This page is about the slang term bling
flashy jewellery worn to create the impression of wealth
- Check out all the bling around that guy's neck. It must weigh a ton!
- Most people have gold bling or silver bling, but they don't usually mix it up.
"bling-bling" means the same thing
Origin: Originally used in U.S. hip-hop and rap culture, and possibly derived from the sound of heavy necklaces hitting one another.
This is typically used in American English but may be used in other varieties of English too.
