How important was ancient jewelry?
Ancient Roman and Grecian women were great lovers of jewelry and adorned themselves with a profusion of trinkets. These included a variety of jewelry including earrings, bracelets, amulets, necklaces, pendants, bracelets, cameos, rings and various types of head jewelry including tiaras, coronets and diadems.
The ancient Egyptians highly valued personal adornment, and jewelry was worn by both men and women of all social classes. Statues of kings and gods were adorned with lavish jewels, and the deceased were sent off into the afterlife ornamented in the jewelry of the living. Earrings, bracelets, armbands, collar pieces, rings and anklets were all common types of adornments worn in ancient Egypt.

At times, jewelry was merely vainglorious ornamentation. More often than not, however, baubles and trinkets were worn to either symbolize the wearer's prestige and eminence, or to act as religious protection against evil spirits, nefarious deities and the fickleness of luck.
