Revolutionary changes in the Arab world are not limited only to the political system but also they concluded accessories. The Arab revolutions had an influence on accessories either on its materials or its decorations.
The materials of Revolutions accessories:
Recently it is common to use silver and copper in designing accessories especially accessories related to the revolutions while gold, diamond and gemstones have disappeared. The use of copper and silver is because of the high endurance of these metals and their low prices. We have also found the use of fabrics made of the country flags as the pendants of the revolutions. It is also used in bracelets and leather products.
Arab Revolutions Accessories Designs:
We have found many logos used in different revolutions engraved in pendants, rings and even earrings. For example, instead of writing a girl’s name on a pendant you can find her nationality with the design of the crescent and the cross combining the two forms together.
Accessories with Dates:
The latest trend of the revolution accessories is to write the date of each revolution on a necklace, for instance the date of January, 25 in Egypt. You can find couples racing to write dates on their rings matching the revolution’s date.
The Color of Revolutions Accessories:
Now the common colors are the colors of the countries that had revolutions. You will see the beads of the accessories have the same color of the flag . Shiny and bright colors have disappeared.
