Jewelry has been present in some form in almost all civilizations since the dawn of time. Early humanoids would decorate themselves with bones, teeth, shells and similar trinkets that they found or acquired. As civilization matured, the types of jewelry changed and evolved. Common themes have always been religious symbols, various stones and gems and of course precious metals such as gold and silver.
