Jewelry is any ornament or artifact worn to adorn and beautify the human body. Much contradictory to popular belief, jewelry is not just for the female kind. Traditionally, jewelry was also worn by men. This I guess, has to do with the fact that along with being used as a means to embellish our bodies, jewelry was also worn to display wealth in the olden times. Jewelry was also, in fact, used for trade. Jewelry meant currency in ancient times. Jewelry has also long been used to declare status or membership to a certain group or religion. All these meanings of jewelry have been passed on from our ancestors to us, so that even today beautifully crafted jewelry is a sign of wealth, Jewelry can be sold for money which can buy you things, and it helps you declare your marital status (as with the Western wedding ring or the Indian Mangalsutra).
Vermeil, pronounced 'ver may', is a type of jewelry, wherein silver is plated with gold. It contains gold plating over 925 sterling silver. The number 925 indicates that one piece contains 925 on thousand parts of silver. In terms of percentage, it can be expressed as 92.5%. Gold coating over sterling silver gives this jewelry a yellowish color. Hence, it is sometimes referred to as yellow gold. The age-old process of gilding gold over silver at high temperatures for manufacturing this jewelry was discontinued mainly because mercury used in the process caused blindness in the craftsmen. Hence, electrolysis, which is a much safer process, is now used to produce this jewelry.
The worn-out cone shells are Puka shells. These shells comprise mollusks. When these mollusks die, the shell knocks about in the ocean and a hole wears in at the center of these shells. When these cone shells lose their tip and the pointed edge is eroded, Puka shells come into existence. These shells are thereby used to make Puka jewelry. These shells are polished by the ocean. The natural hole is used to strung the shells together. The Hawaiian word for 'hole' is Puka.
A round face is shaped similar to a circle in that it is equally round with soft curves. If you are looking for ways to elongate a round face, you can do so with a long necklace or dangle earrings.
