History of the Silver Collar Necklace
The Egyptians were the purveyors of the collar necklace made famous by Nefertiti, King Ramses, and King Tut some 50 centuries ago. Gold was the metal of choice, however, the metal was secondary to the accoutrements enriching the specific piece of jewelry. The choice of stone, glass, earthly by-products and other materials were highly symbolic and deliberately chosen to convey feelings, ideas, wishes, desires etc. Color was extremely critical in Egyptian jewelry, connoting, power, lust, desire, and even death. With a keen belief in the afterlife, Egyptians crafted jewelry for many occasions, including a celebration of death and burial.
