First, if we look at the early history, the Africans generated the first sign of jewellery. In Kenya, beads made up of perforated ostrich egg shells have been dated to more than 40,000 years ago. Around 7,000 years ago the first sign of copper jewellery was seen.
The most general metal used in Egypt was gold for making jewellery, they prefer gold to be first priority over other metals. The first air of jewellery in Ancient Egypt was around 3,500-5,500 years ago. Also, the Egyptians at that time used colored glass instead of precious gems.

Now coming forward towards Europe and the Middle East. If we talk about Mesopotamia, by around 4,000 years ago, jewellery-making had become a really significant craft in cities of Sumer and Akkad. Jewellery was generally made from the thin metal leaf and was set with a large number of dark and bright colored stones in Mesopotamia. Then talking in respect to Greeks, they started using gems and gold in jewellery in 1600 BC. By 300 BC, the Greeks were mastered in making colored jewellery and using emeralds, pearls, and amethysts. Greeks generally don’t adorn jewellery and so it was mostly used for public appearances or on some special events. However jewellery work was abundantly diverse in earlier times when the Romans conquered most of Europe, jewellery was changed as smaller fractions developed the designs of Rome.
