Every Gorgeous Piece Of Jewellery Has A Story To Tell
The story of Jewellery
A piece of Jewel has its own story to tell. A story of its existence, a story of immense pain
(melting, twisting and carving), a story of turning into a beautiful piece of ornament from a
shapeless raw metal. Time does not have the record that when exactly the art jewellery
making was discovered. Was the jewellery invented as a sign of art or a mark of status or
rank of the people in a different period of time? Possibly, it must have been a pleasurable
pastime activity to the early age folks which later turned into a serious business and known
as a symbol of one's prestige and power in the society.
Art of Aesthetic Jewellery
Before the Bronze Age when the advanced jewellery came into existence, the primitives
used their basic skills of jewellery making using the available sources of beads, seashells,
bird’s feathers, animal teeth, bone, horns, sinew, and skin etc. History says, in 1600 BC,
Greeks were the first who commercially used gold jewellery. In 1500 BC the major
techniques of working on gold jewellery in Greece contained casting and twisting bars.
Many of these sophisticated techniques of Jewellery making were popular during the
Mycenaean period. Dhokra art which has been in practice in India for over 4000 years is
similar to the Greek art of Jewellery making to some extent as the process contains metal
casting in Dhokra art as well.
Possession of precious gems and metal jewellery in ancient times signified power and it has
also been a sign of economic security to most of the women in the country.
Jewellery is a form of personal adornments such as Rings, Necklaces, Neck Chains,
Earrings, Bracelets, Anklets, and head jewellery etc. One uses jewellery or Jewellery to
enhance his or her overall appearance and complement his or her looks. Jewellery has

the culture and heritage of different sections of the people across the various countries
of the world. Jewelleries considered being an imperative part of the attire and
appearance of the people. At the various period of time through the centuries, jewellery

position in the social strata of the society at the respective time period.
