People make things more difficult than they have to in many cases and finding jewelry wholesale for most is no exception to this. I think that with the access we have to a world of information through the internet it is quite easy. You can find anything you are looking for at wholesale prices, you just have to be willing to take the time needed to sort through all the garbage to find the jewels.
For starters you must know that there is a world of difference between jewelry stores online and their wholesale counterparts. The regular online jewelry stores are just like the ones you would find at your local mall selling jewelry at highly marked up retail prices. The wholesale jewelry companies sell at wholesale only and it is through them that you can find your bargains.
What you need to do first is find a source of wholesalers to check with in order to find the best deals for the items you are searching for. You can buy wholesale directories online for this purpose but with the information readily available at your fingertips it isn't really necessary. Just fire up your browser and use your favorite search engine to find a source for the jewelry you are looking for. If you are searching for moissanite jewelry, then type it in like this 'moissanite jewelry wholesale' to hone in on search results for just that subject.
Just so you know, most of the wholesalers online sell at the prices they offer in bulk only which is why they offer them at such low prices. This may make your search a little more difficult if you are just looking for one ring or one stone but there are companies out there that will sell in smaller quantities, you just have to be willing to take the time to find them.
On the other hand if you are a non techie or just don't like the idea of buying jewelry online you may want to consider enrolling in one of the discount buyer clubs like Costco or Sam's Wholesale. I don't think you will find the prices as good as those on the internet but they will be better than those at most regular jewelry stores.
Just keep this in mind when you are shopping online. Make sure that the wholesaler you are buying jewelry wholesale from has a refund or exchange policy and guarantee on the items they sell for authenticity. Do not buy from a company that does not offer these benefits.
Jewelry has a long history and being in our world in the ancient times, the wearing of this would be seen by others as a sense of power. It was also worn as a sign of wealth and that is why it is sometimes passed down from generation down.
In tribes it was used to show modification to ones body in some tribes women wore neck rings to make ones neck longer and once these were worn they couldn't be taken off because the neck would not support itself. The tribe's women did this to just look different from all the others in the tribe.
Even though the use to wear this items showed power it was often worn to show signs of a message. Whether it be for power or to just look good its use spread wide through out the world. Back in these times they were used for that but now it is just used to make people appear to be fancy.
Body jewelry is not just earrings and neck rings it is now necklaces and bracelets and anklets and so much more. The term body jewelry now means anywhere and everywhere where it can be placed is where people will put it. Today jewelry is often made with high quality materials and is often quite pricey.
Most body jewelry is made from plastics or metals but more of them are made from wealthy stones or silver. There are all kinds of different body jewelry that can be bought in many stores worldwide.
The good thing about body jewelry is that anyone can wear it. Unlike back in the day wear only the noble and stead people could wear these items now everyone and anyone can put these things upon themselves. Today body jewelry is used to show a person's uniqueness. Some people go out and get pierced in many places that only crazy people would think of but they are doing it. In a lot of instances people putting these things elsewhere is not un normal to be had most people think it is normal nowadays because everyone is doing it.
For instance, it is common for gangs and gang members to wear body jewelry that is termed as "bling-bling" but since famous artists, rappers and pop singers have been displaying the same fashion, it has become part of pop culture. So instead of promoting exclusivity, it has become a fashion statement to adorn oneself with this particular type of body jewelry.
Whatever the case is, it shows that body jewelry is here to stay. Perhaps it is this generation's way of saying, "out with the old" and "in with the new" is what is here today.
Body jewelry has been an influential part of many cultures all over the planet for thousands of years. I would imagine one of the first that comes to mind would be belly dancers of the Middle East, or the beauties in India or adorn their foreheads with jewels. In many societies it was also used to signify a particular class.
In modern times the use of body jewelry has reached the mainstream of our society with even grandmothers going to local piercing shops to get belly rings. Many people are beginning to realize that their bodies are another area which they can adorn with different types of decorations and jewelry to make them even more beautiful. The use of belly rings in particular calls attention to the mid section, although some I have seen would do better not to do so!
The body jewelry industry is exploding with people getting piercings in every imaginable place and some even unimaginable, well to me anyway. Some of the more common and semi-normal areas for piercings besides the obvious ear lobe are the nose, eyebrow, nipples, and of course the popular navel. There is an almost unlimited supply of different jewelry made for all of these varieties.
If you have pierced your nose there are different options you can choose from such as a circular barbell or a stud which can be a simple post with a ball on the end or it can be jeweled such as the diamond ones you have probably seen. The body jewelry used in the eyebrow is similar in style also allowing for the choice between barbells and even dangling charms.
The jewelry used in the navel and for pierced nipples is very popular and gaining in popularity all the time. Personally I am a little apprehensive about the nipple piercing but who knows? If Janet Jackson can handle it, I can!
It doesn't matter what you decide to have pierced, there is a piece of jewelry that exists to adorn it in many different colors and styles. The jewelry is made in many different price points as well from cheaper costume jewelry prices to real diamonds.
One thing to remember is that even more so than with a piercing like the ear lobes, other areas of the body may be even more susceptible to infection so you need to take extra precautions to keep the area clean. Also make sure that you aren't allergic to the particular type of material you are considering placing in your piercing. Only go to certified reputable establishments that also are licensed by the health department in your area.
