“The Sumerian jewelry makers were the first to use techniques like granulation and filigree, be it in simple and not very fine forms. A well-loved color combination is that of blue-yellow-red; the combination of lapis lazulli, gold and carnelian. The materials were crafted to beads and then strung in alternating ways. A few pieces displaying gold objects with precious stone inlay have been found in the graves of prominent Sumerians as well. Chains, made with the basic loop in loop method and filigree show that the Sumerian goldsmiths had a firm grip on making, and using gold wire. A typical motive is that of the spiral. Metalworking techniques weren’t very complicated but nevertheless very effective.

Jewelry worn by men often consisted of earrings, necklaces, armlets, bracelets, pectoral ornaments and headbands with a gold chain at the back which is presumed to have acted as a head-cloth fastener. Sumerian women wore a much wider variety of jewelry such as golden headdresses made of sheet gold in the form of foliage and flowers, huge crescent-shaped earrings, chokers, large necklaces, belts, dress pins and finger-rings.”

Care Tips

• Store your jewelry in an air tight space.

• Remove your jewelry when in water, keeping the piece(s) away from cleansers/detergents. 

• Avoid direct contact with perfumes, body lotions and other chemicals. 

• Clean the pieces after use by wiping with a soft dry cloth. 

• Remove your jewelry before going to bed or participating in any physical activity. 

If allergy appears, stop wearing. This is fashion jewelry, not real gold/silver. However, I am constantly improving the materials that I use and currently use mostly gold plated stainless steel metals, some of the best on the market for fashion jewelry.
