Archaeologists have discovered the 100,000-year-old World’s Oldest Form of Jewelry.

As we all know, we humans have always enjoyed our baubles as a species. Shiny gemstones, whether in the shape of bracelets, earrings, rings, or necklaces, have always piqued our interest.

We always tend to choose gold, platinum, or silver based on whatever metal best fits us, and ancient civilizations were no different.
We associate diamond rings with engagement nowadays, and in certain cases, we even use them to adorn our dogs. As part of a rising craze, people are encrusting their bodies with valuable stones of various types.

You’d think that was strange, but it gets much stranger. Consider the world’s oldest jewelry, which goes back more than 100,000 years.
They were found in the 1930s and appear to be bigger nassa, a mollusk family species of sea snail.
Experts think they are 100,000 to 135,000 years old and were mostly used as currency in ancient times.

Decorations made of animals, bones, and ivory strung on animal sinew were popular with ancient civilizations traveling to Europe and Asia, but because shells were available at the time, they rapidly became popular with them as well.
