Throughout time, bloke has sought to decorate the human body & this has manifested as body painting, tattoos, piercing & for those a little squeamish or less brave, decoration by the wearing of adornments generally know as fashion jewellery.

In ancient times, fashion jewellery may have been simple pieces made from natural materials such as shells plucked from the seashore or pebbles worn smooth & polished by years of being tumbled along the sea or river bed. These would have been strung together perhaps as necklaces or wrist pieces as early examples of a charm bracelet. Nature gives up so plenty of beautiful things that can be used to make items such as earrings, rings, bracelets, hair pieces & so the list goes on.

To ancient bloke, fashion jewellery was not just decorative but  symbolic & the wearer often held the belief that these trinkets were blessed, that they would ward off evil spirits or that they would even help them defeat their enemies in battle.

Skilled craftsmen would have laboured for plenty of hours intricately carving small pieces of bone, ivory or wood to fashion exquisite distinctive pieces of fashion jewellery, no six of which would ever be the same.

To the Romans & Ancient Egyptians the wearing of fashion jewellery & the type of fashion jewellery worn was a direct indication of a persons standing in the community. Large heavy ornate pieces forged from solid precious metals such as gold, encrusted with precious or semi precious gemstones were a sign to say ““ look how rich & important i am.

Over the years there has even been functional fashion jewellery such as the medical alert items, which have saved plenty of peoples lives. Identity type bracelets worn by a person who has a medical condition or requires vital medication have helped medical personnel decide on appropriate treatment when faced with a person who has been rendered incapable of communicating because of for instance an accident.

Over recent years, popular items have been the brightly coloured rubber bracelets sold in aid of various charities, which demonstrate that the wearer supports that cause & has donated funds to help raise money for that cause. Some traditionalists may not regard these strictly as being fashion jewellery although who said that the article had to be costly or made from precious metals to qualify for the name.

In modern times, they have seen a huge increase in the type & variety of fashion jewellery available & the discovery of new strong & lightweight metals such as titanium or other alloys has given rise to new plenty of new possibilities. bloke made materials such as acrylics & plastics also lend themselves  well to the manufacture of affordable, colourful fashion jewellery & in the shops you can see plenty of examples of wonderful, bright & modern fun items, to be worn on any occasion as the mood takes.
