Less is increasingly more in the world of jewelry. Our excesses of the past have been quietly tempered and the present seems revels in subtlety.
In a western world so reliant on aestheticism, too much can be disaster.
There is an interesting link between the personality of an individual and the jewelry they may adorn. Some favour naturally occurring materials - think bronze, copper, silver, wood, minerals, etc. this could be seen as a nod to tradition, a feeling of jewelry as cultural statement, and a nostalgic incorporation of historical aspects.
Others may favour jewelry influenced by human craft - emeralds, diamonds, etc. This could be seen as a striving to perfection, an interesting admiration to the marvels of human achievement.
So where do you fall on the line? Do you wear jewelry to find that connection to nature and tradition, or do you wear jewelry as a statement to pioneering human design, a painstaking process of minute detail and unparalleled craftsmanship.
