The promise of the bride and groom to each other is symbolic of the promise for eternal unity, the wedding rings are exchanged as part of the wedding ceremony in the presence of family and friends, which is commonly known as an engagement ceremony. The bride and the groom-to-be spend ample of time researching and deciding on the wedding rings and wedding jewellery of different styles and materials before making the final decision. For most people, wearing a valuable piece of jewellery is simply something they want to do out of sheer will -such as putting on earrings, rings or necklaces has become a habit for most women and men. History has evidently proven that men too indulged in wearing jewellery just as much as women did, rooting back to ancient times. It has turned into a part of our routine and we rarely stop to ask why it is that one wears jewellery.

 Humans, regardless of gender, have worn jewellery for nearly 75,000 years, and have done so for a variety of reasons, some of which are more obvious than the others.

  • Helps Put the look Together -Adding jewellery with one’s outfit, one looks put together and well dressed. While picking up clothing off the rack, the way one imagines themselves wearing the dress, blouse or the entire outfit, can really claim to have the look completely hyped up by incorporating the addition of jewellery.
  • Reflections of personal taste – A person can share any or all of the following through jewellery: be it their favourite colour or stone, wearing a token from a loved one or buying jewellery on the way back from a special trip, flatter a physical feature one wants to emphasize. For example, wearing gold- toned jewellery to compliment one’s golden hair.
  • Enhances the outfit or shape of the face – jewellery is the easiest way to put your own signature on an outfit. Jewellery can trick the eye here too creating balance, and contrast to be flattering to the face. For instance, if you have a full, round shaped face, a vertical style earring will help slim the face and counter the round shape.
  • Enhances the figure – Jewellery is a powerful accessory but if one wants to look tall and slim, they just need to add a necklace that comes down in a V or a Y shape, just like a lariat style. If someone has a pear-shaped figure, using a brooch or two near collars on the shoulder helps pull the eye up, to the face. This helps balance the figure.
  • A good investment opportunity-Jewellery is a good investment, especially if they are made up of precious gemstones and metals like moissanite 1 ct or  2 carat. Stones such as diamonds, rubies, emeralds and metals such as gold, platinum, silver and silver solitaire rings are considered to be highly valuable and are known for its value, as they never face depreciation. On the other hand, it is most likely for a person to not wear the same outfits every day but they can definitely wear the same necklace daily. And resting on the style and quality of the jewellery they can wear it year after year, even pass it on to their children to preserve family heritage.

 Jewellery is also important because often times it has a personal significance. Wedding rings passed down from generations remind people of their traditions and heritage, while others collect a few pieces of jewellery to remind them of their travels and trips or a specific event in their life. Often there is much more than one reason why people wear certain pieces of jewellery but it is usually because we feel more like ourselves.
