Bling Hip Hop Jewelry

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Bling bling is none other than slang used for Hip Hop Jewelry. These are essentially large pieces of diamonds, iced out in chunks and strung together with platinum or gold. Hip hop bling is so ‘in’ that even the imitation ones make for a million dollar industry.

So what makes bling bling jewelry so special, you ask? Want to know why it’s gained so much popularity in the fashion circles? Try Googling a few images and you’ll find out for yourself. These pieces of creation are in no way less of an eye-candy than the young ladies adorning them. The big chunks of diamonds shine and sparkle and their glitter can hugely contribute to the glamour quotient of any outfit.

By now you must totally agree that a set of bling-blings can certainly get you going places. All set to get your hands on them? Well, always keep in mind that your bling won’t blink without the right set of diamonds. So let’s take a look at the basics of diamond shopping first. Color, Clarity, Carat and Cut. These are the four C’s of a diamond. Better the color and clarity, and the higher the carat, greater the cost of the diamond. However, this does not hold true for the cut. The cost of a diamond would increase with size and lesser number of cuts. Why bling bling sparkles so much is because of the huge, chunky diamonds that reflect light so much better.

Now of course, not everyone can afford such expensive diamond jewelry. Moreover, trends change so often with bling bling hip hop jewelry that you could risk spending a lot on jewelry that would get out-dated very soon, sometimes even within a week or two. Do not despair as imitation can most definitely save your day. Available in a range of designs and looking just as good as the real thing, these are really easy on the pocket and give you the luxury of owning the latest, as and when they are in. There are several websites online where purchasing bling is made easy from the comforts of your home. Some websites even allow you to compare prices over a range of stores so that you can get the best deal.
