PRECOLOMBINO JEWELLERY

Pre-Columbian cultures have been hugely important throughout the cultural development of Colombia. Cultures such as the Tayrona and Sinú on the Caribbean coast and the Muiscas in the heart of the country laid the foundations for many of the craft trades that we can appreciate today. Made of pewter, an alloy of various metals, before being dipped in gold, these pieces of jewellery represent the most symbolic figures of these three pre-Columbian cultures such as pectorals, nose rings and the nature that surrounded them.
