Jewelry played a significant role in ancient Egypt, in life and death. Finely crafted pendants, necklaces, earrings, armlets and bracelets were often placed in the tombs of royal family and high- ranking officials.
Our top is based on a broad collar from the tomb of Lady Senebtisi (Middle Kingdom, ca. 18591813 B.C.) discovered by the Museums excavators during their 1906 1935 Egyptian Expedition. The broad collar necklace is particularly evocative of ancient Egyptian royalty and decadence, as it is crafted of gold and turquoise, faience, other stone beads, and fringed with gold pendants. Cotton/Spandex, printed on front and back. Slim fit. Imported. Machine washable.
