The Egyptian women wore several types of jewelry. To get started they wore a lotus flower the lotus flower was an important image in Egyptians jewelry. 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. They jewelry was meant for different reasons it meant something it was not meant for fashion like we do today!
