Jewelry is an expression of emotion. An emotion like love, remembrance, or a happy memory. The designer of pieces of jewelry has emotions too. Sometimes serious, enthusiastic, or joking. In this blog post, I show you 5 little jewelry jokes. Jewelry jokes you don’t expect inexpensive jewelry, but they exist!
Little jewelry jokes with time
Real sophisticated ladies, especially in times a bit longer ago, don’t look on their watch. It is impolite wanting to know the time. It looks that you are bored or want to go away. That is the reason that ladies in previous centuries don’t wear a watch.
But… they still want to know what is the time. Jewelers find a solution in beautiful pendants in the shape of an insect. When you spread its wings the watch is peeping out. Real jewelry jokes, don’t you think. And unexpected jewelry jokes.
Little erotic jewelry jokes
At the beginning of the last centuries and the centuries before that people are more prudish than now. That is on the outside. The longing for sex is the same now as in centuries ago. Most men find a way to get ‘their way’, sneaky, nobody sees what they are doing. With the help of their jeweler. The jewelry designer added little jewelry jokes to this snuff box: a secret compartment to put a small photo or piece of hair of your secret lover!
Jewelers want to satisfy their customers and design rings with erotic jewelry jokes. You cannot wear a ring with an erotic design on the outside. Imagina that your wife or the neighbor sees that. No way!
Those rings have lids and under them are erotic pictures or carved erotic images made of bone. Beautiful craftsmanship and sneaky little jewelry jokes for the longing men.
Poisonous little ‘jewelry jokes’
High trees catch a lot of wind. This is a Dutch phrase (literal translation) that means that when you have the power you have to accept a lot of opposition.
Powerful people, nobility, kings, and tsars are powerful and there is a chance that someone kidnaps them, they get caught or an enemy wants to blackmail or torture you. Sometimes there is a moment that you want to take your own life. And then the little jewelry jokes comes in, like a ring with poison.
Jewelers anticipate that feeling by designing rings with a secret locker to put poison in. You can take that poison in times of emergency. I am not sure whether you can call these rings jewelry jokes, but it is anyway a function of that ring you don’t expect.
Little vengeful jewelry jokes
Those same ‘poison’ rings are used by powerful ladies (or maybe men) that want to get rid of their opponent. One of the ways to do that is to give him or her poison. With a ‘poison’ ring you can put the poison easy in someone’s glass. No real jewelry jokes, no joke!
Maybe you know other examples of pieces of jewelry with little jewelry jokes. Like lockers with an image of your secret lover? Do you own a jewel with jewelry jokes? Let me know those examples. I like to know them, just out of curiosity.
Jewelry with ‘jewelry jokes’ is an unexpected subject of art. When I saw the ring with the poison for the first time I just imagined that you used the poison for someone and you forgot to clean that ring properly. You have a chance that you get poisoned or become ill because of the poison left-overs. Maybe a strange thought but still!
Not only to prevent being poisoned from your own ring but also to keep your jewelry clean, my e-book telling you all about the right way to store and clean your jewelry is a lifesaver. It is free of charge. Just let me know where I can send it to.
