Fashion is a term that relates to appearance. It can be clothing, costumes, cosmetics, hair styles and accessories like watches, shoes, and jewellery. People tend to be fashionable, that means they want to be with current popular mode of fashion.

Jewellery is the most important fashion accessories for both men and women. Some accessories like watches, tie pins, bracelets, hair pins, and exclusive buttons are no longer accessories items only. They now became jewellery items. Fashion affected jewellery and jewellery designs vigorously. In order to follow current fashion, people want matching jewellery and accessories.

Modern women are not satisfied with one necklace, rings, ear rings or bracelets. They want matching pieces with almost every favourite costume. Such tendency encouraged jewellers to design jewellery with matching fashion trends and colours. Jewellers are following different methods to fulfill desire of their customers. These days designer jewellery is in great demand.

Jewellery Types

According to current trends we can categorize jewellery into:

Ã?â‚?? Premium Jewellery - Premium jewellery includes costly jewellery items made with gemstones (diamond, sapphire, ruby, and pearls) and precious metals (gold, platinum, nickel, cadmium, and silver).

Ã?â‚?? Art Jewellery - Art jewellery is created with a variety of materials not just precious metals and gems. There is also a growing demand for Art jewellery where design and creativity is prized above material value. In addition with precious metals and gemstones, glass, wood, plastics and clay are also used in making Art Jewellery.

Ã?â‚?? Costume Jewellery - Costume jewellery is generally less-costly, made from less-valuable materials. Its variations includes wire sculpture (wrap) jewellery, using anything from base metal wire with rock tumbled stone to precious metals and precious gemstones.
