In this day and age, fashion is gradually evolving to be more exotic. Body parts that are often left alone in the earlier times are now being decorated as well. Gone are those days that women are only allowed to wear dresses, long gowns and long skirts, covering their legs and thighs. These days, women are more unconventional and this independence is expressed through fashion most of the time. Men on the other hand have changed as well. Some men these days already wear pieces of clothing that are limited to just women beforeexamples are skin tight jeans and cardigans.
Another innovation when it comes to fashion and accessories are tattoos and piercings that both gender seems to be fond of. One of the piercings that are getting more and more popular these days are nose studs. Theseare worn usually by teenagers to middle aged people. You can see random people walking on the street with nose studs and that the same time; turn your tv on and see celebrities like Pink, Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera sporting nose studs as well.
Years earlier, nose piercings are just associated with hippie and punk culture, however, time have turned this fashion statement available for everyone. These nose studs range from small diamonds and crystals to balls or spikes. Some studs are even made of gold, sterling silver, platinum, crystals or other gems. Furthermore, there is a wide collection of designs that vary from small stones to stars and hearts and moons.
For those who want sophisticated and elegant look but would still love to sport a facial piercing, there are studs made of Swarovski crystals that could be purchased on local jewelry stores and online shops. If ladies are going to attend formal parties and they want to stand out and look formal and elegant, they no longer have to hide their nose piercing. On the contrary, ladies can wear a Swarowski crystal stud and it will definitely add brilliance to a beautiful face. Crystal also tends to catch light and reflect it, thus creating a sparkling effect.
The fashion of nose piercings started so long ago. In the Indian culture, nose piercings on women are symbols of beauty and status. In the Egyptian culture, on the other hand, members of the royalty wear nose studs made of gold. Warriors also have nose piercings so they will look fiercer on the battle field. Eventually on the 1970s, the hippie culture brought the fashion of nose piercings to the United States and the rest of the world has emulated it.
In addition, there are always alternative options. Those who do not want to experience pain but would love to have a nose piercing can try the magnetic nose studs. Magnetic studs look so similar to the real one and the only difference is that there will be no real piercing. This is very ideal for those who have a low tolerance to pain and for teenagers who have strict parents that would definitely say no to nose piercings.
