Don't Wear Small Talk (NSFW)






I don't wear jewelry. Most people don't wear jewelry, I mean really wear it. It might be a lost art. Certainly, everyone has some kind of metal doodads, maybe even agglomerations of them. There is no doubt that more jewelry exists in the world than has ever existed before so unsurprisingly it is more unexceptional than ever to have or to wear. In my opinion to properly wear a piece of jewelry, the jewelry itself must be a statement. Any statement will do as long as you believe in it (as the wearer). Most jewelery however, is more like smalltalk in an elevator. 



Don't wear small talk. Don't wear jewelry that comments politely about the weather. If a pendant suggests a generic sentiment that no one can actually disagree with like "love", it is pointless. If the earrings do nothing other than "compliment" your blouse then you are being repetitive. If a bracelet does nothing other than "showcase" the stones in it, then you are hiding the depth of your personality behind a mundane image of prosperity. Worst of all, if you are tacking on a ring for the sole reason of wearing something, you are  practically saying nonsense for the sake of hearing your own voice. With these in mind, it is very difficult to wear jewelry and most people do it in a completely uninspiring way (the way they live their lives).

So, I abstain from wearing jewelry. It seems wise to not engage in something unless you have the time, resources and dedication to do it to the highest level. I do not, when it comes to jewelry. But if I did wear it, I would wear something like this.
