What Types of Jewelry Did Women Wear?

Egyptian women and men wore all types of jewelry, such as necklaces, bracelets, and other accessories. Necklaces came in a wide variety, and when I mean wide variety, I mean wide variety. I'm not going to give you all of them, but I'll give you a few, and they are chokers, single and multiple strand, pendants, and broad collars. Guess what, the broad collar could measure up to 10 inches! Whoa, now that's a big collar! This type of necklace was primarily made of gold, with inlays of semiprecious turquoise, lapis lazuli, garnet, carnelian, and other stones.
