A little history about jewelry... fun facts

May 11, 2015

 

Jewelry has been worn since the beginning of human time. There have been recent findings in Kenya that ancient peoples (over 40 thousand years ago) were making beads from ostrich eggshells. In Russia, archeologists found bracelets that were carved from the tusks of mammoths. Early human in Europe made necklaces with bone and teeth as pendants. The amount of history that can be researched on the makings and wearing of jewelry is immense.

It’s no wonder we still love to wear jewelry. It’s in our nature and always has been. Today, we wear jewelry for many concrete reasons as well. For some, it’s a way for us to display art on our body. For others, it’s a function, like a tie-clip or a gem-decorated hairclip. Regardless of our reasoning, one thing we can be sure of is that jewelry is beautiful and helps to make us feel confident and even more beautiful. 

When we receive a gift of jewelry, it is a tremendous statement of care. It means the person who is giving, truly wants us to feel special. Diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds—these precious stones add joy to our world, especially when we can wear them on our ears, fingers, or around our necks or wrist. Gold, platinum, silver—whichever elements beautiful stones are set within—its’ all an expression of positivity and light.
