Bling!

While the specific term bling was first popularized in the hip hop community, it has spread beyond hip-hop culture  and into mass culture. It was added to the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary in 2002 and to the Merriam Webster  dictionary in 2006. Companies such as Sprint and Cadillac have used the word bling in their advertisements.
