Jewellery is a universal form of adornment. The earliest known jewelry dated back to some 115,000 years back. It is likely that from an early date it was worn as a protection from the dangers of life or as a mark of status or rank. With time designs jewellery changed denoting the contemporary societal and political scenario. For example, renaissance jewels shared the age’s passion for splendor. Jewelleries from 1960 onwards have been defined as contemporary jewellery. New technologies and non-precious materials, including plastics, paper, and textiles, have overturned the notions of status traditionally implicit in jewellery. Avant-garde artist-jewellers have explored the interaction of jewellery with the body, pushing the boundaries of scale and wearability to the limits.
