Fun with Jewels- Starting Your Jewellery Collection

Whether you’re male or female, everybody has some jewels, rings, and often some family heirlooms, passed down for years. Many younger people have gold chains, etc, and there’s usually a menagerie of different types of personal ornaments by the time people are in their mid-late teens.

These collections often contain echoes of ancient jewellery and customs. Part of the fun of jewellery is that the more you learn, the more fascinating it becomes. Every form of jewellery has its own character and its own artistic forms. Even the simplest earring or ring is a work of art.

The history of jewellery is full of quite incredible stories, and even more incredible fashions. Jewellery is part of the human social psyche, and it’s because the fact is people love jewels, and always have. Since the beginning of recorded history, and even in prehistory, people have worn ornaments of some kind or another.

That’s not “just women”, either. As a matter of fact, historically, men wore a lot of jewellery, (even more than hip hop stars) both as status symbols and badges of rank. Some men even decorated their swords with gems. Even religious icons were quite literally turned into jeweller’s art, and some works were truly extraordinary, unique achievements by any artistic standard.

Women wore jewels for much the same reason, but there was always the element of beauty to be considered, and the female forms of jewellery have always tended to be part of a much more developed aesthetic. Jewels with specific meanings, like diamond rings as wedding rings, have been around for a long time, but these “female” ornamental jewels, including earrings, bracelets, necklaces, have taken on many forms, and they’re the basis of the modern jewels you see today. (Most of these formerly exclusively female types of jewellery have been swiped by male fashions over time, too.)

Starting your jewellery collection

The more you know about jewels, the more fun you have. You can create your own hoard of fabulous things. Gold, in particular, is a good starting point, as are some small diamonds. (Never mind the “jewellery fashionistas”. What doesn’t go with gold and diamonds?) You can create a palette of colors, including emeralds, rubies, sapphires, pearls and platinum.

You’ve now created a spectrum for your jewellery, and you can build on that over time, wearing your favorites. There’s no hurry. Buy the things you love, and your jewels will always be your treasures.

Wearing your collection
There’s always some sort of controversy about how to wear jewels and what to wear.

The rules of wearing jewellery are actually quite straightforward:
-Small pieces of jewellery, particularly the well made, well-designed high craftsmanship pieces, outclass expensive, garish garbage.
-If you’re a guy, you wear gold in the forms of good quality rings, chains, etc., or you just don’t wear gold.
-If a piece looks loud and trashy, it is loud and trashy.
-Most important: If you really love something, it’s worthy of being in your collection.

Your jewels are something you can always enjoy. Start collecting, and have fun.
