Abstract [en]

This essay will deal with ideas for jewellery in the future. One approach to this issue is, to investigate the meaning of materials which might become rare or even deplete in the future. Along with science and science fiction it will focus on established scientific postulated laws of nature, although some elements might still be pure imaginative speculation. The paper will also explore about academic discourse on value with a focus on understanding jewellery material values connected to rarity as well as value of experience and the increasing need for it in society. It will draw a futuristic picture of change, meaning and development in the field of contemporary jewellery and society.
