Deze pagina gaat over de kracht van het juweel bij religieuze overtuigingen, over spirituele ladingen die het juweel vertegenwoordigd. 

Jewellery and religion

Religion also has an effect on jewellery. Islam, for instance, considers the wearing of gold by men as a social taboo  and many religions have regulations against excessive display of jewellery.
Chinese jewellery designs were very religion-oriented and contained Buddhist symbols, a tradition which continues to this day.

India was the first country to mine diamonds, with some mines dating back to 296 BC. India traded the diamonds, realising their valuable qualities. This trade almost vanished 1,000 years after Christianity grew as a religion, as Christians rejected the diamonds which were used in Indian religious amulets. Along with Arabians from the Middle East restricting the trade.
Today, many of the jewellery designs and traditions are still used and jewellery is everyday in Indian ceremonies and weddings.
