The most popular hollow jewellery pieces are hoop earrings, rope chains and bracelets, ball and post studs, large linked chains/bracelets, and intricately woven chains/bracelets. Unfortunately, it can be hard to find really good quality hollow jewellery. The best attribute of hollow jewellery is that it gives great value for money.  If you are shopping for a giant, chunky gold bracelet, for example, chances are you’re probably not looking to spend £10k on a solid piece - that thing would not only be seriously expensive but it’d be heavy! So, as an alternative, a nice hollow-form bracelet might be just what you’re looking for - and ring up at £2800 instead.

When shopping for hollow jewellery, there are, as always, some cons to keep in mind, too. First and most importantly, thin-walled hollow jewellery dents if not treated with care.  Hollow pieces also just don’t last as long as a solid version of the same item. Some hollow jewellery is thick enough to be repaired without risk or damage, but some simply cannot. So take good care of it, and be aware it is not advisable to wear hollow pieces daily.

Gold played a role in western culture, as a cause for desire and of corruption, as told in children's fables such as Rumpelstiltskin—where Rumpelstiltskin turns hay into gold for the peasant's daughter in return for her child when she becomes a princess—and the stealing of the hen that lays golden eggs in Jack and the Beanstalk. 75% of the presently accounted for gold has been extracted since 1910. It has been estimated that the currently known amount of gold internationally would form a single cube 20 m (66 ft) on a side (equivalent to 8,000 m3). Golden treasures have been rumoured to be found at various locations, following tragedies such as the Jewish temple treasures in the Vatican, following the temple's destruction in 70 AD, a gold stash on the Titanic, the Nazi gold train – following World War II. The Sikh Golden temple, the Harmandir Sahib, is a building covered with gold. Some European king and queen's crowns were made of gold, and gold was used for the bridal crown since antiquity. A Greek burial crown made of gold was found in a grave circa 370 BC.
