Displaying influences of Near Eastern traditions, this eloquently simple design is adapted from an Egyptian gold torque, or neck ring, and hoop earrings (ca. 1648–1540 B.C.), probably from a Hyksos tomb in Avaris (now Tell el-Daba). This region served as a major trading center for the eastern Mediterranean. Our lightweight Egyptian Tubular Bracelet is stunning worn alone or in multiples.

Art HistoryThe Hyksos are credited with introducing many technological advances to Egyptian culture, including use of the horse, chariot, curved sword, and vertical loom. These innovations helped to elevate Egyptian technology to the levels that had already been reached in western Asia. The advances in methods of warfare, in particular, would help the Egyptians to eventually expel the Hyksos and reunite Egypt under a single king.
