Why do We Wear Jewellery?

Wondering why we decorate ourselves with shiny and sometimes colourful objects? Isn’t it obvious? They are just pretty, so what other reasons could there be? Well, we were wondering that too, and went out to get the answers. This is what we found discovered - why we actually wear jewellery.

Throughout history men and women have always been known to decorate our bodies, with everything from tattoos and fancy hair styles, to piercings and jewellery. This is what jewellery was invented for. However, today we wear jewellery for a combination of reasons. It is never just pretty.

Expressing Your Personality

A part of you

When you choose what jewellery to wear, you often try to match it with your personality. Depending on your style or mood, you might wear a statement piece or an elegant bracelet. Jewellery is used to express how you would like others to perceive you. When you select a jewellery brand it is the design and what the brand represents that you match with what you wish to communicate to others about your personality.  

To me, accessorizing is the most fun part of an outfit. While I don’t think you can’t rely on accessories to make a dress that isn’t working work, I do love jewelry and handbags more than anything.

That Little Extra Touch 

As a fashion piece jewellery completes an outfit. You don’t even need all the different types, such as bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Sometimes thats too much. A nice bracelet or a necklace can give any outfit that little extra touch. In our world an outfit is never complete without jewellery, unless of course your going to the gym. 

The Sentimental Value & Reminders

Very often jewellery holds a sentimental value for the wearer. This is often the case, when jewellery is given as a gift or bought specifically to be used for a special moment in once life. We often try to look nice for special occasions in our lives to make them more memorable than the every day life. Many jewellery items are selected specifically to be worn for days we wish to remember, such as weddings, birthdays, graduation, exams and anniversaries. Gifts or special items that we specifically selected for these special days help us remember all the best moments. In a way the memories surround the items and are relived, when we see the item.
