History of Ancient Egyptian Jewelry

posted in: History & Culture of Jewelry | 1

Only around three to five thousand years ago, the Egyptians started making jewelry. I’ve always found Ancient Egyptian jewelry to be a particularly impressive body of work, and a personal source of inspiration for my own work. Not because I like gold (I actually hate it), but because of their elaborate approach, and their pioneering and trendsetting ways. When I think of jewelry history in general, the first thing that comes to mind is Egyptian jewels.
