Egyptian jewellery is not just something worn by an ancient people – Egyptian jewellery which recreates a historical style is popular with many East Sussex customers who appreciate the classic style from this period. Jewellery in the Egyptian style is recognisable by its bold style and bright colours.
Egyptian jewellery was worn in ancient times by both men and women. As in most societies, it was particularly a symbol of wealth, power and influence, which meant that it was predominantly worn by the wealthier classes. However, forms of jewellery were also worn by people of all classes. Gold and silver were prized as wealthy materials for making the best jewellery, much as these materials are considered a good choice for a lot of modern jewellery. Other materials such as leather, cloth and bronze were commonly used in jewellery, creating a myriad of different styles and appearances.
Egyptian jewellery included the same wide variety that is seen in modern fashions. Egyptians used earrings, bracelets, pins, belt buckles and necklaces, to mention a few examples. A particularly popular choice was the amulet. Amulets were worn for beauty and fashion, but also for spiritual protection. As such, amulets were a valuable form of Egyptian jewellery that were greatly prized.
Egyptian jewellery, like the modern jewellery worn by people in East Sussex, was often decorated with valuable materials. A common favourite was lapis lazuli, as well as other precious stones like turquoise and amethyst. These stones were usually inlaid into the metal or strung as a necklace or bracelet. A ceramic material called faience and coloured glass were also commonly used in Egyptian jewellery.
Many of the designs of Egyptian jewellery reflected either religion or nature, and often a combination of the two. For example, religious symbols representing gods and goddesses were commonly shown on jewellery, as well as birds, animals and insects.
