Why are Women so Obsessed with Jewellery?

Posted in: Jewellery

Whether it’s a treasured heirloom or a piece of cheap-and-cheerful bling, there aren’t many women who don’t love jewellery.

From candy necklaces and lollipop rings to irresistible clip-on earrings, accessories of every shape, size and material have embellished most of our childhoods. Even when we leave our teenage years - most of which are peppered with homemade friendship bracelets - this jewellery obsession rarely diminishes.
After all, the current trend for stacking is more than a little reminiscent of afternoons spent playing dress-up; raiding your mother’s jewellery box and piling on as many baubles as possible while tottering around on a pair of stolen heels.

So why do women love jewellery so much?
There is no denying that jewellery is a very important extension of your wardrobe and, although small in stature, the additional adornments we wear send a big message.

Whether you like delicate jewels or bold bangles, every piece exaggerates your personal style. The trend for super-sized accessories may have taken the high street by storm, but the truth is that even fans of minimalism make a statement with their jewellery choices.

Few or plentiful, together these individual ornaments paint a restrained picture of self-expression - elegant, adventurous, traditional or downright quirky.
Jewellery can also give your outfit an instant update by adding a pop of colour, a touch of luxury or a hint of sparkle, all without breaking the bank. Investing in the latest runway craze can be pricey, but slip on a trend-heavy keepsake and voilà - you’re channeling high fashion for a fraction of the cost.

No one can deny that the material value of quality trinkets also plays a significant part in their appeal. Jewellery has historically been an outward symbol of wealth, class or social status. If you’re wearing a pearl necklace or a pair of diamond earrings, whether they’re real or fake, they’ll be perceived as expensive, rare and lavish.

Not only is jewellery a pleasure to choose, wear and covet, but it’s also sentimental, opulent, sensual, valuable and extremely indicative of our tastes. No wonder we love it!
