Three timeless types of jewelry

The Greek word jewel ”kosmima” comes from the verb ”kosmo” which means adorn. The adornment of women and men with jewelry is not only found in modern times. People started making jewelry from prehistoric times and they were made from raw materials such as stones, shells, animal teeth, bones and nuts. The purpose of their creation was to attract the opposite sex and for beautification. Over time, they were also used as amulets.

Pearl jewelry

Pearls have long been associated with beauty, elegance and purity. In ancient times they were used in medicine believing that they have healing properties and in some cultures that they can lead them to immortality.

Over the years they began to be used in the jewelry manufacture and the result was impressive. Wonderful earrings that give an aristocratic style, necklaces that embrace and highlight the neck of every woman, bracelets that emphasize the wrist, as well as rings that give elegance to the fingers.

Today there is a great variety in designs from pearl jewelry. They can be worn from morning to night and by all ages. They are considered one of the favorite jewelry of women.

Jewelry with precious and semi-precious stones

The art of carving precious and semi-precious stones has its roots in antiquity. Over the years they began to be tied to metals and used as jewelry or amulets. Each stone was associated with certain properties which were beneficial for the person who wore them and protected him from evil. This idea still exists.

Jewelry with precious and semi-precious stones was (and is to this day) particularly impressive and gave beauty, glamor and prestige. In Classical Times, social classification could be defined by a single piece of jewelry. Jewelry made of precious metals and precious / semi-precious stones was worn exclusively by the nobles.

After the Renaissance and with the development of goldsmithing this changed and jewelry became available in the middle class. More and more people had access to them and started wearing them giving glow to their looks.

Depending on the style that each woman and man wants to adopt and depending on the occasion, they can choose between the most simple to the most impressive jewelry with precious and semi-precious stones.
