Dripping With Jewels

15 Feb

Woman With NecklaceHappy Friday, Lady Smut readers! Continuing with my sexy apparel thoughts that I began on Wednesday, I’m now venturing into the realm of jewelry, all kinds of jewelry: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, anklets, bangels, rings. How do we wear it, when do we wear it, how much, and whom for. Jewelry is such a fun adornment because it can dress up a bland outfit, serve as the dramatic finishing touch to Oscar-worthy gowns, or be the sexiest thing you’ve ever worn.

A quick peek at the history of jewelry reveals indications that it’s been worn as long as 90,000 years ago. Ancient EgyptFirst worn by people in Africa and then Egypt, it eventually spread to the Greeks and Romans and then throughout the world. We’ve all seen cave drawings of ancient Egyptians, and they’re frequently adorned with bracelets and elaborate headpieces. Check out this one. The middle woman is sporting some serious gold earrings, big and round as dinner plates. I’m digging the belly chains, too.

A personal favorite of mine in the sexy jewelry category are necklaces that fall oh-so-sensuously between the breasts and lead the eyes downward toward the goods. If they’re made of diamonds, that doesn’t hurt, but I’d take these pearls, too.Necklace

And speaking of pearls . . . what a versatile little gem they are! Pearls come in various sizes and display all kinds of moods.

I like the different materials that are made to create jewelry. Gems, metals, fabrics – leather cuff, anyone? And pretty much any part of the body is fair game. A friend of mind has a pierced belly button, and one of her favorite rings has an arrow on it that points straight downward. It’s a tiny little thing that you don’t even necessarily notice, but she says just having it on and knowing that it’s aimed straight down between her legs makes her feel like a sexy vixen.

Maybe diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but I’m personally more of a ruby girl. I love the dramatic red color, perfect for Valentine’s Day. Oh, but I just missed it. Shoot. Well, maybe I’ll have to drop a hint to my better half for next year. 🙂

    I love jewelry, My favorite would have to be black pearls. 😉 But I also love antique jewelry and have a little collection I cherish because it’s from family members.

      I’m completely with you, Liz. I adore antique jewelry. One of my favorite pieces lately is a cameo necklace that I received from my Mom, although I believe it may have been her mother’s. I really like it when I complement it with a lot of chains to give it kind of a renaissance rocker look. Fun! 🙂

    Did you know at one point, Roman women were so into jewelry that the Romans passed a law limiting how much jewelry a woman could own/wear? I think it way about six pound’s worth.

      Interesting, Madeline! Six *pounds* worth?! Can you imagine wearing that much jewelry. I’d throw my back out! Ha!
