Jewelry

Jewelry dates back to ancient times. The first jewelry was made of bones and animal teeth and dates back to the
Stone Age. Jewelry of gold, copper and silver dates back to the ancient civilizations of the Aztecs, Egyptians and Romans.

Gemstones such as turquoise, amethyst, malachite and lapis lazuli would later adorn the metal jewelry. Many ancient
wall paintings depict the Egyptians wearing two bracelets on each arm, one at the wrist and another above the elbow.
Many of these paintings also show that ankle bracelets were worn by the rulers and the wealthy. In the renaissance
period, garments were adorned with gemstones. During the Georgian era and also the Victorian era, cameos and lockets
became popular and platinum made its appearance around 1900, although it was known to be used about 3000 years
ago but was very rare.

In the twenties, from, came Art Deco. This unusual jewelry was made using abstract geometric designs similar to those
of the ancient Aztecs and Egyptians, and was combined with modern art. Presently we are in the era of Designer Jewelry.
This new century will prove most interesting as jewelry is still evolving with different techniques being used and combined,
resulting in some of the world's most beautiful jewelry ever.
