From Greek to Egyptian, Ancient Jewelry Transcends Time

Posted by Mark Nielsen on

Almost everyone loves wearing jewelry. The right necklace, bracelet, or ring can make a real statement about who someone is, their style, and the image they want to show to the world. Whether you're a jewelry enthusiast yourself or you're looking for a unique gift for someone else, jewelry from the Museum of Jewelry is a wonderful choice.

This store offers a unique line of jewelry that hearkens back to time periods past and reintroduces some ancient styles. The result is stunning, one-of-a-kind jewelry that buyers won't find anywhere else.

Egyptian Styles

Ancient egyptian jewelry has really become popular in recent years. This type of jewelry tends to be large, noticeable, and incredibly stylish.

You can opt for chunky silver necklaces, big statement necklaces featuring ancient designs, beautiful beadwork, carved earrings and rings, and alluring stones set in all kinds of different pieces. If you want your jewelry to be noticed or if you want to give a gift that's truly unforgettable, Egyptian styles are the best solution.

Greek Styles

Of course, not everyone likes the same things, so if you want an attractive piece in a different style, be sure to try ancient Greek jewelry. With this jewelry, you'll enjoy lots of bright colors, shiny metals, and even some sparkling stones. Though this jewelry is made to look like real ancient jewelry, it's surprisingly modern and can easily be dressed up or down depending on the wearer's preferences. Browse through such exotic items as Assyrian ram's head earrings, dryad earrings, peridot rings, and a whole lot more.

Roman Styles

Greece and Egypt aren't the only places once known for their jewelry! You can also find some beautiful ancient Roman jewelry reproductions. Roman jewelry tends to look the most modern out of these different styles, while still having a timeless quality. Enjoy items like blue topaz earrings, malachite necklaces, and even gold and diamonds when you wear Roman-inspired pieces.

Wear it Everywhere

No matter which type of ancient-inspired jewelry one buys, it's important to know how to style and wear it. Otherwise, there's a good chance the item will just sit in a jewelry box somewhere collecting dust. That would be a real shame too, given the great beauty of these different pieces. Plus, this type of jewelry has become extremely popular in recent years and is very trendy right now. Thus, there's no better time than the present to wear it and wear it right

Keep it Simple

Most ancient jewelry is quite noticeable, or at least it's meant to be. However, when a piece of jewelry is paired with a loud or overpowering outfit, it can easily get lost, visually speaking.The key to making a piece of ancient-inspired jewelry stand out, then, is to keep the rest of the outfit one wears simple. A solid colored top and some nice pants or a simple dress are great base outfits that will put your jewelry, be it earrings, a ring, a necklace, a bracelet or anything in between, on full display.

Keep Colors and Style in Mind

Egyptian, Greek, and Roman jewelry comes in a wide range of colors. Some of the most common colors include rich silvers, golds, deep blues, purples, and more.

No matter what color a piece of jewelry is, however, it's important for the rest of the outfit to complement that color. That isn't to say that the colors of one's jewelry and the colors of one's clothes have to be a perfect match. But, the colors should look good and pleasant together and should not clash.

Also, jewelry and clothing should complement each other in terms of style. A piece of jewelry that looks very formal is probably not going to look great with a more casual outfit and vice versa.

Of course, there's always some wiggle room when it comes to fashion, and people are allowed to break the "rules" and just wear what they think looks nice. But, in general, trying to make sure clothes and jewelry complement one another is a good way to create an outfit most people will find stylish and appropriate.

Don't Overdo It

When it comes to stand-out jewelry, remember that less is more. Adding too much jewelry to an outfit can make it so that no one piece really gets the attention it deserves. Plus, it can make an outfit look messy and overly busy.

Consider wearing just two pieces of jewelry with any given outfit. Or, you could try just one piece per body part, meaning only one necklace, one pair of earrings, one bracelet, and one ring. Following either of these tips is a good way to ensure an outfit doesn't look overloaded.

Of course, you can still buy all the jewelry you want! Then, you'll have something for every outfit. But, just because one owns a lot of great jewelry doesn't mean they should wear it all at once!

It's truly wonderful that ancient-style jewelry is so "in" right now. Make the most of it by finding jewelry that you love or that makes a great gift and then wearing it anywhere and everywhere!

The Museum of Jewelry specializes in creating history-inspired, wearable works of art in jewelry form. Designed by master artists from around the world using tried and tested techniques, every piece of jewelry from us is unique, beautiful, and sure to make a statement wherever the wearer goes!
