Interesting Jewelry Info

Hi Everyone!

Here’s a quick and interesting history about jewelry. Thought you all would enjoy it.

The word jewellery is derived from the word jewel, which was anglicised from the Old French “jouel” around the 13th century. It has also been suggested that the word is derived from “Jew”, as the Jews were important jewelry artisans of that time. Further tracing leads back to the Latin word “jocale“, meaning plaything. Jewelry is one of the oldest forms of body adornment.

Recently found 100,000 year-old beads made from Nassarius shells are thought to be the oldest known jewelry.

 

Although during earlier times jewelry was created for practical uses such as wealth, storage and pinning clothes together, in recent times it has been used almost exclusively for decoration. The first pieces of jewelry were made from natural materials, such as bone, animal teeth, shell, wood and carved stone. Jewelry was often made for people of high importance to show their status and, in many cases, they were buried with it.

 

Jewelry has been made to adorn nearly every body part, from hairpins to toe rings and many more types of jewelry. While high-quality jewelry is made with gemstones and precious metals, there is also a growing demand for art jewelry where design and creativity is prized above material value. In addition, there is the less-costly costume jewelry, which provides beautiful designs at affordable prices.

Hi Everyone!

 

India is going Global! This phrase has recurred at innumerable junctures. And the latest instance to proclaim this has been at the Olympics. The Indian athletes did make a mark but what has set the tongues wagging is the use of a Bollywood song by athletes from Israel.

 

The Israelite gymansts performed their routine on a song from the Farah Khan directed movie Om Shanti Om. A song from this movie was also used by participants at an American dance reality show So You Think You Can Dance.

 

Its amazing to see Bollywood to gain such popularity. That Bollywood leaves a mark on Indians in India & abroad is undisputed but these instances prove that it has made a place in the hearts of audiences worldwide. And for all Bollywood fans, its a moment of great pride and joy.
