Cartoon Image of flashing jewellery. All over the world, and throughout history, people have worn jewellery. It has taken many different forms, and whilst some of these are familiar to us, such as rings, brooches and necklaces, different societies have produced an incredibly diverse range of different types of jewellery. These objects have an equally diverse range of meanings, from purely decorative to a powerful symbol of wealth, status or religion. It can be worn for luck, or as a protection against ill fortune. A piece of jewellery offers a fascinating insight into the people and the society that produced it.
