ABSTRACT
The article discusses the relevance of Muslim tombs and cemeteries to jewelry exploration. Photographs of ornaments on Egyptian and Indian Muslim funerary monuments were analyzed to evaluate their differences. The personal adornments used by the Indian Muslims represent the jewelry of the deceased while those utilized by the Egyptian Muslims only indicate the gender of the departed. It can be inferred that the decorations used in an Egyptian tomb were not particular.
