Last year we made a guide to lingerie for men by remembering the first time we had to enter a lingerie shop. On the occasion of Valentine’s Day, the jewel is one of the gifts that also come quickly to mind. And it is not without difficulty that we then embark on this adventure. To help you better understand this universe and to define what could be the ideal jewel, gentlemen and gentlemen, we now offer our great guide to jewelry for women for men). The use of the Moriah Collection Israeli jewelry is perfect.
We have in this article essentially detailed the jewel in its most precious form, that is to say, the one that one buys at jewelers store. The applied techniques are of course for the costume jewelry that located rather upmarket. So to know everything about the jewelry we offer essential points:
- History of the jewel
Since time immemorial, the jewel has been synonymous with wealth, power or seduction among others. The more valuable is the metal or stones, the finer the work of the executed work is, the more the jewel is expensive and conveys a strong message.
The first jewels are dated to the Paleolithic, a little more than 100 000 years ago, and are the sign of the earliest aesthetic preoccupations, firstly, shells or animal teeth are pierced and intended for the manufacture of necklaces then gradually appears the shaping of hard animal materials (bone, wood, teeth, ivory). The jewel is an element chosen and shaped not for its utility but for its power of representation.
History of the jewel
This publication confirms that these shells were not only collected by the seaside populations but drilled, mounted in ornaments and probably served for trade or exchange. It is for the moment the oldest traces but regularly new discoveries enrich this knowledge about our ancestors.
The jewel has always carried a message
It is often an indication of belonging: the engagement ring or the alliance, the signet with a coat of arms. It can serve as an embellishment and therefore has a role of seduction. He can also define a social rank according to the cost or the working time of the raised jewels. The only attribute that could have disappeared today would be the exclusivity of certain stones or materials reserved for an elite, at the same time only some have the wallet enough stocked to consider buying some jewelry.
The jeweler designs build, repairs, maintains, transforms and sells precious metal jewelry (gold, silver, platinum). For jewels adorned with pearls or precious stones, it is up to the jeweler to intervene and predict the location in which the stone will be highlighted. Generally, the jeweler and jeweler are confused because metal and precious stones often enter the design of a jewel. However, it is customary to see that the term jewelry is attributed to “entry-level” stores like chains, the term “jeweler” being more reserved for more confidential and upmarket houses, there is also a for houses offering unique pieces, luxury.
In jewelry, the carat (ct) is the unit of measure used to evaluate the mass of gemstones and especially diamonds. If 1 carat = 0.20 gram, it is more common to speak in hundredths, so one says of a stone of 0,25 ct that it weighs 25 hundredths of a carat.
The amount of precious metal used in the alloy determines the title of the work. Since 1 January 1995, this title must be expressed in thousandths, and no longer in carats. This measurement of the purity of precious metal products makes it easier for consumers to understand that a 750-thousand-dollar (18-carat) gold structure is made of 75% pure gold. To qualify for the designation “gold”, “silver” or “platinum” at the marketing stage, a jewel must have 375 thousandths (9 carats) for gold, 800 thousandths for silver and 850 thousandths for gold.
