10 Types of Jewelry That Can Help You Read a Person Like an Open Book

year ago

It’s no secret that there’s a direct connection between the things we wear and our personality. Wearing different clothes, shoes, and accessories can all raise our spirits and boost our confidence.

But when it comes to jewelry, this connection is even more obvious. These pieces serve us longer than clothing and sometimes become something more than just a beautiful accessory. And if you know what different pieces of jewelry stand for, you’ll learn how to read people like an open book.

Playful and cute accessories

People who choose cute and playful pieces of jewelry in the shapes of animals, toys, or charms are still children inside. They are friendly, sociable, and love to be in the spotlight. These people are always ready to help and value a harmonious relationship.

Vintage jewelry


If you prefer vintage jewelry, then you’re honest and hard-working. These people value traditions and treat others with respect. They take everything seriously and can be stern sometimes. The only issue these people may face is their inability to enjoy the present.

Jewelry with logos

Logotypes are a form of visual communication. A person who chooses branded pieces shows their connection with brand identity. And it’s not hard to read this message because most designers have their own styles and shapes.

People who choose jewelry with logos often try to impress others and emphasize their status.

Silver jewelry

Silver jewelry indicates that its wearers wouldn’t spend money on something to impress others. They don’t feel the need to brag about what they have. Those who prefer silver jewelry are self-confident, independent, and appreciate natural beauty.

Sparkling jewelry

By wearing sparkling jewelry, people try to make themselves more attractive and draw attention to their status and wealth.

According to studies, people usually prefer objects that are displayed on a shiny surface to those placed on a matte one. Some psychologists believe that our attraction to glossy and shiny objects stems from our innate need to seek out water, which is the most valuable resource.

Jewelry ornamented with natural stones

Open and sociable people tend to choose jewelry ornamented with natural stones or made from wood, shells, or other organic materials. They love nature and value natural things in life.

These people tend to choose grand or extraordinary pieces that seem to shout, “I am here, look at me!”

Extroverts by nature, these people call for attention and recognition. They are good at improvising and are artistic, adventurous, and equipped with sharp minds. They always welcome new opportunities and approach life with a flexible way of thinking, able to adjust to any changes that happen in life.

Handmade accessories

If a person chooses handmade jewelry, they enjoy having something no one else has. While wearing these pieces, they express their originality.

Talismans and amulets

Various symbols, like an evil eye or the hamsa, are universal. Jewelry with symbols like these doesn’t just emphasize a person’s status, but it also reveals the wearer’s soul. These accessories show that a person is on their journey to self-discovery and spiritual growth.

Nowadays, lobe piercings have become very popular.

If a person wears more than one earring in their ear, this means that they are a planner. They stick to their schedule and always write everything in their calendar to be sure they don’t miss anything.

What kind of jewelry do you usually wear?

I don't agree with their take on people who have multiple piercings on their ear lobes. I've had multiple piercings since I was 13 years old and I'm definitely not tied to a calendar. I don't find myself being a "planner" per se any more than any common person, and maybe less. I've always been more easy going and love to be open to a more interesting lifestyle. Going where the day leads you sometimes and last minute picnics, hiking, exploring, and discovering new places is the most fun you can have. I'm not sure where they got their info from that lead to their opinion but I can't agree.
