Understanding the Importance of Jewelry
Jewelry is something that continues to be prevalent in almost every culture across the globe. Both men and women have been wearing jewelry since the dawn of time; nothing makes a person feel more special than jewelry. Whether it is a pair of earrings, a necklace or a beautiful ring, it is something you will cherish for years to come, and each piece will have its own story to tell.
Jewelry is much more than something used to accent the right pair of shoes. It can be worn to signify wealth, status, religion or as a gift to commemorate your love for someone. There are hundreds of different types of unique pieces of jewelry. It can take people years to find that one piece that truly speaks to them; something that compliments their style and reflects their personality.
Visiting one jeweler after the next can be exhausting. With the immense variety of jewelry to choose from, it is impossible for one jewelry store to have everything you are looking for. One option is to buy your jewelry online. This can save you money and time. Having to deal with a naggy jewelry salesman takes the fun out of jewelry shopping.
The biggest advantage of shopping for jewelry online has to be “comfort.” There is nothing more relaxing than being able to sit down and shop from the comfort of your own home. Websites like GemPacked give you the option of creating beautiful looks with products like metal and gemstone beads, pearls, gold-filled chains, crystals, charms, and other components. What you create is up to you, but you can showcase your personal style and make you your own unique look.
Reasons we buy jewelry
One of the main reasons people love jewelry is because of the aesthetic, in other words, it is pretty to look at. Sometimes a pair of earrings or a necklace is all you need to bring your whole look together and make your outfit pop. The right jewelry accessory can provide you the bold look or give you a completely unique presence. Jewelry is also something that can complement any occasion. It doesn’t matter if it is a birthday party, engagement, bar mitzvah or a night out dancing with friends, jewelry can be the most versatile fashion accessory you can own.
Jewelry is probably the best gift anyone can get. It doesn’t matter if you are male or female, chances are you love jewelry. There is nothing that says “I love you” more than jewelry. It doesn’t matter if it is a pair of earrings, a necklace or a bracelet, it is a gift that you can treasure for years to come and eventually pass down to your child or loved one.
The great thing about handcrafted jewelry is each piece is entirely unique and different from each other. There are hundreds of different types to choose from such as beads, jade, pearls, silver, gold or whatever compliments you best.
Rites of passage
Jewelry can be used to represent a rite of passage. It can help signify an important or monumental change in your life or to celebrate your transition into adulthood. Jewelry is often used in religious ceremonies, such as a baptism or bar mitzvah, to commemorate the event.
A new piece of jewelry is a great way to celebrate your own success and showcase your status. It is okay to pat yourself on the back every now and then. By buying (or making) a pair of earrings or a necklace, this will not only give you a huge confidence boost, but it will also let everyone around you know that you are at a point in your career where you can comfortably afford to go out and purchase whatever you want.
One of my favorite aspects of shopping for jewelry is it can be completely customizable. Often, you are able to have it engraved and fitted to your personal specifications to make sure it fits comfortably. Over time, you can even add to your piece, fitting it with different stones or having it reshaped.
Many times people are hesitant when it comes to purchasing jewelry. One of the biggest questions many potential buyers have is, “What if it breaks?” What many fail to realize is how easy, quick and affordable the process of having jewelry repaired is. If your necklace breaks, it is not like you have to go out and buy a completely new one. All you have to do is take it to your local jeweler and they will usually have it repaired before the end of the day. A vast majority of jewelry is made with very durable materials and designed to last for decades.
