Dazzling Heritage of Ancient Egypt
Egypt has rich tradition of wearing jewellery. From pendants and necklaces to bracelets, earrings and rings having hieroglyphs and meaningful Egyptian symbols on them, all of the types were favored by the ancient fashionistas. Jewelry was worn both by men and women, by the rich and poor. Ancient Egyptian kings and people of high rank wore jewelry made of precious and semi-precious stones, glass, gold cartouches, while the poor made the amulets themselves from stones, clay and even teeth of the animals.
On making a new product, an ancient Egyptian craftsman believed that he endued the piece with the magic powers which would transfer to the wearer. Jewelry was important for afterlife experience. Among the most popular symbols for jewellery were:
Egyptian gods and goddesses Isis, Amun, Anubis
and the popular queens Nefertiti and Cleopatra
Egyptian jewelry still tops the lists of the most wanted themed products. Cartouche pendants, 18k and 14k gold and silver necklaces and rings with ankh and inscriptions in hieroglyphs can be found in our online shop.
