Silver Necklaces – Instinctive Style
If you have an instinct for good jewellery and you simply know the right silver necklaces that will match the right outfit for every occasion, you could be expressing a very human trait. In fact a recent report suggests that the creation of necklaces reveals early man’s intelligence. Creating and wearing jewellery, albeit not quite the sophisticated silver jewellery we wear today, is thought to indicate thought processes that are distinctly ‘human’.
Shell Beads and Silver Necklaces
In fact, archaeologists and evolutionists believe that the moment our ancestors began to use ornaments and jewellery suggest a key moment in evolution, when we became ‘modern humans’. There is evidence that dates back 100,000 years suggesting natural objects were modified into jewellery in southern Africa. But new evidence suggests that Europeans were creating jewellery as much as 200,000 years ago. Silver necklaces may be the modern equivalent of shell beads, or perforated shells used as pendants.
Necklaces – The Key to Evolutionary Success?
A report in The Times newspaper quotes from a report in the Journal of Archaeological Science by Solange Rigaud: “It has been repeatedly argued that personal ornaments are one of the innovations that emerged in Africa among early modern humans, and that they represent behaviours that allowed them to migrate out of Africa and determined their evolutionary success…”
The next time someone dismisses your love of silver necklaces and jewellery as being girly or frivolous, it might be worthwhile pointing out that when our ancestors wore necklaces it was a sign of human evolution!
A Passion for Fashion? You’re Only Human!
Our obsession with fashion and looking good is all tied up to our evolutionary instincts. Just as peacocks flash their feathers in the animal world, humans dress to impress the opposite sex. Being able to attract a worthy mate is crucial to human evolution and the survival of your genes. Wearing silver jewellery sends out very positive vibes to the opposite sex – silver suggests quality and value, it indicates self esteem and strength. And beautiful silver jewellery can highlight your assets. Silver rings can accentuate elegant fingers, silver necklaces can elongate elegant necks and bracelets frame slim wrists.
Silver necklaces are also valuable romantic gifts – wearing a silver necklace given to you by your partner can tell the world who your heart lies with, just as an eternity, engagement or wedding ring can speak volumes. It’s thought our ancestors wore makeshift necklaces as symbols of affection or as thoughtful expressions – which is why archaeologist say wearing ornaments marks an important shift in the thought processes of human evolution.
