Ethnic jewelry associated with stones
Ethnic jewellery traditions have now spread around the world. For ethnic groups, these accessories have their own meaning.

For noble families, the wearing of valuable ethnic jewellery (gold, for example) was once a symbol of glory and supremacy. Valuable accessories are made of precious and expensive materials. The middle and lower classes, on the other hand, wear less expensive objects often made of natural materials such as semi-precious metals, feathers and plants. In this day and age, it’s all a matter of taste. Everyone is free to choose their ethnic jewelry according to their style and personality.
Jewellery that transports us to other worlds
Ethnic jewellery is usually synonymous with escape. Their bright and warm hues often take us to travel to other continents. These traditional accessories combine chic and nature. They have succeeded in bringing the past and the present closer together. Although ethnic jewellery is an aesthetic object, it is still advisable to be careful with accumulation. Combining feather earrings with an imposing necklace is not all harmony. To avoid too much effect, wear only one or the other. For bracelets, combine objects of the same volume and complementary colours.
