What is bling bling jewellery?
According to Collins English Dictionary, Bling-bling, commonly shortened as bling, is defined as something that is "flashy; ostentatious, glitzy."
Popular in the Hip-hop community, the term's invention is credited to rapper Dana Dane, who first referred to the term in his rap song "nightmares" in which he used the term to describe the sound effect of tinkling bells used on Cartoon shows to indicate shine on the gold coins, money, jewelry and gems.
Today, Bling jewelry encompasses anything that is flashy, and could include shiny watches, bracelets, rings, necklaces, and grillz. However, other items such as shoes, and belts can be bling, as long as it's appearance is shiny or flashy.
