Types of jewelry Egypt Women Wear

They wore necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and other accessories. Necklaces came in a wide variety, such as chokers(I hope these chokers didn't really choke them, but hey no one said being beautiful was painless) single and multiple strand, pendants, and broad collars. Guess what, these broad collars could measure up to 10 inches!! This type of necklace was primarily made of gold, with inlays of semiprecious turquoise, lapis lazuli, garnet, carnelian, and other stones.
