Bulgarian traditional jewellery - elegance and glamour



The exhibition of traditional adornment from all ethnic Bulgarian territory, presents the jewelry craftsmanship during the Bulgarian Renaissance in the 18th to the early 20th century. Unique samples of different types of elegant female decoration for head, hands, breastplates and belts astonish with their beauty and detail.[shrink]

Jewelry is invariably present in the most important stages of life: some are gifts at birth, others at marriages; women use different adornment in weekdays and celebrations. The chosen bride is gifted with a jewels, which is a social indicator of the family she comes from and of the family she goes to.

Bulgarian Renaissance adornments have a double function - they not only reveal the richness and beauty of the Bulgarian women but also protect them. For this purpose serve apotropaic adornments, which through miraculous power keep their owners from evil eye, drive away the evil thoughts and ensure health and wellbeing.
