To say that the jewelry predates the woman would not be an exaggeration. The earliest known examples of Jewelry were created not by humans but by Neanderthal: 115,000 year old perforated beads made from seashells unearthed in the Cueva de los Aviones, a Spanish cave. In Kenya, at Enkapune Ya Muto, beads made from shells of ostrich egg were created more than 40,000 years ago. And in Russia, a marble ring and stone bracelet are attributed to a similar age.
While our collection is more reflective of fashions from bronze-age through present, the jewelry that graces women is timeless.
