Art History

Scenes depicted in reliefs, paintings on tomb walls, and representations of jewelry from panel paintings and coffins illustrate how jewelry was made and worn in ancient Egypt. Pendants, necklaces, earrings, diadems, armlets, bracelets, anklets, and hair ornaments not only beautified the wearer but often served as amulets, protecting their owner from harm. Finely worked pieces of jewelry were placed in the tombs of the royal family and high-ranking officials.

 

Description

An ancient Egyptian necklace (ca. 1900–1800 B.C., Dynasty 12, Middle Kingdom) in the collection of the British Museum, London, is strung from carnelian beads capped with gold. Ovoid and ball beads capped either in gold or silver were a popular style for Middle Kingdom jewelry. This ancient necklace’s design is the source for our handsome earrings. Produced in cooperation with the British Museum, London. 24K gold overlay, with matte finish and carnelian beads. Made in the USA. 3/4”L. Pierced, with gold- filled ear wires.
