Everyone has heard about how different the style of clothes of Slavs, Europeans and Americans. The most restrained in all respects are European women. Except for popular bloggers, party-goers and the fashion week, usually in all the cities of Europe there is the slogan "Simplicity. Style. Comfort".
And it’s true for jewelry as well - minimalism for young girls and more luxury for women of older generations.
What influences the choice of jewelry?
Europe is big, so one cannot unequivocally answer the question about what jewelry women prefer there. Each country has its own traditions. In addition, despite the generalized trends for the whole world, the trends in each country are different. It is worth remembering that girls, women and elderly ladies have different attitudes to jewelry.
Girls less than 30 years of age like to wear jewelry, combining it with gold and silver. Precious stones are worn only for a special occasion.
The hands of women often adorn only one thin ring (it can also be engagement ring). In the ears there are small earrings, and on the neck there is a thin chain. However, most often women leave one or two products.
Ladies of venerable age wear much more jewelry. Several gold rings, necklaces, bracelets, pearls with gold - all of these European older woman can wear on without a twinge of conscience, and go to meet her friend in a cafe. In addition, only elderly European ladies wear fur.
