Jewellery

Celtic jewellery is characterized by great diversity because they very quickly received and applied various influences of other peoples and thus enriched their material culture.

Fibulae were a type of brooch or pin used to connect and tie two pieces of fabric. They were also perceived as jewellery and were worn by members of both sexes. They were made of bronze and precious metals in different shapes and sizes.

Bracelets (armlets) can be divided into several groups on the basis of shape and technical features: spiral, armlets with decorated ends, with spirally twisted ends, egg-shaped, in the form of a caterpillar, made by filigree technique, glassy armlets...

Rings were made in several types: spiral, hoop-shaped bronze rings in the shape of a wedding ring, with a semi-circular or elliptical cross-section and iron rings.

Belts and buckles were an indispensable part of the equipment of warriors. They were made of leather, with the addition of iron or bronze hoops that could be full or hollow.

Beads varied in material and shape: beads of Hallstatt shapes, beads of glassy mass of various shapes, beads of elongated, biconical shape and beads made of gold.

Pendants appeared in different shapes: anthropomorphic, zoomorphic, articulated forms, composite materials, mostly made of silver.

Hoop earrings were mostly made of silver. Тhey were of local origin and represent the youngest variant of jewellery.

Torque was a type of necklace in the form of a large rigid ring worn around the neck. They were made of metal as a whole or of chains twisted together.

Animal teeth were worn as pendants. Bear tooth amulets were objects with a rich symbolic meaning.
