Precious and pricey, people have always loved bling. Did you know necklaces are one of the earliest types of jewelry worn by humans during important events like ceremonies from the old days…funerals, weddings, etc. 24-carat gold is 99.9% pure. It’s too soft for jewelry wear but 24-carat gold is still the norm across Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. So let’s draw a beautifully ornated, exotic red and gold Indian style necklace today!
This tutorial and our many others are suitable for ages 3 to 8 (preschool and above.)

🎨 Parents: The only tools you need to use these how-to-draw tutorials are: an eraser, a pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.

Jewelry Facts for Kids
- Karat count is the measure of how pure gold an item or piece of jewelry is. It’s counted in 24ths, meaning 100 percent pure gold is a 24k piece of jewelry.
- Organic jewelry means pearls, coral, and amber…things created by living organisms rather than through time and geological processes (for example diamonds.)
- Amber is an organic gem and can be as old as 120 million years.
- Jade is sometimes called ‘the stone of heaven’. It was said jade was created by thunder and captured the force of the heavens – a good marketing slogan for the olden days!
- By the mid-1940s, weddings with groom and bride ring racked up to 85% of all American weddings. Nowadays it’s almost always at every wedding, steeped in this tradition.
- Diamonds are not rare compared to other jewels, there are tons of tiny diamonds that are treated more or less like a grain of dirt in Africa because they’re not worth much due to their small size. A diamond only gets some value if they’re larger than a grain of dirt.
- Ever since the 1950s, scientists have been able to grow diamonds in laboratories easily thus creating diamonds that look exact the same as natural diamonds even under microscopes and a trained jeweler. The diamond difference between lab grown and nature grown becomes imperceptible to human and laboratory eyes.
- Diamonds and rubies are the most popular gems in the West whereas in China it is jade.
