“For many women of Egypt, their jewelry is their bank—they wear their wealth in their gold. But jewelry in Egypt is also more than mere assets, and its design and manufacture reveal a great array of styles and a high degree of skill and artistry.
From the farms and villages of the Nile Valley and Delta, from the oases of the Western Desert and the mountains and wadis of Sinai and the Eastern Desert, from Nubia in the south, and from the crowded traditional neighborhoods of Cairo is displayed a cornucopia of gold and silver adornment— each area with its own distinctive favored style.”
Today at 6:30 pm, Diwan is going to host the book launch and signing by Azza Fahmy. What an interesting book!! I bet it has lots of beautiful jewelry designs!
