Description

These Egyptian cat earrings with amethyst and quartz beads would make the perfect gift for anyone who loves boho chic styling as well as meaningful jewelry with historic links to ancient cultures. Cat lovers would also find them special. The cat charms represent the goddess Bastet (also known as Bast) and are good luck amulets especially fitting for mothers. (For more info about Bastet, please see last section in this listing.)

At about .75 of an inch long, the cat beads have a sleek appearance, with the cat faces simply and sweetly detailed. These are nicely made silver-plated charms, and figured on both sides. Including the beaded portion of the earrings as well as the earrings wires, the length is about 2 1/8 inches. (Please see my photos for a measurement picture with a penny and a ruler.)

Also included in these long dangle earrings are the following:

• Amethyst star-cut round gemstone beads (8mm)
• Amethyst faceted rounds (4mm)
• Faceted clear quartz rounds (6mm)
• Sterling silver earrings hooks and clear ear-guards
• Sterling silver rondelle spacers (4mm, 3mm; made in Italy)
• Sterling silver petalled bead caps (made in USA)
• Silver plate eye pins (21 gauge)
• Sterling silver earrings hooks and clear ear-guards

Meaningful, with Egyptian cat good-luck symbols, these earrings were handmade by me with great care, thought, and best wishes for their destined wearer. They are a stylishly unique pair that I think would be fun to wear, especially for cat lovers and lovers of ancient spirituality or history. The earrings will arrive on a PrettyGonzo card and in a nice organza bag, all wrapped, and ready for gifting to someone special—perhaps yourself!

A Brief Word About Bastet, the Ancient Egyptian Cat Goddess

In ancient Egypt, cats were considered sacred, their status as dieties well established by the third century BC. They were likely accorded this honor because of their essential role in controlling rats and other vermin, and because they were capable of overpowering snakes, even cobras. Bastet was a prominent cat goddess during the first millennium BC. She had evolved from an earlier Lower-Kingdom incarnation, Bast, a lioness warrior diety.

Bastet could be depicted fully as a cat or, especially later in ancient Egyptian history, represented as a woman with a cat's head. Over time, she became associated with motherhood, kittens sometimes added to her imagery. As a maternal figure, Bastet became a good luck figure in women's amulet jewelry. During the Greek Ptolemaic Dynasty in Egypt (305 BC to 30 BC), Bastet became syncretized with the Greek moon goddess, Artemis, further solidifying her role as a special figure for women.

About Amethyst Gemstone

A member of the quartz family, amethyst is traditionally considered a protective, talismanic stone. The name amethyst comes from the Greek word "amethusos," which means "not drunk." The gemstone is associated with the crown chakra, and is the birthstone for February. Amethysts are actually crystals and often have inclusions, clouding, and other interesting elements to them, as well as various shadings of their distinctive purple color.

Yes, I am always happy to accept a custom order! Whether or not I require a deposit, full amount, or neither will depend on the nature of the order. I have done a number of such orders elsewhere with no deposit or purchase required, as I knew I could simply add those items to my inventory if the customer decided not to purchase. (Customers always did purchase them, though.) I always show photos of custom orders to the customer.
If you are buying a gift for someone and have used that person's address for shipping, please let me know at the time of ordering - I will be happy to include a complimentary notecard in which is written whatever message you would like to send.

Of course, I am always happy to send to that person's address. Just please make sure it is CURRENT. Thank you!
