There were many people at my church that wanted rosaries for themselves and to give as presents. After the overwhelming load of work we had we figured that we were going to take a break for a while. Now we are on our break and in February is when we will do a lot of research and slowly begin with the jewelry again. Making jewelry is harder than most people think. Its not like matching a bunch of beads theres work behind the beauty. I find jewelry very complex. In the eyes of a designer the colors have to look nice with an eye catching flow. The length in the wire/string has to be a certain length to look right. Even so much as a wrongly cut wire can affect the quality on the clasps and the way that the necklace connects together. Personally I think that rosaries are most complex because where the wire splits they can't look all roughed up and jagged or else they don't come out looking nice. Adding accessories is very hard as well because it could become more complex with the rest of the beading. Sometimes it could be many minutes before I decide which bead is going to go next. The hardest part for me is choosing color and pattern. Theres so many colors and differently shaped beads to choose from. Also sizes there's variety in jewel sizes and how the different sizes appeal to the rest of the beads matters big time. All big beads and a midget bead may not look so nice together.So when youre making jewerly its important to make good

The African Diamond Trade is a large cycle of exploitation. An estimated 65% of diamonds mined worldwide originate in Africa (Cahill 2009). In 2016, the U.S. diamond industry grew 4% to reach $40 billion, approximately half of a global $80 billion industry (DeBeers Group 2017). But how do these diamonds make it from African river banks to American engagement rings? According to Time Magazine, there are 6 steps that take diamonds from the ground to the jewelry store; exploration, mining, sorting, cutting and polishing, manufacturing, and retailing (John and Jones 2015). Each of these steps adds value to the final product that is offered in jewelry stores worldwide but this value isn’t added fairly to those who create the most value.
The most common style were the long pearl necklaces in all 1920s jewelry pieces, it was very popular to wear layers of them with 60 inches long. Any women could afford them because of the fake pearls and they were usually light pastel colors instead of plain white. Also the Dog collar necklace was one of the most common necklaces, there was different designs like triangle, square, trapezoid, or pointed oval stones, most recognized as chokers because of how low it was from the neck. Similar, Drop Earring were equally important since women wore short hair, it was necessary to have an accessory to expose and draw attention to the naked neck. Normally it was 2-3 inches long accompanied with a diamond. However, earrings with diamond were usually worn for formal events representing good wealth. Additionally, bracelets also were an item decorative to cover the arm with fully bangles to make it more attractive and fashionable.

Furthermore, the lifestyle both women want ends up in disaster however, one ends in death while the other in hard labor. In "The Necklace", the wife ends up losing her friend’s expensive necklace which causes her to work hard to earn enough money to pay of a new one. Due to all the work she loses her beauty. In contrast, whereas in "The Jewels" the constant attendance of the opera house during the winter causes her to die of inflammation which resulted a deep sorrow towards the husband. Both wife’s lived life differently. Both tries to find the best way to fulfill their desire for the good
“The Necklace” is about a woman of lower class who wants to become different than her true self. At this ball, she acts to be someone who is wealthy for the night to impress those around her because everything for her seems to be about money and fame. The song, “Just a Girl” relates to the story because it shows how she let the money get to her, what she is like when she sees her old friend after many harsh years, what her husband thinks of her, and lastly how she confused where she stood in the class systems.
Gold jewelry demand runs high in South Asia, East Asia and the Middle East. Women in the Sub-Continent would use gold as adornments and or store of value. Smart housewives prefer their savings in gold jewelry instead of holding it in cash form and it is passed onto, in gifted form, to daughters and sons at the time of wedding.
Jewelry purchases are highly discretionary because they are heavily affected by adverse trends in the general economy and are measured by disposable consumer income. The first half of fiscal 2003 can be described as a lackluster economy, lower consumer confidence and an unstable geopolitical environment. However, general economic conditions and consumer confidence improved in the second half of fiscal 2003, resulting in increased sales. Since the economy has taken some major strides towards recovery, the jewelry industry represents a bullish market. Large and small retailers are evaluating expansion opportunities outside of the traditional regional mall venue.
The Necklace also displays distinctive realism in the use of socioeconomic influences which are essential to the plot. The major conflict in the story would be absent and the theme would not be obtainable without Mathilde Loisel’s insecurity about her own socioeconomic reputation. An example of Loisel’s self-deprivation nature is presented when she realizes she does not have a necklace, she says “I shall look absolutely no one. I would almost rather not go to the party” (Maupassant, sec. 3). Another example of the self-conflict caused by social pressure is Loisel’s immediate attempt to replace the necklace and her reluctance to speak to her friend Madame Forestier about the necklace for ten whole years. If she were not conflicted by societal pressures she might have avoided the whole situation altogether. The Necklace establishes a realistic difference in value between the necklaces and proposed clothing. Her husband proposes flowers which were valued 10 franks so in any case if she had chosen the flowers there would have been an insignificant economic loss. Her decision not to tell her friend about the necklace ends up costing her seven times the worth of the original. The roses symbolize the simpler things in life to the theme of the story. Mathilde Loisel’s withered appearance at the end
As I did research on how others interpreted the story, the same conclusion would pop up. The necklace was used as a symbol of higher class of wealth. We use symbolic items to try and fit into societies belief of “fancy”. The deeper meaning is within the true value of the necklace. It is a fake just as she is! She is trying to be something she is not and ends up losing the necklace which holds a false value as well. This is why a person should not take everything as it
