According to a recent KPMG study the largest jewellery
market is the United States with a market share of 30.8%,
Japan, India and China and the Middle East each with 8
- 9% and finally Italy with 5%. The authors of the study
predict a dramatic change in market shares by 2015, where
the market share of the United States will have dropped
to around 25%, and China and India will increase theirs
to over 13%. The Middle East will remain more or less
constant at 9%, whereas Europe's and Japan's marketshare
will be halved and become less than 4% for Japan, and
less than 3% for the biggest individual European countries:
Italy and the UK.
Jewellery (also spelled jewelry, see spelling differences)
is a personal ornament, such as a necklace, ring, or bracelet,
made from gemstones, precious metals or other materials.
The word jewellery is derived from the word jewel, which
was anglicised from the Old French "jouel" circa
the 13th century. Further tracing leads back to the Latin
word "jocale", meaning plaything. Jewellery
is one of the oldest forms of body adornment; recently
found 100,000 year-old beads made from Nassarius shells
are thought to be the oldest known jewellery.
Although during earlier times jewellery was created for
practical uses such as wealth storage and pinning clothes
together, in recent times it has been used almost exclusively
for decoration. The first pieces of jewellery were made
from natural materials, such as bone, animal teeth, shell,
wood and carved stone. Jewellery was often made for people
of high importance to show their status and, in many cases,
they were buried with it.
Jewellery has been made to adorn nearly every body part,
from hairpins to toe rings and many more types of jewellery.
While high-quality is made with gemstones and precious
metals, there is also a growing demand for art jewellery
where design and creativity is prized above material value.
In addition, there is the less-costly costume jewellery,
made from less-valuable materials and mass-produced. New
variations include wire sculpture (wrap) jewellery, using
anything from base metal wire with rock tumbled stone
to precious metals and precious gemstones.
