Jewelry avaIn Ancient Greece, people just loved jewels. They used a lot of adornments, skillfully and artfully made. Many pieces were made from gold and elaborately embellished with gems like pearls, emeralds, amethysts, and semi-precious stones. A lot of these jewelry items are meticulously preserved and displayed in museums. Today, we’d like to show you some of them – necklaces, finger rings, bracelets, earrings, hairpins, fibulas, etc.

 

Both men and women wore gold jewelry but, of course, the latter used more of these precious items. Also, female jewels were larger, brighter, more ornate. A lot of pieces were passed down the generations and sometimes served as offerings to gods. So, they were not just pretty babbles but valuable and meaningful things.

The most popular jewelry in Ancient Greece were necklaces, earrings, brooches, bracelets (often pairs of matching sets), pins, arm and thigh bands, hair ornaments, and many other items.

Here are some photos of these beautiful jewelry pieces that survived to modern day and are preserved in museums. Just imagine – they are 2 to 3 thousand years old!
