Bold and full of meaning, this gorgeous focal pendant depicts many of the most well known ancient Egyptian symbols. Here are some fun facts!
Surrounding the head of the pharoah are the scarab beetles, which the ancient Egyptians believed to be the symbol of rebirth, regeneration, creation, transformation and was commonly worn from infancy until death in order to provide a blessing of lifelong protection.
The snakes, known as the asp in ancient times, represent eternity and the triangle symbolizes the pyramids.
The spread falcon wings depict the god Horus who served many functions in the Egyptian pantheon, most notably being the god of the Sky, god of War and god of Protection.
Lastly, the presence of the emerald jewel represents how the Egyptian pharaohs were among the first people to prize emeralds. Between 3000 and 1500 B.C., Egyptian royalty extracted all the emeralds from a site near the Red Sea known as "Cleopatra's Mines".
Egyptian Revival jewellery first became popular in the Victorian era when many of the Egyptian tombs were being excavated. Gaining popularity again in the 1920's, then in the 1960's due to the hype of the movie release "Cleopatra" featuring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, and once again in the 1970's. A must have piece which will come back in style time and time again.
