Los Angeles: 'Happy' singer Pharrell Williams wears jewellery with healing properties.
The American singer decided to reinvent both his music and his image by shunning expensive, oversized bling for precious stones possessing medicinal values, which he feels can improve his quality of life, reports contactmusic.com.
"For ages, I got it wrong. I was competing with others because I wanted to draw attention to myself. But in the same way as I realised I wanted to put peaceful things in my music, I decided I should only be wearing jewellery with medicinal and holistic properties," he said.
"I wear yellow diamonds or emeralds because those stones have healing qualities, as well as soft water pearls. I don't love jewels for what they represent. I love them for what they express, because they're who I am inside," he added.
