Ancient Egyptians wore jewelry to enhance the beauty of the women and increase the stature of the men. The wealthier the person the more elaborate the jewelry worn.
They thought that rings and amulets could keep away evil sprits and prevent injury. Both men and women wore pierced earrings, armlets, bracelets, and anklets. Wealthy people wore jewelled or beaded collars, necklaces, and pendants of precious stone and metals. P.S. did you notice that black stuff Egyptian portraits have on their eyes? Well, they are called kohl and it also help Egyptians help fight eye infections and reduced the glare of the brilliant sun of Egypt.
