SCENTED JEWELLERY

Since the earliest times scents have been worn by people. The Egyptians made scented wax-cones that were placed on the head. During the day the wax melted from the heat of sun and body, to imbue the wearer with its scent. During the plague, the “bird-masks” were invented to be worn by doctors as protection against airborne bacteria. In the beak was placed  a material infused in a blend of essential oils that would filter, and kill, bacteria.

These masks later became the “prototype” for the well-known Venetian carnival-mask. (right)Venetian carnival bird-mask

Through the centuries jewelery has been designed to hold scents in different ways, usually in compartments such as lockers, spheres and other figures.

This beautiful bracelet is made to carry your favorite scent, be it an essential oil, a blend thereof or a perfume.  The scent is infused in material that is put in the locker. Designer Cathy Gins creates these fabulous jewels. You can read her profile and check out her jewelery on this site.
