The Egyptian Museum, Cairo, Egypt - Jewelry


Egyptian jewelry is among the most fascinating of the ancient treasures. Tasteful jewelry appears early in Egypt, it assumes a high level of professionalism from the first dynasty onward. We see a deep concern on their behalf to create harmonious forms and color combinations. To a greater extent , both gold and semi- precious stones were employed . Silver ,on the other hand was less widely used. The quality of execution reflects an undefied level of proficiency. Owing to superb Egyptian craftsmanship , the results are readily apparent.
