Enamelling is one of the oldest known forms of surface decoration - a way to add colour to jewellery or decorative items without relying on gemstones. The earliest known enamels date back to the 13th Century BC.
It’s thought that the zodiac dates further than 1000 BC, with various ancient civilisations mapping, recording, and naming constellations. Astronomers from Ancient Babylon are credited with crafting the first twelve section division of the sun’s ecliptic path. Zodiac jewellery, often including corresponding birthstones, dates back to biblical times, although this did not find it’s modern definition until the early 1900’s.
