A 14k gold ring can become a piece of art with the right inspiration, as the new Ana Luisa Voyage Rings Collection shows. Inspired by a cruise on the Nile, the rings in this exotic and breathtaking collection were designed with the lavish Egyptian jewelry in mind.
The Ancient Egyptians were an impressive civilization and so was their jewelry. They valued it a lot and both women and men used to wear it, regardless of their social class. Egyptians viewed jewelry as a symbol of status and power and they had different rules for wearing various metals and gemstones. So without further ado, we invite you to a fascinating journey through history to learn about Egyptian jewelry and what it meant to people thousands of years ago.
Egyptian jewelry history
The Egyptians were among the first people to craft and wear jewelry made of precious metals. Though silver was quite rare at the time, they had plenty of gold and copper. They used to create the jewelry in workshops and, most of the times, more than one individual worked on a single piece. Gold jewelry was worn by wealthy and influent people, while copper one, which was more affordable, was worn by the masses.
As you may know, their favorite stone was Lapis Lazuli which they used to craft the famous Egyptian Scarab. Paying attention to the scarab’s reproduction cycle, they Ancient Egyptians associated this beetle with rebirth and regeneration. Thus, it became the symbol of their sun god, Ra.
Besides Lapis Lazuli, they also used obsidian, rock crystal, pearls and emeralds in their jewelry. To the Egyptians, each gemstone had a protective and/or healing power and they wore jewelry to ward off evils spirits or bring luck to their households. Jewelry creation in Ancient Egypt was very close to a religious ritual. Jewelry makers had a very high social standing because it was believed they were chosen by the gods to craft the jewelry.
