What are the styles of Japanese jewelry?
Traditional Japanese ornaments such as origami, fabric or braided rope jewelry are true works of art. More contemporary jewelry is also available, inspired by Western culture. These beauty accessories are often adorned with Japanese motifs rich in symbolic meanings.
Traditional Japanese jewelry
Japanese beauty accessories have been around for centuries. In the Land of the Rising Sun, geishas wear beautiful obi and fans to complement their kimono. They also use kanzashi and combs to embellish their elaborate hairstyles.
Traditional Japanese jewelry is handmade according to ancestral methods of weaving, folding and painting. Japanese paper jewelry, for example, is the result of a very old know-how. Japanese craftsmen pay great attention to details. This is why each piece is so refined. Among the materials used, we find silk, cotton, paper, lacquer, wood, precious stones, gold, copper and silver. Jewelry decorated with emblematic symbols such as the crane, the dragon, the samurai, the cherry blossom or the lotus flower pay a real tribute to the culture of the country.
Contemporary Japanese jewelry
Very much focused on hair accessories, Japanese jewelry has evolved with the Western influence. Today, we also see many necklaces, bracelets, rings and other pieces influenced by Japanese culture. We often find fabrics, washi paper and spiritual symbols. Japanese costume jewelry is also imbued with pop culture. Thus, it is not uncommon to encounter Hello Kitty pendants and other kawaii figures in the streets of Japan.
