  • Description

    NEW YORK DESIGNERS OF FASHION JEWELLERY ARE ENCOURAGING WOMEN TO "THINK BIG" THIS CHRISTMAS. MOST OF THE NEW JEWELS -- FROM MOON RINGS INSPIRED BY SPACE AGE TECHNOLOGY TO COPIES OF PRIMITIVE AFRICAN NECKLACES -- HAVE DESIGNED ON AN EXTRAVAGANT SCALE.

    THE EXTRAVAGANCE ALSO EXTENDS TO THE GEMS USED BY THE DESIGNERS. MANY OF THE DIAMONDS FEATURED IN THE NEW JEWELLERY ARE SO LARGE THAT THEY LOOK LIKE FAKES.

    AND FOR THE WOMEN -- OR THEIR HUSBANDS -- WHO CANNOT AFFORD THE GENUINE ARTICLE, LARGE "BARBARIC" JEWELS ARE IN THE SHOPS, WHICH THE DESIGNERS CLAIM ARE SO FAKE THAT THEY LOOK REAL.

    THERE ARE PRIMITIVE NECKLACES THAT LOOK LIKE HAMMERED GOLD, BRACELETS THAT COPY TEXTURED GOLD, AMULET BELTS WITH DANGLING FISH, AND NECKLACES BASED ON PRIMITIVE GREEK BEADS WHICH ARE LONG ENOUGH TO BE WORN ROUND THE WAIST IF REQUIRED.

    ONE OF THE GREAT ATTRACTIONS THIS CHRISTMAS IS THE SO-CALLED BASIC JEWELLERY, MADE FROM WOOD AND GOLD IN IMITATION OF PRIMITIVE AFRICAN ART. AND FOR THE WOMAN DETERMINED TO BE UP TO DATE AS SHE ENTERS THE 1970S, THERE ARE MOON RINGS -- CHEST JEWELLERY MADE FROM "MOON AGE REFLECTORS" EDGED IN METAL.
