Japan jewelry making started less than a hundred years ago. Unlike other crafts in Japan it had a strong influence of Western culture. There was a wonderful miracle was born through the magic of two cultures joining.
Japanese crafts were always full of ideas and meanings, a careful approach must be taken when selecting Japan jewellery. If you choose the right pair of earrings – you might get happy, longevity might be on the way, and fate may be hiding in lucky earrings.
Many jewelry items are named and created by the image of something very important to culture. It is very unusual for Japanese jewellery to be abstract. For example, take a dragon earrings. Dragon symbolizes strength, fortune and prosperity; Japanese Happiness Earrings, which are shaped after Japanese glyph of “happiness".
Japanese jewelry is very fine in detail, which is something you can expect from a nation that creates computers. Every detail is well-thought and full of meaning, so you shouldn’t worry wearing any of those Japanese rings, bracelets or chains.
To see something really astonishing you should try searching Google Images for “japanese tiara" - now that’s where sophisticated high-tech meets art! It’s amazing!
Can you imaging 600 silver pieces in chain with diamons that form a bracelet! Can you imagine 600 chains on your hand? That’s what Japanese jewellery is all about.
Jewellers try to fit into individualist world, where everybody must have a very sophisticated unique jewelry. Japan jewelry is very distinctive and attention-grabbing.
It’s weird but it’s much easier to find something Japanese silver, than anything in gold.
A deep search exposed us astonishing pearl-decorated golden ring and pearl earrings. I would have never thought that pearl could match gold so perfectly! To see that, I did a search for “Japanese diamond ring" in Google Images. It’s funny that Japanese pearl decoration can be found via diamond link. And if you’ll surf thru – you can find some really spectacular Japanese rings and neckwear. Everything is made with a great sense of detail, like I told you.
Really interesting things can be found by a Cornelis Hollander, nine-time winner of the “International Pearl Design" contest in Japan (and a couple of other big name titles), he is really innovative. His golden rings possess style and uniqueness, bringing a fresh breath of air into jewelry. Being a Netherlands-born and winning nine-time title in Pearl Design Contest in Japan, he must have really stimulated Japanese crafters to seek new ways to design pearl rings. If you followed me search above – you’ll probably agree with me: this influenced Japanese Jewelry in a very positive ways.
Last but not least in Japanese jewelery is charms of Japan. If you are lucky enough to find a charm with Japanese Faith symbol – be sure to have one. I’ll let you figure how does this Japanese symbol look like on your own. After all – you must be unusually lucky to find this. Try yourself! I did.
