Man's appearance has always been of great concern. Since the beginning of time, mankind has sought to improve his appearance through the use of physical modification such as, piercings, foot binding, head boarding, and tattooing. These types of physical modifications are present in nearly every culture from the Celtic and Germanic peoples of Western Europe, and the world-renowned Chinese dynasties to the various Native American tribes who called the Western Hemisphere home, long before the age of Exploration. Although physical modification is common, there is yet another development, which has assisted humanity in always looking their best. The development of mining technology and specially designed tools throughout the world has led to the development of jewelry. Despite the fact that the construction of jewelry takes both skill and technological machinery, it serves no other purpose than setting the wearer a part from his or her fellows. Jewelry constructed out of precious metals such as silver, gold, and platinum has been used by nearly every culture both modern and the ancient to demonstrate differences in wealth, social status, occupation, and political power. The use of jewelry as a ranking system stays with us to this very day. For instance, during the winter and summer games, which allow international athletes to compete with one another, gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded to the top three performers in each event.
While modern jewelers traffic in sterling silver earrings and necklaces, rings are also quite a lucrative item for those in the retail industry. The importance of a ring to Western culture should be obvious, considering the fact that rings are awarded were given as gifts at stages in people's lives. For example, high school and university graduates are given class rings following their graduation. Furthermore, newlyweds often exchange rings the prior to their engagement and during the wedding ceremony. The importance of rings to Western and Eastern societies is as old as these aforementioned societies. For example, feudal lords in Western Europe, who served under their respective kings, were often given weapons and armor as well as silver ring to alert any passerby to the wearer's high political rank and social status. Similarly, ancient Chinese and Japanese scholars were also given either sterling silver rings or copper rings based on their level of education and experience.
The gift of a ring can be also observed in religious ceremonies within the Christian and Catholic traditions. For example, young men are usually gifted a small sterling silver ring upon their confirmation day, while young women often receive either gold or platinum jewelry on this auspicious occasion. In conclusion, jewelry has played a major role in continued development of human society throughout the world. Pendants, hairpins, broaches, necklaces, and rings have been warned to differentiate wealth, political power, and social status. However, these things serve no real purpose except for improving the wearer's self image.

It has been said in common parlance that “, clothes make the man”. This traditional saying is the wine of truth. Research has shown that employees and business people who dress well, and perform daily basic hygiene enjoying a firmer more lucrative relationship with their subordinates and their potential clients. Employees represent the public face of the companies they work for. Employees’ behaviors, diction, hygiene, and work habits are often placed under heavy scrutiny by their employers. One word said in haste, one act done without thinking, one glance at a wrinkled pair of trousers or slacks can end a business relationship before it even starts. It is imperative that businessmen and other professionals purchase quality clothing, and also perform the necessary maintenance such as dry cleaning, washing, and other simple and basic demands, which are required to keep suits and other business attire in the proper condition. This is only the first in ensuring the professional looks their best. Another avenue, which is often employed by businessmen and other professionals, is the addition of a minimum amount of jewelry to their professional ensemble.
Be sure not to overdo it with rings, bracelets, or necklaces, because too many accessories often proves to be quite a distraction for people around you, and can often hinder the wearer when performing many manual tasks such as carrying boxes, writing, shredding documents, and making copies. Furthermore, too much jewelry may also hinder a person's financial security. However, there are methods that can be used to ensure that you possess interesting, unique, and functional accessories without breaking your bank. While gold jewelry is most often worn to demonstrate a person's perceived wealth, social status, and political power, it is not always good to wearer gold to work. Gold tarnishes easily, and is also quite malleable, meaning that it will bend even under the slightest stress. For this reason, many women elect to remove their wedding rings and other jewelry, while engaging in intensive labor such as washing dishes, moving heavy objects, and cleaning. Men also remove gold jewelry while engaging in remodeling operations and yard-work.
A silver bracelet and silver necklace are an excellent addition to any professional or casual ensemble. These types of jewelry can be worn by either men or women, and are also cost effective, when compared to the prices charged for both gold and platinum. Furthermore, silver is a far more durable metal than either of the two that were previously mentioned. Therefore, if you want to work hard, and still look your best, then you might consider purchasing a silver bracelet or a silver necklace to accessorize your wardrobe.
