Jewellery

Jewellery, Jewelry or Joaillerie is defined as: "​Decorative ​objects ​worn on ​your ​clothes or ​body that are usually made from ​valuable ​metals, such as ​gold and ​silver, and ​precious ​stones".
"Ornaments, such as bracelets, necklaces, or rings, especially when made of precious metals set with gems."
"Objects of personal adornment, as necklaces, rings, bracelets, or brooches, esp. when made of precious metals, gemstones, or pearls and distinguished by very fine design and craft."
"Consists of small decorative items worn for personal adornment, such as brooches, rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Jewellery may be attached to the body or the clothes, and the term is restricted to durable ornaments, excluding flowers for example."

Jewelry is typically the American English spelling of the word while other countries such as Australia, England and South Africa use the alternative spelling Jewellery and European countries often defining items as Joaillerie.

Jewellery has been around for a hell of a long time with examples being found in African caves dating back 75,000 years. Shell beads seem the most common early human jewellery and it was some time before stone and precious metals became common adornments.
