What Does the Future of Jewelry Look Like? Climate Change.

19 september 2019
(janosconsultants.blogspot.com) - Climate Change.  The subject is the undercurrent for everything we do today.  We do not know how to handle it personally, as it represents a huge looming threat to life as we know it, and that in itself leaves us feeling unmoored and anxious.  There is international agreement that the threats may be existential.  This is not a cyclic occurrence, unless we are dealing in eons.  The solutions, if attainable, may well be epic in scale. It appears that there will not be any aspect of human activity and life that will not be impacted, no matter what actions the nations of the world take. I believe that one aspect of people's psychological reaction to the potential for severe environmental degradation is to go and see as much of it as possible before it disappears or becomes unaccessible. Still, it strikes one that people will spend many thousands on travel, but not consider that kind of expenditure for jewelry.  Could that be a telling valuation of what jewelry might mean under this clouded outlook?  We could make a similar comparison with other luxuries, and weigh whether it is the climate outlook that is a cause, or a simpler change in preferences, in views on categories, brands and images.
