Introduction to Armenian jewellery

Updated: May 26

Traditional Armenian jewellery has centuries-long history. Armenian women always liked wearing a lot of jewellery to match their colourful Armenian folk costumes called “Taraz”. Most of the jewellery was handmade of silver, it is passed from generation to generation.

One of the essential items for an Armenian woman in ancient times was a silver belt. It was usually decorated by turquoise, coral, amber or other semi-precious stones. Some considered a belt to be protection from sickness and other harmful things.
