From the very dawn of time man has used different items with which to adorn his body. Initially these items were only things like the teeth or horns of the animals that he killed and their primary purpose was to demonstrate the wearer’s prowess, strength and abilities.
Today, people wear contemporary jewellery for many different reasons. Some wear jewellery that displays their financial wealth while others wear it purely as accessories to enhance their outfits and to express their individuality and personal style.
Initially contemporary jewellery was designed and made for the use in theatres and for the use of common people. But that was in the 1700’s and 1800’s.
Made from a wide assortment of different materials such as beads, leather and glass, bling also makes extensive use of semi-precious stones such as rhinestones and imitation diamonds like the cubic zirconia.
Set in metals like nickel and brass they can be very beautiful pieces and are in high demand around the world.
In our times contemporary jewellery has become very popular and is found in a dazzling array of designs making use of a wide range of styles. Wild Bling designers create pieces of affordable fashion or contemporary jewellery that can be worn as accessories on the body, on clothing, and even on items such as bags.
The term ‘bling’ describes anything that is flashy, stylish and has attitude. When it comes to items of jewellery whether earrings, necklaces, bangles, or toe rings, the look and durability of the piece, as well as the value, are dependent upon the materials used in the design.
Silver has become a popular choice among those who design and make fashion jewellery. Because silver is affordable, durable and attractive it has proven to be very useful in the making of costume jewellery. Very often base metals are covered with a plating of gold or silver.
