections of jewelry from around the world including those produced by fashion houses like Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel and Dior. Stay tuned.
