The part of the past that is documented states that the earliest account of the usage of silver was as a medium of exchange. Whereas, jewelry was being made from shells, animal bones and stones. Centuries of men and women have worn amulets and talismans in the belief that they would ward off evil; some civilizations even used jewelry to describe and distinguish ranks and religions, societal status and much more. Over the years, a lot has changed in the sphere of fashion and today, silver jewellery is an ultimate accessory of beauty and power for women across the globe.

From silver spoons to silver bracelets, the world has witnessed some extraordinary articles made out of silver. Silver jewelry has stood out because of its timelessness and sheer beauty, not to forget its malleability to be cast into a variety of jewelry designs.

Studs and Hoops have been with us a long time. It dates back to when sailors sported hoops; it meant that they survived a shipwreck. During the 60’s, 70’s and the 80’s hoops defined a statement look for women. Even to this date, a bigger hoop is considered to be more of a fashion statement than smaller ones. While hoops have always inspired flamboyance and boldness, studs inspired minimalism. Women have kept studs alive for their light, simple and elegant designs and passed them on for generations to come.

   

Jhumka, another type of earring design has been famous for its distinct structure and versatility. Jhumkas have evolved and inspired number of modern and contemporary designs for young and older women alike.
