History of the Renaissance Renaissance jewelry encompasses the many wearable decorative pieces crafted during the Renaissance period, which began in the 14th century and ended in the 17th century. During the Renaissance, jewelry was considered a form of art, and its owners highly valued it for reasons beyond its capacity to display one’s wealth. Jewelry during this period was not restricted only to the highest classes of society, although royals would have access to their own court jeweler who could create amazing custom jewelry pieces to fit their demands. Additionally, men, as well as women, wore jewelry often. Still, the types of jewelry worn differed based on gender. For example, both men and women wore engagement rings, but while women wore theirs on their fingers, men would wear the ring on a chain as a pendant. During the Renaissance, the types of jewelry worn included the basic necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings we often wear today, but other forms were also prevalent, including head ornaments and pins to decorate hats. Some women wore jewels on the bodices of their dresses as well.
