Women all over the world love jewelry as do men on occasion. We have a deep need to wear decorations as did our ancestors from the beginning of time. We are not the only generation to adorn ourselves with jewels, gold and silver. Jewelry from the beginning could have been constructed of leaves, stick or vines. It is important to look at our rge for jewelry, not as a superficial means but as a character trait that has been passed down over hundreds of generations from the very time our ancestors started walking on two feet.
Over the years from the beginning of time, people adorned them selves in order to prove thier social or economical status, accent beauty and for many other reasons. The urge to decorate our bodies is written into our DNA and we are all but powerless to stop it.
One case to study is that of the American Indians. We see pictures of Indian chiefs and medicine men waring beads or feathers adorning their heads and their bodies. While many American Indians wore beads or feathers, the most elaborate jewelry and decorationswere reserved for those with higher status’s. That is also the case all over the world, in England we see the queen, she wears a crown and other high class jewelry. You do not very often see a regular citizen walking around wearing a crown. Everyone these days will wear some type of jewelry or decoration, but again the most extravagant jewelry is reserved for those who of a higher class, not by law of course, but by means. Jewelry is expensive so you must have a deeper wallet to purchase those pieces of jewelry that are considered a higher value.
The innate need to decorate ourselves is a primal desire, one that will not be denied by lack of the means to purchase jewelry. You can see that even the poorest of s will find way to assuage that need. When we cannot afford the diamond encrusted bracelet, fishing line and beads can be an alternative.
