Adornment of the human body is a cultural practice commonly found among all races and nationalities. These adornments represent their identities. Humans have created decorative pieces called jewelry, and each item plays a different role. Jewelry made from valuable materials is often considered expensive and symbolizes a wealthy status, as in this capitalist world, expensive objects are associated with the rich. Jewelry reflects a person's character, which is often intertwined with various subcultures. The materials used in jewelry represent one's sense of self, with markings on the body showcasing their character and spiritual connection to the object. The selection of materials is driven by the desire to express different facets of their identities. Those who fail to grasp the true meaning of these identities will not understand the genuine reasons for wearing these items. In the 21st century, global warming has spurred a move towards more sustainable design. Environmentally friendly production has become the new trend, where materials are chosen to reflect the essence of true adornment, while also being mindful of the environment. This growing environmental awareness has inspired action to support a long-lasting and eco-friendly environment.
