Jewelry - a magic word that radiates strong smiles, diamond-like glittering eyes and deep, longing sighs. Ever since humanity evolved into an intelligent straight-backed species, there is evidence that jewels in the form of precious crude metals and stones were gathered and considered to be splendor. There are several archaeological finds of handmade simple and elegant jewelry in different parts of the world. It is no wonder that modern-day jewelry has gained such an important status in the global market and a nation's wealth is determined by the possession and exploitation of gold and diamond mines.
Competition among the best brands is at its optimum level and today's jewelry is the busiest in the professional market, trying to face the endless craving for priceless elegant designs. With the revolution in industry and communication, world-class jewelry has come to the reach of the urban man and is no longer limited to remaining in the prized possession of royalty and movie stars. No matter what the budget, jewelry, in today's world is available in many different shapes to suit your individual style. Every variety of jewelry has long been the ultimate fashion statement and has stayed so far until date. The former small-scale jewelry stores have been transformed into huge corporate giants who are splashing thousands of fresh designs every year. It is a fairly impossible task to get the dizzying number of brands flowing in the current market. But based on antiquity and their current grip on the world economy, I will list here some famous jewelry stores and brands.
