Gold Jewelry

This exhibit in the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum showed how and where some of the items of gold jewelry were worn, such as the necklace that I showed yesterday.  For people who must have been challenged just to meet the basic necessities of life, they evidently prized jewelry and adornment.

This week we have photos of the Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I do not think much has changed in modern day society; we all seem to love adornment and to preen. Those necklaces are gorgeous; appear a bit heavy to wear but any sacrifice for beauty!!!

Something tells me that all that jewelry was not very comfortable to wear.

You have shown some fine gold jewelry in the past few days.
