A little history… Gold jewellery was worn by both men and women in the Sumer civilisation around 3000 BC and gold chains were first produced in the city of Ur in 2500 BC. In ancient Rome, the carnelian gemstone was a symbol of courage. The Greeks and Babylonians believed wearing carnelian would bring them good fortune.
Ancient Carnelian: Carnelian gemstone beads have been used for centuries to create beautiful jewellery and charms. A bold and beautiful stone that truly stands out, the intense, fiery gemstone can evoke the warmth and illumination of the sun or the blazing embers of a burning fire.
