I often associate gold chains with seafarers. The reason why? Well, because I grew up with the notion that seafarers are rich and they have this big salaries and that they can always buy jewelry, shining ones, build a house in no time at all and buy a family car. I often see them wearing glittering gold necklaces, shimmering rings and other blings.
For some it is true, I know of a few women whose husbands are seafarers and are earning big time. Not only that their husbands are wearing gold chains around their necks, but also the wives too, more than what their husbands have.
Well, jewelry is indeed a status symbol. When you wear fancy blings, many eyebrows would raise, but if you wear the true ones, you will really be noticed. With all the glitz and glamour it brings to you, you would surely make heads turn. Gold chains, dangling earrings, bangles and other jewelry, they all mean money. You can’t buy these stuff if you don’t have enough money, as they cost such a hefty amount, I mean the real ones. But the fancy ones, well, you can just buy them at the sidewalk and still strut it with style and you don’t have to worry about them getting snatched or stolen.
