The article is devoted to theoretical issues in jewellery design and describes experiences in elaborating some essential themes and relationships that are important for development of the ontology of a piece of jewellery. This concerns, first of all, such contexts in which jewellery exists as language and space. The author considers relationships between the morphology and symbolism of jewellery and the morphological and semantic structures of the verbal language of architecture and outlines a typology of forms of jewellery space.

Key words: : jewellery design, a piece of jewellery, space, ontology, design, architecture, treasure
