Jewellery is a universal form of adornment which has been a part of human culture and is as old as human civilization itself. Jewellery made from shells, stone and bones survives from prehistoric times. It is likely that it was worn as a protection from the dangers of life or as a mark of status or rank. While cultural values have made people use jewellery for various purposes, they have always served as something precious and valuable. As time went by and with the advancement in technology, artisans began to turn metals and precious stones into works of art that influenced cultures and styles. Even with advancements in metallurgy and gem processing, the purpose of wearing jewellery always remained the same. They enabled the wearer to showcase their wealth, rank, political and religious affiliations or their affection towards someone. This enabled jewellery to become timeless and a target for constant development and refinement.
Jewellery has made beautiful girls look even more beautiful. In other words, jewellery forms part of our personality and adds more colour to the individual self.
