Women Buying Their Own Jewelry
Women are no longer waiting for men to shower them with gems, according to a recent article in Newsweek magazine.
Alice Hart-Daviswrites that jewelry, long considered something men buy as gifts to win the favor of women, is showing up on women's own shopping lists. Giving up on waiting for a clueless man to buy a gift of fine jewelry, women are shelling out the cash to acquire beautiful gemstones and works of jewelry art for their wardrobes. And doing so with enthusiasm and joy. They are buying to wear, for investment, as gifts to themselves or simply to take advantage of a bonus before daily expenses or, worse yet, inflation erode the purchasing power.
All be it, these tend to be women who have careers and independent financial resources. For many, the opportunity to own something of great beauty, like an authentic Native American jewelry bracelet, pendant or necklace, with no commitments attached, is spirit-lifting in addition to adding noteworthy adornment to their appearance.
