Tropes about all kinds of jewelry, whether they be gemstones, rings, necklaces, etc. But all will sparkle.
Compare Conspicuous Consumption, which many of these tropes would count as.
Some of these tropes even count as Garnishing the Story, just because they are better if jewels are involved than something else.
Not to be confused with the video game Bejeweled.
