The use of lucky charm to ward off evil and harness good luck has been practiced for thousands of years, and even scientific evidence have shown that a person’s confidence and happiness increases when carrying a lucky charm or amulet. Therefore, gems set in jewellery are often worn not just for aesthetic reasons but also as a symbol of wealth, commitment and culture as well as to improve one’s aura and inner being.
For most women, it is the inherent nature of jewellery that they find irresistible – like how it makes them feel beautiful and confident. Some also believe that everything may come and go, but jewellery is forever. If you’re looking for something that will never go out of style or favour, here are this season’s most coveted high jewellery drops that will steal your breath away.
