Ukrainian women traditionally wore jewelry with their festive clothing. They sometimes used gold and silver jewels but the most popular and widespread were coral necklaces, beaded necklaces, and glass necklaces (in the Western Ukraine, glass beads often were colorful, painted with various patterns). A lot of samples of such vintage jewelry pieces are still in use or exhibited in museums. Here are a few examples below.
Men didn’t use jewels. But if they could afford, men used ornate weapons: sabers, knives, axes, etc. Their handles and sheaths often were adorned with gold and silver carving, precious stones, ivory, and other expansive embellishments.
