Gold, silver, copper, gilded metals, ivory, jet together with precious and semi-precious stones were used to make Tudor jewellery. Faceted jewels using precious jewels such as diamonds and emeralds were still fairly simple flat table cuts. Tudor Jewellery for the PoorPoor Tudors had to make do with wooden beads. Cheaper alternatives to jewels were made of glass, bone and mother of pearl, metal and horn were also used to create Tudor jewellery. These cheaper stones were used singly and in strings. Gold work was also popular, enamelled with coloured glass or featuring cameos. Coloured glass beads were also fashioned into jewellery for outside use, reducing the risk of loss or theft. They were also used as rosary beads. Glass beads, called bugles were used as ornaments, especially for women's hair. Other beads were made of mother of pearl, metal, bone and even wood.
