Abstract

During the early periods of The Byzantine Empire, jewellery developed as a continuation of the Roman jewellery both in terms of form and method. The distictive Byzantian forms, patterns and methods developed after the 6th century when Constantinople became the centre of jewellery. Furthermore, in order to improve the court jtewellery, creaion of a Byzantian style was enabled by sending for craftsmen from Alexandria and Antakya. Colourization of metal, the unique Byzantian jewellery method began to develop in flashy jewelleries that were created with precious and semi-precious stones together with precious metals, especially gold. Just like the Anatolian people before them, the Byzantians wore their jewellery both for adornment and showing off their wealth and for protecting themselves from evil and showing their piety. As unique outputs that blended the traditions of Roman and Hellenistic periods and Christianity, the Byzantian jewelleries affected both West and the jewelleries of the Seljuks and Ottomans, who lived in Anatolia after them. As unique outputs that blended the traditions of Roman and Hellenistic periods and Christianity, the Byzantian jewelleries affected both West and the Seljuks and the Ottomans, who lived in Anatolia after them. In this study, it is aimed to determine the lands-societies that affected and were affected by the Byzantians in terms of “the history of jewellery” by studying the design, material and aesthetic values of Byzantian jewelleries.
