Why do so many people choose to buy expensive jewelry?
Well, the only reason that comes to mind is that it’s a way for them to show off their social status or wealth. In fact, it’s not just expensive jewelry, but anything that costs a lot of dough, from cars, to bags, to pricey clothing also. There’s a friend of mine who wears a lot of jewelry and she goes around telling people where she got them and how much she paid for them. As a matter of fact, I don’t really think what she wears are pretty at all, but she takes a lot of pride in them.
