Jewelry from Mexico usually uses a variation of different types of materials, some jewelry is made of shakira which are tiny colored glass beads, these beads are also used to make little money pouches and more stuff. They are also made of gold and silver. Some bracelets are made of string, which are different colors like pink, black, green, red etc. These bracelets include beads, charms and especially evil eyes.

What Does Jewelry Mean to Hispanic People and Why Is Mexico a Good Place to Buy Jewelry?

Gold jewelry used to be very important and valued to the Mayan and Aztec civilization. They used gold to symbolize social status. Most jewelry is a tradition for Hispanic people like for example  When babies are born, most people give them a red or pink bracelet. This bracelet is to protect them from the evil eye and evil intentions.

Indeed Mexico is best known for the best places to buy jewelry in the whole world. Buying diamond jewelry in Mexico is cheaper, the average price of a diamond in Mexico is about 30% lower than the global average, same with gold jewelry. Jewelry such as braided bracelets are  handmade with exclusive materials and different types of designs. Personally, I think Mexico is a really great place to buy jewelry, they have a lot of designs and colors and represent our culture and traditions.
