“Statement Jewelry”. If the word “Statement” refers to “words grouped meaningfully to express a statement, question, exclamation, request or command” then the visual embellishment and power of jewelry pieces of bold and powerful distinction can thus be deemed “Statements”. Perhaps a newer term to describe what has always existed centuries before in the archives of fashion. Perhaps it is not a trend, as it seems to be quoted in fashionable circles, but a newer definition to attribute bold confidence to those women that choose to adorn and embellish themselves with unique objects of personal preference and style. For certain, fashion evolves. Yet the enduring appeal of a grand statement of fashionable style remains. Bold impact of personal style. And of defining our personalities with stylish layerings that accentuate our individual style? Paramount. What we wear is defining. What we chose to adorn, layer and embellish is a bold, statement of personal expression. A means of defining personal style, for certain…

“Jewellery” (in British English) or “Jewelry” (in American English) is termed as “Small decorative items worn for personal adornment, such as brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets”. The word “Jewellery” is derived from the word “Jewel” from the Old French word “Jouel” and the Latin word “Jocale”, meaning “Plaything”. Who knew? Of additional interest, many items of jewelry originated as purely functional but would evolve into decorative items (such as brooches). The word “Small” certainly does not align itself with the “Statement” objects of jewelry’s bold impact. Again, the term “Statement” surely does serve to relay the impact of bold and distinctive objects of adornment. The history of jewelry spans the history of the ancient civilizations of Egypt, India and China. The foundation that began in ancient times followed with the creation of the European civilizations. The unique styles developed would inspire fashion trends for centuries . The artistry and uniqueness of objects of embellishment continues to evolve and endure.

Of course, looking to the past, it is easy to link to the archives of fashion and the icons that visually iconically expressed the adornment of “Statement Jewelry”. An appreciation of images and icons of the past. As Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion changes, style endures”. Agreed. And of the beauty of Chanel & her iconic pearls and the cuff bracelet? Timeless adornment of elements of style, for certain. There will always be the desire for the object of bold and powerful distinction. There will always be the “Statement Jewelry” that beckons us
Bejewled and layered with bold “Statements” of style

Consider the adornment of an object that boldly makes a personal “Statement”. Whether unexpected patterns, colors and textures or classic and elegant embellishments of jeweled adornment, the choices are ours. Unique to our individual style and personalities. Bold and confident. No matter the occasion, the daily need for an element of distinction is a worthwhile embellishment. For me?
