The generic term jewellery includes all objects that are created for the purpose of aesthetic embellishment. Ornamentation in itself goes back to the roots of human culture and already 100,000 years ago shells, bones and other materials were used as ornaments. These materials were also painted, decorated and made into necklaces or bracelets. Later, rare and precious materials such as ivory, pearls or amber were added. The purpose of the jewellery at that time was to emphasise the social status of a person or to distinguish certain groups from each other. Often they also served as talismans, which were supposed to promise the owner health, fertility or hunting luck. With the processing of metals such as iron, copper, bronze, gold and silver, the art of smithing began. This art started around 5,000 BC and played an important role in ancient Egypt and among the Germanic and Celtic peoples. The Egyptians distinguished themselves with their forging skills and the diversity of their jewellery. This resulted in remarkable pieces of jewellery made of gold with decorative elements of ceramics, glass, enamel and gemstones. The jewellery produced included dress clasps, brooches, amulets, rings and bracelets or necklaces. Early jewellery often had a religious meaning or symbolised ritual customs. For example, jewellery played a key role in the ancient Egyptian belief in the dead and was an important burial object for the mummified pharaohs. But the Celts and Germanic tribes also decorated their jewellery with mythological symbols of their gods. The ancient Egyptians also wore jewellery for decorative purposes or as an amulet for protection against the evil. In the Middle Ages, jewellery was only worn by the governing classes and people mainly wore simply crafted pieces of jewellery. At that time, the symbolic power of jewellery was more important. In addition, jewellery was also considered a popular means of exchange. This changed with the beginning of the Renaissance. Jewellery became an art form and was consequently richly decorated with gold and pearls. Influenced by the French Sun King Louis XIV, jewellery became even more magnificent and opulent in the Baroque era. In addition, a passion for diamonds arose and the first cutting experiments gave the stone its fascinating lustre. In the Victorian era, nature came into focus and motifs with leaves and blossoms were preferred. Medallions filled with personal objects or with engravings also became popular during this period. With the production of costume jewellery in the 19th century, jewellery finally became affordable for broad sections of the population and was no longer reserved for the wealthy. The history of jewellery goes back a long way and still today it exerts a fascination on us. It is worn for fashion purposes or on certain ceremonial occasions. In our versatile assortment you will find jewellery in different variations: Creations made of gold jewellery, jewellery made of silver or stainless steel or even jewellery in a material mix with leather. Ornamented with pearls or set with gemstones such as zirconia, diamonds or others. Jewellery can be divided into different categories. A distinction is made between necklaces, rings, bracelets, watches, cufflinks, etc. Another important way to divide jewellery into clear levels is the material. Gold jewellery, silver jewellery or stainless steel jewellery can thus be separated in a first distinction. These most important dividing lines within jewellery can also be applied one after the other to finally find the requested product.
