Our proclivity with jewellery dates back more than 7 000 years to mankind’s earliest known civilisations in Egypt and Mesopotamia.
Today, adorning our bodies with trinkets made from gold and coloured stones that have been crafted by specialist jewellery designers has also become increasingly common among men. This trend is indicative of history repeating itself as modern society carbon-copies those civilisations dating back to 2300BC.
In early Egyptian and Mesopotamian times, both sexes wore a variety of jewellery including necklaces, rings, bracelets, armbands, and earrings, much like today’s modern-day trends. And, like the Egyptians and Mesopotamians, we too love jewellery designed and crafted with gold and exotic gemstones.
If your penchant is for Egyptian jewellery, the adornment can include anklets, beaded necklaces, bracelets, heart scarabs, lucky charms and rings. These pieces are usually manufactured using precious metals such as gold and colourful stones such as carnelian, garnets, rock crystals and lapis lazuli. Precious stones such as emeralds and pearls were also extremely popular among the ancient Egyptians. If you wish to opt for an over-the-top piece of jewellery, why not ask your specialist designer to create a wide-collar necklace? Or what about choosing a pendant displaying a protective amulet? Both of these pieces of jewellery were extremely popular among both Egyptian sexes.
Ultimately, there is nothing quite to compare with a bespoke piece of fine jewellery. There is nothing to beat a piece that has been crafted by a specialist designer. After all, they have spent years of study and practical experience to obtain certification and diplomas in jewellery manufacturing and design.
In the end, nothing gives a jewellery designer more pleasure than to work together with a client to create a timeless piece of adornment. Designers appreciate the fact that they get to share some of the most precious moments in their clients’ lives – be it the creation of a wedding ring or an over the top piece of jewellery that will forever hallmark individual tastes.
So why not go ahead and schedule a meeting with a specialist jewellery designer? They will listen to your wishes and transform your fantasy into reality. Their priority is to ensure that their clients’ expectations and wishes are realised. After all, this commission for a unique and personalised piece of jewellery may be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for you. A specialist jewellery designer will help make your dreams come true.
