Jewellery

Ok, can someone please explain to me the fascination that some people (especially women) have with jewelery and “precious” stones? Why spend hundreds or thousands of dollars or Euros for a piece of stone that shines? What’s the point? Except that they look better that common earth stones they have no other usefulness.

Once a year I buy about 50 bucks of fake jewelery from Macys. I don’t despise jewelery per se (it’s nice to have something to wear when going to a party), it’s just that I would never pay for real ones, even if I do have the money for them (Macys’ fake jewelery are good quality anyways). Real jewelery are expensive gimmicks and a huge waste of money in my opinion.

I have seen friends breathing heavily in the sight of a $100,000 diamond stone in a Palo Alto store showroom, while I was literally yawning next to them. What’s the big deal about a shiny object that has no practical usefulness whatsoever?
