Millennials are socio-politico-environmentally conscious. With the controversial history of gem extraction, it is normal to question whether jewelry is at all relevant in the lives of millennial women. However, there continues to be a significant section of jewelry loyalists in our generation, just as there were in previous generations. The difference really lies in the preference of designs by jewelry wearers today. Art jewelry and frugal inexpensive accessories register more of a demand than expensive jewelry now.
