Jewellery is sometimes seen as wealth storage
Jewellery has been made to adorn nearly every body part, from hairpins to toe rings and many more types of jewellery. Jewellery is sometimes seen as wealth storage or functionally as holding a garment or hair together. While high-quality ornaments are made with gemstones and precious metals. Such as silver or gold, there is also a growing demand for art jewellery where design and creativity is prized above material value.
It has from very early times also been regarded as a form of personal adornment. In addition, there is the less costly costume jewellery, made from lower value materials and mass-produced. In some cases people were buried with their jewellery. Other variations include wire sculpture (wrap) jewellery, using anything from base metal wire with rock tumbled stone to precious metals and precious gemstones.

Gems are silicates which can be very stable, hard minerals. Like gemstones, one of the characteristics of a precious metal is its rarity. A few gems are oxides and only one gem, diamond, is composed of a single element, carbon. Often, new names will be created for ordinary sounding minerals which sound prettier or more valuable, such as Moldavite for the green variety of tektites.
It could not be "precious" if it were common! This means that the metal must be malleable, that it can be bent, hammered, or otherwise shaped. Two other characteristics are also important. There are also many gemstones that are not true minerals, but which are gemstone varieties of recognized minerals.
