Religious Jewelry

Jewelry is a derivative of he word jewel which was anglicized from the old French “jouel”. Jewelry is one of the most primitive forms of personal adornment. Jewelry is made out of almost every kind of material known to mankind and has been used to decorate nearly all parts of the body. In earlier times jewelry was created for practical purposes, such as storing wealth and pinning clothes. The use and purpose of jewelry has evolved with times.

Most cultures have had the practice of keeping large amounts of wealth stocked in the form of jewelry. Wedding dowries were given in the form of jewelries and special designs of jewelry were created to store or display money. Jewelry has also been symbolic of group membership or religion. Religious jewelry is worn as a sign of fellowship. Christians wear the crucifix as religious jewelry. For Jews it is the Star of David. Religious jewelry also encompasses rings, bangles or chains worn by married people. Amulets and devotional medals are also religious jewelry. These are worn to ward off the evil eye and provide protection. In some cultures religious jewelry takes the form of symbols, such as the ankh in Egypt. Stones, plants, animals, glyphs and even body parts (such as the Khamsa) are displayed through religious jewelry.Religious jewelry varies according to the time and place of origin. Religious jewelry can be a figure of god or a symbol of a deity. Even zodiacal signs act as religious jewelry.
