Women's fondness for jewels proves the Turkish proverb titling this post. Most of the people involved in the jewelry business are women, as craftsmen, sellers, and consumers. A cruise through the GIA course catalogue's photos supports this. Jewelry blogs indicate that we like bling for itself and like what it does to us- wearing jewelry is a dynamic process. We are more than consumers; we are artists, expressing ourselves with symbols, costume, and layered messages. Simultaniously Pygmalion and Galatea, we add beauty to the world and love the result. There is not one right answer-- there are millions of, "Yes, exactly!" It's an almost exclusively feminine form of art- I hope you enjoy it today with your sisters worldwide who also know they look fantastic!
