What Jewelry Stores Might Have Been Like Through History

The allure of jewelry stores is undeniable. Case after case of sparking diamonds and glowing metals draws in the eye and appeals to the desire to have and hold beautiful things. The assortment of rings, necklaces and earrings is visually stunning and can have a profound effect on the passing shopper. So, what is it that draws us to fine, handcrafted and wearable pieces of art? Why have humans always wanted to adorn their bodies with valuable and precious treasures? Let's take a look at what a few of history's most storied jewelry stores may have been like to get an idea of how this art form has withstood the centuries.

Ancient Egypt

While the modern human may not understand the hieroglyphic writing on the walls, the polished gold and silver definitely speak our language. In Ancient Egypt, people wore ornate necklaces and bracelets for many of the same reasons people today do. Jewelry acted as a status symbol for Egyptians of both sexes. Eyes, scarabs, and birds were all powerful symbols that were used in jewelry for both spiritual and aesthetic purposes. The influence of the Egyptians' broad necklaces and colorful gemstones has had an impact on the designs of many prominent modern designers. The most wealthy and powerful Egyptians even buried themselves with their most precious objects, believing that they would be able to utilize them in the afterlife.

Ancient Rome

"Ars Longa, Vita Brevis" translates roughly from Latin to English as "Art is Long, Life is Short". The Romans took this aphorism to heart, as evidenced by their often opulent lifestyle and jewelry. Ancient Romans were obsessed with power and wealth, and this was reflected in their love for fine metals and gemstones. One of the most recognizable, and still popular, Roman artifacts is the "cameo". A cameo is a relief image, most commonly of a person or people, carved onto colored glass and then worn on a necklace or brooch. This was one of many treasures created and worn by Emperors and powerful citizens alike.

European Renaissance

With the arrival of the Renaissance in Europe came a newfound love of precious stones that were brought back by explorers of the world. An influx of new materials, cultures, and knowledge had a profound effect on the way that Europeans thought about and wore their treasures. Perhaps the greatest and most lasting effects of this era were on account of Napoleon Bonaparte himself. Napoleon chose the diamond as his gem of choice and popularized the stone because of its beauty and value.

Now, if you were to travel back in time and visit a few jewelry stores in one of the great cities of yore, you would have a good idea of what to expect. No matter what the era or area, truly what matters most is the individual's personal style and preference. You may be drawn to Napoleon's diamonds and the ornateness of Egypt's gold necklaces and combine them to create a look of your own. If one thing has remained throughout the years it is the ability of jewelry to express the personality and individuality of each person.
