Peruvian civilizations date back to the 13th century Inca Empire. Even then the importance of jewelry, such as necklaces, was prominent throughout society. The Inca people were known for having vast amounts of silver and gold. These metals were crafted into precious necklaces, bracelets, and ear ornaments. The desire for Peruvian jewels made the Inca Empire a target for conquest. When Francisco Pizarro invaded the Inca Empire it was said that he asked for a room filled entirely with silver and gold. Since the disappearance of the Inca Empire, the practice of making necklaces, bracelets, and other pieces of jewelry has been passed down through the generations.
