Why Do Women Love To Wear Jewellery?

Women love to wear jewellery for a variety of reasons and many will not leave the house without having some jewellery on. Jewellery to many women is a form of statement. It expresses what they like and also can be a great visual indicator to a person's wealth.

Many women will spend a considerable sum of money on jewellery as they believe it will show just how wealthy they are. However it is not always simple to define if the person's jewellery is really that expensive. Over the past few years more and more 'imitation' jewellery pieces have flooded the market from the various designer houses like “Expressions Jewellery”. If you look on our site such as you can see there are rings, necklaces and earrings that look almost identical to ones that cost more than Rs. 5,00,000 but are actually on sale for around Rs. 2,500.

Women love to wear jewellery that is sentimental to them. It may be due to the piece of jewellery being bought by a loved one or they may have bought it from a special place such as on holiday and so it is a great memory of this particular time. Some women also believe jewellery can have a very powerful spiritual meaning and so will wear particular necklaces that represent things such as luck or love.

Religion is also a major part of why some women wear jewellery. The crucifix is one of the most popular pieces of jewellery in the world and works as a clear way of declaring their religion.

Jewellery is a Reflection of your Aesthetic Sensibilities

Jewellery is a reflection of your aesthetic sensibilities and is instrumental in enhancing your style, says director of “Expressions Jewellery”

How important is it to have different kinds of jewellery to match different outfits?

It’s a priority. One can’t wear a diamond cuff bangle on the beach and one can’t really be in funky leather jewellery, while at a temple wedding ceremony! Jewellery speaks volumes about you style sensibilities. What to wear and how much, is really a reflection of your aesthetic sense and the ability to present yourself impeccably.

What are the must have pieces of jewellery in a woman’s wardrobe and why?

Diamond, solitaires and a diamond ring, as these give one a quintessential glow, while keeping it simple and elegant. An inheritance from your mother is another thing that is a must have in your wardrobe, as this will always warm your heart, a piece of gold that she gave you or a family heirloom. A commemoration piece from a travel or a friend, jewellery must tell stories and is always nice to pick up a piece when you live life travelling. A set of silver and gold bangles are also a must, as they are something that can be teamed up with almost anything. A cocktail ring is a must too. A spiritual piece is another necessity, which reflects your believes. A piece that has your birthstone in it, or a favourite-colour gemstone, an antique piece that attracted you or maybe a piece that reflects the craftsmanship of your hometown, is also great to have. A pair of evening chandeliers or a cuff bangle in black diamonds is very high fashion and works with most looks. A beautifully crafted piece from Expressions Jewellery, contemporary designer jewellery that reflects your time, created by your loved Expressions Jewellery and also a piece of jewellery that celebrates love, wedding jewellery that you can wear often and one piece that blows everyone away and can be worn on occasions only.

How far does jewellery go in altering someone’s overall look?

Jewellery can either make or break your look; the right piece at the right time is an art form. Size does not matter here; it’s in the detail and the story and the confidence that it is carried with.

Are there any new trends that the jewellery industry will see this season?

Jewellery should make a personal statement and should have daring aesthetics. Black diamonds, cabochon gemstones and pieces crafted just for you make a great style statement. There is also the trend of recycling jewellery, making new pieces from existing metal. Men today are also signing up for personal pieces, while women are buying special hair ornaments. Multimedia jewellery will also rule the seasons to come.

Does jewellery have the license of being presented in colourful designs, or should it stick to the basic aesthetics?

It’s important to celebrate design with colours. It takes taste, experience and a natural flair to carry off many colours. And yes jewellery can be as vibrant as it comes, but only the most gifted have the license to draw these lines and I will say, keep it natural and balanced. Good taste is a rare find and people who wear good jewellery feel special from within.
