Western European facial hair fashions varied throughout the medieval period. Beards and mustaches were very common, especially in Britain, Ireland, and Scandinavia. Some men wore mustaches without beards. Irish men sometimes wore their beards forked into two points. At the Byzantine court and among wealthy Byzantine households, jewelry and adornment were ubiquitous and complicated. Both sexes wore jewelry made of gold, often set with precious stones. Sapphires and emeralds were the most commonly used gemstones, though rubies and diamonds were also popular.

In Thailand bead necklaces and beaded ornaments were in fashion from the ancient period up to the 11th century. The Thais used beads made from cornelian, agate, garnet, and amethyst as well as colored glass and glazed ceramic. Gold and silver ornaments appeared in Southeast Asia during the period of Indian-influenced civilization from the first to the fifth centuries.
