Jewelry in Ancient Egypt


Egyptians used jewelry to brighten up their plain outfits. Gold jewelry was available for the rich. For those with less wealth, copper and jewelry called faience (earthenware decorated with colored glazes that could imitate gemstones) was cheap to buy. Thick necklaces were commonly worn as were bracelets and earrings.
