From Cleopatra, to the ancient Romans, to Her Royal Highness the Queen, jewelry has been around as a symbol of status, success, and pride since the long past B.C’s. It’s only human nature to want to be dripping in precious ornaments and sparkling gems. Am I going out on a limb when I say that vanity is our everlasting cliché? Regardless, I hereby blame my craving for a crystal-encrusted statement piece on the narcissistic, materialistic flaws of mankind which, of course, I am only subjected to, being human. All I want is a little number to whip out on special occasions, or on normal ones, to feel a wee more glamorous. If only my empty wallet felt the same way.
