Hi, I am from India, it is common for ladies to wear jewels like necklace, earring etc. But it is alright if they wear them for any occasions. Some people wear a lot of jewels even when they go for shopping. Why? Today I found a lady travelling in a local train, she is going for shopping, she was wearing atleast 100 grams of gold on her body. Don't you think she may inspire some thief or chain snatcher???

If that lady walks in the street here in our place, the jewelry wil disappear in seconds. I think, women who wear too much jewel are just wearing it to brag. You don't wear too much jewel, that's a rule or you'll look like a bling yourself. I wear a maximum of 2 jewelry, even in special ocassions. Too much jewelry will get the attention to your blings, not to your face or your self.

The lady I saw was travelling by train, and she got into the train at a station which is near to the most crowded market place in our city.

I don't know what the hell that woman on the train was thinking but what she did could be very dangerous because she is attracting a lot of snatchers. But as a woman, I would definitely say that wearing accessories not necessarily jewels is essential for a woman because we consider it like a clothing to us too. It adds something on the way we look and we feel better if we wear them but I don't think wearing too much is necessary.

Thanks for your reply carla, Just to tell a fact, in a traditional South Indian marriage, the bride use to wear to a max of 1 kg of gold ornaments. Ya, it is equivalent to 1000 grams. Am not joking. Am serious. The family of the bride will agree to put so much jewel to the bride, which makes the bridegroom to accept this girl as his wife, otherwise he will look for some other girl.

thats for sure it will be eye catching for thief...but on the other hand lets understand why women loves wearing this jewelry...sometimes it is ridiculous to think why women love wearing jewelry, it is like asking why human need food, jewelry plays a significant part in womens dressing regime, it is considered to be intregrated component of style and fashion for every woman dressing sense today

I accept. But my mom use to wear only a single gold chain which has the religious string inside it, which is our custom when somebody gets married. Apart from that she doesnt wear any jewel unless she goes to a party or function. That particular gold chain was snatched when she was returning from a shop. So the chain snatcher doesnt even mind snatching a religious chain, why does he bother about other valuable items? So when a lady is wearing about 250 grams of gold, is it really needed? Why not just a 10 gram or 20 grams?

well, even I dont like to wear lot of jewellery. some people are even murdered by thieves just for 2 or 3 chains and earings. more over while there are lot of colourful attractive jewellery available in the market why do people go for old style yet costly jewels which carries the risk of even taking away one's life. I think safety is more important than beauty

I have seen some women wearing lots of jewelry I figure that they must like to wear all the jewelry. I wear some jewelry but only on special occasions and then I only wear a necklace and earrings. I do not wear bracelets I just wear my watch on my arm everyday. Yes if someone wears jewelry worth lots of money that a thief may get ideas and decide to rob that woman.

it's normal for her to wear jewels for shopping .women always hope to be pretty ,especially when going to some public occasion such as shop ,super market,they want to attract the attention of others around .I will wear earring that is light ,the whole set of jewel will definitely add to my burden ~and I also worry about bringing the thief~

Nature is the beauty of girls, so natural like the decoration, very often,they prefer to spend time and money to spend beautiful on their own bodies,in order to attract the attention of men.

This is how indian culture is. One common thing among woman is they are more cautious and more picky when they comes to the topic how beautiful do they look. Moreover, it is women who motivates a woman to wear more jewelery to mark their status in a society.

I tend to t hink of women who wear alot of jewels very materialsitc and selfish. Honestly I could care less if they had over a million jewels to wear it will never impress me due to the fact that I just don't like people who are selfish and can't seem to get over themselves.

balaji, i think you are from south india.. normally ladies here have a lot of inferiority and superiority complex.. they try to show off that they are rich.. so they choose wearing valuable ornaments.. but thats of no use for anyone.. they must realize that but they wont.. anyway don't spoil your eyes and mind by staring at those assets.. lets hope at least the upcoming generations will not continue these type of unwanted publicities..

well that does sound like quite a bit much but I think wearing jewelry makes us feel sexy. At least I feel like I have more self confidence when I wear a bit of jewelry like earrings or a necklace.

woman like to be nice and beautiful when wearing jewels but sometimes we did not notice whether it is a real gold or not. Nowadays many accessories like gold but it just a cheap one. that's why she not afraid of thief. But,remember for all the woman out there. Even though we wearing a cheap accessories, the thief is still on eyes at you. Not only can rob you,but also can hurt you.

Wearing jewellary is part of indian tradition. But it should suitable to dressing and occasion. Even if you have made careful observation of vegetable or fish seller ladies, they wear more gold than we do daily.I think they are quiet strong to protect themself from thiefs. Can you think that, they travell in trains and buses wearing that much of jewellary

well, i am actually not a lady-with-jewels kind. i rarely wear shiny things on my body, just because i am a tomboy girl. but i also see there are so many ladies wearing jewelries. it happens because of three reasons: 1. they are wealthy so they have to show people that they are 2. they are beautiful so they have to show people that they are 3. they are none of the above so they can pretend that they are just my opinion, though... ^__^

Those people wearing jewels without any occasion and the worst is that they wear it in a public that they cannot aware of bad people that maybe interested in those jewels or maybe that is the reason to loss their lives... Wearing jewels is really good to women because that will give them charm and beauty. But it should wear depend on any occasions...

Me, I'm not wearing too much jewelries because it would just be lost especially in crowded places. It depends on the occasion. I would wear jewelries depending on my outfit and on the occasion but still, I don't want to wear a lot of jewelries because its heavy and it hides the real beauty of a woman. :)

Of course yes, when you live in a depress situation or place, just control not to show how much you have to avoid unwanted violent from neighbors attention, but wearing jewelries is a practice of fashion and make it more practical when exposed to party or something to gather with friends and to give pleasure from one personal intention, like for Vanity
