Description

Description

Broad collars are a type of jewelry most frequently depicted worn by royalty and the elite in ancient Egypt. One such broad collar in the Museums collection (New Kingdom, Dynasty 18, ca. 13531336 B.C.), made of colorful faience beads, is actually a durable version of the elaborate perishable floral collars worn by ancient Egyptian banquet guests: the beads in the Museums example imitate a row of cornflowers (center), three rows of dates (middle), and a row of lotus petals (outside). These rows are joined by strands of small ring beads, while the rows end in rectangular terminals adorned with blue lotus blossoms, buds, and petals interspersed with poppy petals and persea fruit. Our spectacular necklace is adapted from this splendid Egyptian collar.

24K gold overlay, hand enameled, with resin and glass. Made in the USA. Lobster claw closure. Inner circumference adjusts from 13 1/4''L to 15 1/4''L with extender chain.
