Many people like jewelry—men, women, and even children. There are all types, too. It all depends on a person’s budget and what quality they are looking to purchase. Lots of people who have unlimited amounts of cash will spend thousands on one piece of jewelry. There are some diamond rings and other jewelry that cost more than a brand-new car! For other people, even if they have unlimited amounts of money, they still choose not to spend so much on jewelry. Every one has different opinions and values, and this has a lot to do with what they choose to spend their money on.
There are many people out there who love jewelry so much that they wear it all over their bodies. They wear numerous necklaces, bracelets, and wear a ring on each finger. Some have multiple piercing in each ear, sometimes wearing up to six, seven, and even more earrings in each ear. There are toe rings, nose rings—wherever a person wants a piercing, they can get it. Some even wear earrings in their tongue or genitals. Wearing jewelry in such unusual areas of the body can cause infection, so people need to be careful about sanitation upon receiving a new piercing. They have to keep the area meticulously clean to prevent germs from brewing a nasty infection.
There are many types of low-cost jewelry, although the quality is not good at all. There is cubic zirconium, which is an item that is very similar to real gold, but for a fraction of the cost. Some manufacturers even make jewelry out of various types of cheap metals. Jewelry of this type can be bought for as cheap as a dollar a piece. Many people absolutely refuse to purchase this type of jewelry. Even if they don’t have a lot of money and have to put the jewelry on layaway, use a credit card or save up to buy it, they still prefer it over the cheap stuff. The cheap stuff can cause problems for people, too. It can cause discoloration of the skin and even problems with contact dermatitis. This can be very painful, sore and itchy, and is often caused by the nickel that naturally occurs in the metals used to make the jewelry.
There is no reason for people to have to settle for wearing cheap metal jewelry. There are too many ways to save money on good quality products. Stores like K-mart or Target sometimes offer up to seventy percent off, but it depends on what time of year you go, and if they’re having a sale at that time or not.
