As beautiful as they are to look at, I just don't get it.  I've never "gotten" jewlery or understood the appeal.  I cannot imagine spending money on, basically, decorations. 
Am I wierd?

Am I wierd?

Yes, very weird  Lips Sealed

They are aesthetically beautiful. Just pretty to look at. It's like saying you don't understand why something beautiful is beautiful!!! Ahhh no help for you there. Tongue

But seriously, traditionally bridal jewelery was very important because most of the time it was her Mahr, the most wealth she ever owned herself and gave the bride a sense of security. Her jewelery was always hers to do what she pleased with it and no one has control of it except her. If ever in need she could always sell her jewelery because it never goes out of style and in general the price of gold/silver/jewels continually goes up so is an excellent investment.

Also the connection between mothers and daughters and jewelery is quite interesting. Most of my friends and family wore something that belonged to their mother's 'bridal jewelery' on their own weddings. And it's interesting that Khadija radiahu gave her daughter her necklace upon her own daughters wedding. And when Rasululllah saw saw the necklace in the ransom for the prisoners in Madina he was quite affected.

Anyway onto to more pretty pics....

Oh don't get me wrong, I love looking at it, and I certainly see the beauty in it, and I even understand how it can make people look prettier Smiley  What I don't get is people actually spending vast sums of money on it.  or wanting to own it.
