Faceted And Non-faceted Jewellery
The best way to see the sparkle of any jewellery is to see it in the eyes of the one who’s wearing it. Jewellery not only makes us look beautiful, but they also make us feel beautiful from inside. A woman and jewellery are like one divine body complementing another divine body. Faceted or non-faceted, shimmering or matted, all kinds of jewellery can make a person look good and elegant. Different materials have ruled different times. From kings and queens to people in the lower ranks, all have worn jewellery from a time when civilisations did not exist.
Jewellery is something that is never out of fashion. Trends and styles may have changed, new and innovative styles have come, but with all its new and old styles and fashion, the idea of jewellery has remained with us throughout. We have seen faceted jewellery encrusted with gems, precious stones, pearls, all kinds of beads, crystals, semi-precious stones and gemstones etc. Then there are the non-faceted jewellery which enjoy equal attention.
Faceted jewellery are more worn on the neck as lavaliere and on the head as tiaras. Also we find their increasing usage on the bracelets, where they dangle from the wrist, thereby making them look petite. In fact, faceted jewellery can be worn anywhere. However, women usually prefer it around their neck, like in a choker style? the popular style in Edwardian times during the twentieth century.
Faceted jewellery are those which have beads, gems or stones cut and polished in a geometrically shaped flat surface. And non-faceted jewellery are where the gems or the stones do not have any particular geometrically shaped flat polished face, for instance cabochons. More often than not, we find the usage of coloured stones in faceted jewelleryStones like jade, onyx and coral are set in geometric shapes and delicate designs, or bold and chunky designs.
