Jewelry was a collective term for loose-fitting adornments typically made of precious metals and gems but sometimes also shells.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Jewelry included rings,[1] amulets,[1] necklaces,[1] brooches,[1] and anklets,[3] as well as other types.[3]

Uses[edit | edit source]

Such trinkets could be enchanted to produce magical items, though this was often expensive and the creator had to be skilled in the Art.[4]

Chult,[5] the Dalelands, and[6] Daggerdale[7] in particular were well known importers of jewelry, as was Shadowdale.[8] Calimshan[9], Thay[10] and those of the Great Rift were known exporters of all kinds of jewelry.[11]

Gnomes had a great interest in jewels and jewelry.[1] Jewelry could often be found on nobles and inheritors,[12] such as those of the Fire Knives.[13]
