Cultural Jewelry

Jewelry is usually about style and fashion. We wear necklaces, rings and watches because they express our personality, because they look nice, and because they accessorize an outfit or for sentimental value.

In different cultures around the world however, the practice of wearing jewelry is about all the above, but also carries a host of traditions, meanings and customs that indicate such things as wealth, status, societal role, and more. We’ve selected a few pieces  to celebrate the diversity of culture all around the world.
