    Glencairn Museum's Sacred Adornment: Jewelry as Belief in Ancient Egypt  Exhibition encourages visitors to discover why jewelry was such an important part of daily life for ancient Egyptians. The stunning necklaces, bracelets, and rings in a wide variety of materials from metals such as gold and copper to glass and semi-precious gemstones are all from the Museum’s Egyptian collection. Labels accompanying the items describe what researchers have discovered about the complex ideas that guided the artists and the hopes and beliefs of the men and women who wore this jewelry in ancient times.
