The word jewellery is derived from the word jewel, which was anglicized from the Old French “jouel” circa the 13th century. Further tracing leads back to the Latin word “jocale“, meaning plaything. Jewellery is one of the oldest forms of body adornment; recently-found 100,000-year-old beads made from Nassarius shells are thought to be the oldest known jewellery. Jewellery is sometimes regarded as a way of showing wealth and might also possess some minimal functionality, such as holding a garment together or keeping hair in place. It has from very early times been regarded as a form of personal adornment.
