N.b.: We guarantee the authenticity of our items. Each one of them has been evaluated by our experts and checked by our competent jeweler.

DESCRIPTION:
Hieroglyphs are pictures or symbols representing words and used in writing systems different from that of our western phonetic system. Such systems were used in Antiquity, particularly in Ancient Egypt where the Rosetta stone was discovered.

A similarly coded language is the basis for this beautiful carnelian pendant. Carnelian is a mineral commonly used as a semi-precious gemstone. It is often transformed into beautiful jewelry. In ancient times, it used to be the stone of courage and, today, it implies self-esteem and increases physical energy.

This large carnelian is of premium quality. A member of the chalcedony family, its subdued luster is paired with a fire-orange and red palette which produces a sensation of warmth and well-being. It is a large and thick stone, in excellent condition with the lettering and symbols intact and well defined. It is held in place with four pairs (8 in total) of strong solid gold prongs. This is an eye-catching and meaningful pendant.

We have added a new and stamped (750/000) box link chain, also in 18K solid yellow gold. It features an expandable chain and two spring coil closures. This beautiful box link chain just seem to be a perfect match for the pendant, but you can buy each item separately. Just ask us, please.

Both chain and pendant are in excellent estate condition. Any white or cloudy spots on the images are glare and/or photographic obstructions.
