Why did Acient Egyptianswear Make- Up and Jewerly

The Egyptians wore make-up and jewelry to honor the gods. They believed that their jewelry would protect them from evil spirits. And Also from harm. They also wore it for good luck charms like  I told you before. So nothing would happen to them and there children so the woman always wore there jewerly are they always sat around and made jewerly for familys and themselfs so nothing bad would happen too them.


  It is interesting that when the Greeks conquered Egypt in 332 B.C.E., Egyptian women were allowed more rights and privileges than Greek women, who were forced to live under the less equal Greek system.
Egyptian women's rights extended to all legally defined areas of Egyptian civilization. Women could manage, own, and sell private property, which included slaves, land, portable goods, servants, livestock, and money. Women could resolve legal settlements. Women could conclude any kind of legal settlement. Women could appear as a contracting partner in a marriage contract or a divorce contract; they could execute testaments; they could free slaves; women could make adoptions. Women were entitled to sue at law. This amount of freedom was at variance with that of the Greek women who required a designated male, called a kourios, to represent or stand for her in all legal contracts and proceedings. This male was her husband, father or brother. See woman had roles to in life they just didnt have to make jewerly are provide for there husbands

Rich or Poor!

If you were an  Egytian you had to wear jewerly even if you was poor. Just that poor egyptian wore beaded jewerly they couldnt afford all the gold. Many woman wore neckalaces, beads, braclets, and earring. The jewerly was a symbol of good luck thats why many people in Egyt wear jewerly. But My thought about the jewerly was it was really pretty and every one should wear pretty bright creative jewerly like that.

While women could become Pharaoh only in very special circumstances, they were otherwise regarded as totally equal to men as far as the law was concerned. They could own property, borrow money, sign contracts, initiate divorce, appear in court as a witness,. Of course, they were also equally subject to whatever responsibilities normally accompanied those rights.
Love and emotional support were considered to be important parts of marriage. Egyptians loved children as people and not just as potential workers and care-takers.

Pharaohs were cooled in the hot desert sun by servants who waved fans the collar of Neferuptah a twelfth Dynasty Princess no matter how hot it was. Also the jewelry was worn as a charm in the belief that it would keep the wearer safe for instance small children wore charms in their hair while swimming in the Nile River to prevent death by drowning.
