An ornament is something that is worn by a person to make himself or herself more captivating or appealing. Ornaments have the power to bring out the hidden charisma in a person. Ornaments have always been an indispensable part of the lives of the people in India, and also all over the world. Whether made of a combination of metals and precious stones, stones, shells, paper or even clay, ornaments have always tempted humankind.
There are ornaments which one can wear on the hair or head, body, neck, ears, hands, nose and even feet. According to our rich Indian culture, most of the ornaments are worn for a cause or as a part of a belief or tradition.
We have a wide range of ornaments worn in our country. Some of them are crowns, tiaras, necklaces, pendants, bangles, nose rings, earrings, cufflinks, brooches, bracelets, anklets, toe rings, maang tikas, kamarbands (belly chains), armlets and so on. Some of these ornaments are even believed to enhance the health of the person adorning it.
Fancy ornaments are synonymous to costume jewellery, as they fulfil the purpose of complementing a particular costume look of ladies. It has nothing to do with investment, as in the case of “real” ornaments.
The fine or real jewellery, made of precious metals like Gold, Silver, Platinum, etc. are not utilised in the making of costume jewellery. Instead, they are usually made of Sterling Silver in varied styles and patterns to suit the latest fashion trends. Being cheap makes it accessible to the common people.
