Greek Jewelry – Why We Love It

Greek Jewelry

Greek Jewelry of gold and gems were favorites in ancient Greece. The Greeks learned how to make jewelry with gems such as emeralds, pearls, and amethysts. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, arm bands, and thigh bands were some of the most popular types of accessories worn. Some women even had jewels sewn into the fabric of their clothing.
