Many woman will spend a considerable sum of money on jewelry as they believe it will show just how wealthy they are. However it is not always simple to define if the person's jewelry is really that expensive. Over the past few years more and more 'imitation' jewelery pieces have flooded the market from the Far East. If you look on auction sites such as eBay.com you can see there are rings, necklaces and earrings that look almost identical to ones that cost $5,000 but are actually on sale for around $10.
Women love to wear jewelry that is sentimental to them. It may be due to the piece of jewelry being bought by a loved one or they may have bought it from a special place such as on holiday and so it is a great memory of this particular time. Some woman also believe jewellery can have a very powerful spiritual meaning and so will wear particular necklaces that represent things such as luck or love.
Religion is also a major part of why some women wear jewelry. The crucifix is one of the most popular pieces of jewelry in the world and works as a clear way of declaring their religion.
