Pectoral, the Accessory of the Past

Wednesday, 17 March 2010

pectoralThe fashion changes as the woman changes her mood. It really does and it is easily seen in collections of accessories and jewelry different from season to season. This is the challenge to bring the new breathe to the old outdated attires. We are aware that perfectly suited jewelry may be the zest of the image, while the clothes, shoes, hairdo and makeup look as the background only. And pectoral is such the jewelry.

The new things is merely the old good things

Only rare people know about pectoral. This jewelry is practiced in the public from the recent times only though it was demanded from the ancient times. The most famous pectoral is the Scythian one. That was like an accessory and the protection for the warriors. Pectoral was mad from the metal sheets to cover the upper torso, shoulders and the neck to provide the additional protection.

The pectoral found the popularity in Ancient Egypt and then in Europe.

The Iron Age is known for this jewelry when the pectoral served both men-warriors and women becoming the jewelry only. It always looked differently. Thus, in the East the pectoral appeared as the wide half-moon made from gold or silver. That jewelry was abundantly decorated with precious stones. The pectoral was popular which is shown on much papyrus seen at our ages.

The pectoral was known as the bowl in Europe with metal chains worn in the way as modern women wear bras. Such pectorals were made from steel, gold and silver and were decorated with coining or stones.

The pectoral looked short to cover the throat, shoulders and the upper torso only though there were the models that went to the waist line. Sometimes the jewelry appeared as the decoration made from the cast gold and sometimes it looked as the delicate bond of thin and delicate chains. With the lapse of time the pectoral became more and more delicate and refined and did not look like armours at all.

This decoration served as the prototype for the torture instrument practiced when witches were questioned and tortured afterwards.

Such decoration would made hot and attached to the suspect to force to confess something.

In view of that people forgot about the beauty of pectoral and the fashion made it popular again.

Modern pectoral

In 2009 the designers launched collections where they paid their attention to the necklaces, beads and chains. The pectoral was seen in collections by Tiffany & Co, though the modern model of the pectoral looks far away from what it looked some centuries ago. The collections by Bezel Link, Stacking and Twist by Tiffany & Co offer the pectoral for the modern woman as the bulky crescent-shaped necklace. The traditional silver and white gold, elegant gems and stresses make the jewelry luxury and worth wearing for any solemn event.

The Italian designer G.Raspini launched the collection of silver jewelry CHARMS&Co, where the pectorals were presented in the modern style. From the point of view of the designer, the pectoral looks like a solid jewelry as if weaved from many silver chains and coins, decorated with intricate figures.

The hand-made pectorals are marketed currently and such decorations created by the fanciful designers and artists appear as the alternative to the expensive jewelry recognized by the legendary designers. Pectorals are frequently seen in the markets and stores of Egypt, Turkey and India. Today pectorals come made from enamel, glass, plastic, wood, metal and leather.  In view those ethnic patterns are fashionable, the exotic types of pectorals are also trendy.

Pectoral is not the simple jewelry. It is created to wear for solemn events and functions, with evening dresses. Today the designers use different material for pectorals, apart from gems and precious stones which make them popular to wear for the every day events. The pectoral looks beneficial with the plain dress and it is acknowledged as one of the unique uniform accessories and the perfect gift from designers this year.
