Jewelry from Mexico - Gold - Sterling Silver
Mexico is popular for producing the most beautiful jewelry and of the finest quality in the world. Most of the jewelry produced in the country is handmade by skillful artisans and is considered a form of life in Mexico, as well as a work of art. Jewelry making dates back to the ancient people of Mexico, primarily the Mayans and the Aztecs. The ancient Aztecs used a variety of materials in their jewelry including silver, gold, emeralds and turquoise. Jewelry was worn primarily by the wealthy since it was considered to be a symbol of their status in society, and was often worn through body piercing by adorning both the ears and nose. It was also worn by religious leaders for the numerous rituals and religious ceremonies that they practiced, which made jewelry making a full-time task for ancient crafters. Besides being made for nobleman and religious leaders, jewelry was also crafted to adorn their temples which were embedded with jewels. The Spaniards were among the first to observe the quality and beauty of Aztec jewelry, when the leader of the Aztecs sent jewelry in order for it to be reviewed by the Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortez.
