This is just a small fun post with some interesting jewellery :) It origins from the discussion that took place under this blog post. It might sound funny if I write that one is the prettier the bigger and heavier jewellery she wears. However, there were times when this statement made sense. The are places on this planet that it still does!
What do you think about big and heavy jewellery? Is it true that the bigger the better?
