Information: Some of the most common jewellery in ancient Egypt were amulets and charms designed to protect the wearer from mysterious and hostile forces.
The finest jewellery was worn only by the king and the royal family, the court and temple priests. The court and temples were therefore the main employers of goldsmiths and most of the gold that was produced was held in the king’s treasury.
