Fashion Education 101: Jewelry

I started graduate school this semester and was inspired to have a mini class of my own. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Fashion 101. LESSON 4!

Fashion Education 101: Jewelry

Some archaeologists have believed they have found some jewelry as old as 75,000 years old! So I feel it is an understatement to say jewelry has been around for a long time. 🙂

I have 3 addictions.

1. jackets

2. shoes

3. jewelry !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you enjoy some pretty pictures and a few details about special pieces.

THE NECK

Cameos

Cameo is actually a method of carving into a gem or metalwork and having a raised positive image. The Romans are credited to have this look first. The most popular type of cameo worn is on the neck.

Image

Pendants

Pendant came from the Latin word “pendere” which means “to hang down”. Pendants are a loose-hanging piece of jewelry. Most common in necklaces.

Image

Necklaces

Those things that hang from one’s neck. 😛

Blogger’s favorite type of necklace.

Image

Lockets

A locket is actually a type of pendant but has a space that can hold a picture or a lock of hair.

Image

Religious

Image

Chokers

Necklaces that are close and tight to the neck.

Image

THE ARMS

Armlets

Pieces of jewelry that wrap around the upper arm.

Image

Bracelets

Jewelry that wraps around your wrist.

Image

Bangles

Bracelets that are smaller and simple, easily layered.

Image

Cuffs

These are bigger pieces that can wrap around but don’t have to.

ImageImage

Watches

Jewelry that tells time. It’s a beautiful thing!

Image

EARS

Earrings

They come in fish hooks, studs, snaps and pull throughs.

Image

Ear Cuffs

Perfect for girls who don’t want to get their ears pierced. I didn’t get mine pierced until I was 17. Also some connect to earrings.

Image

Image

Clip Ons

I wore these all the time as a little girl.

Image

Gauges

I am not going to lie, I think these are weird. I have seen some people with gauges so big that a fist can fit through. :/

Image

RINGS

My favorite type of jewelry!

Image

FEET

Anklets

Bracelets for thee ankles.

Image

Toe Rings

Image

Barefoot Sandals

    • This is real Jade. I don’t know how tell what grade it is, but I do know Jade comes in a variety of colors. One way to tell if your ring is real Jade is a scratch test. Jade is tougher than steel, it should not scratch very easily. 🙂
