Why Do We Wear Jewellery?

Do you wear jewellery? Yes, no or only for a special occasion?

An early form of decorative art

Jewellery was an early form of decorative art. The study of some primitive cultures shows that organic materials were used in the past. It was not until a later stage of human development that people chose precious and possibly scarce materials from far away to create jewelry.1

Jewellery for different purposes

In many cases, jewellery was used as personal adornment, and also to convey the wearer’s social roles. Jewellery was also used to ward off disease and other evils, and sometimes even to work “magic” against opponents. In religious rituals, jewellery enhanced acts and signs of prayer and devotion to divinities.2

The history of jewellery

Jewellery that was made out of precious materials surfaced 5,000 years ago. In Mesopotamia, jewelry was fashioned from metals designed as leaves, spirals, and bunches of grapes and inlaid with brightly colored stones. The Ancient Chinese had high regard for jade and silver. Brooches made of precious metals were used in Ancient Greece and Rome to clasp clothes together. Mayan jewelry was generally made from jade, gold, bronze, silver, and copper. Gold was highly coveted in Ancient Egypt such as was displayed in artifacts from King Tut’s tomb. These ancient cultures considered jewelry as a status symbol and only the affluent wore it. In the Middle Ages, royalty and nobility wore jewellery made from gold, silver, and precious gems, while those from the lower classes wore ornaments made from base metals like copper and pewter.3

Express yourself with jewellery

As times and traditions changed, the mindset about jewelry has also transformed. It has become a mode of self-expression and creativity that’s not limited to costly metals and stones. Jewelry can now also be made from textiles, leather, plastic, glass, or crystal. Fashionable and luxury jewelry is worn by people from all walks of life. These days, people wear jewelry to reflect their mood, style, and individuality.
