Jewelry making

The art of making jewelry appeared at the beginning of the Paleolithic Stone Age, Man transformed simple materials of animal, vegetable or mineral origin into ornamental jewels or so to protect himself from the forces of nature because jewelery was not only aesthetic but had dimensions associated with mythical beliefs.
The first Moroccan jewels and ornaments were discovered in several sites dating from the Paleolithic era in the cities of Rabat, Oujda, Benslimane and Nador.
In Morocco, jewelery is classified as urban and rural jewelery, men's jewelery and women's jewelery and each has its own characteristics that come from its local and regional environment.
