/ What Poland thinks about China
Poland in her history she has never experienced the sufferings of being separated,
No,Poland was carved up by Prussia,Tsar Russia and Austria for 3 times:
(1)in 1772,basing on the treatypact signed by above three countries in Petersburg,Poland lost 35% territory and 33% population.
(2)in 1793,because of the second treaty,poland became a small country with 200,000 sq.km and 4000,000 population.
(3)in 1795,the third treaty made Poland destroyed,and since this time,Poland disappeared from European map for long about 123 years.
Until October of 1918,poland got independent again.
Also during world war 2,Poland was occupied by Geman Nazi till 1944,when new Poland was founded.
From Polish history,we can see polish people are brave,tough nationality,it isn't easy for them to get today's peace and prosperity.
I noticed elderly women wear gold earings of the same type.
i don't think it has special meaning.in China,when a girl will be married,her mother or her husband's mother will give she some jewelry as present,hoping these jewelry could bring good luck to bride,the jewelry maybe bought newly,or handed down from their ancestors.
because of the age,the design isn't popular or stop in certain period.
So i think those old women you saw in China,because they have similar age,then their jewelry are the same style.
In China,people like to buy gold jewelry for children and old people,for children,generally longevity lock (one necklace made by gold or silver),it is the elderships wish their kid can grow up restfully.for old women,their children like buy earbob,bracelet and ring for them,this is one of the ways to respect mother,because in China,women give birth and bring up the children,and do housework for whole life,when the children grow up,they become older and older,all the young people hope their father and mother can live longer and keep healthy.
Of course,maybe in special places of China,there is certain custom to adorn same jewelry,but i think it is interrelated with good luck and best wishes of good health and a long life.i think so!
