Jewelry can also be given simply as a gesture of appreciation or thanks. Another value often placed on jewelry is its ability to protect its wearer from harm. Many believe certain stones and metals have magical properties to ward off evil spirits or bring good luck.
Jewelry refers to an adornment (generally precious metal or stone) worn by a person, like a bracelet, ring, necklace, or earrings. Jewelry may be purely decorative, or it may express something — like a ring that says you are married.
