Description

Several large, beautifully crafted broad collars in the Museums collection were certainly gifts from the great king Thutmose III to his wives. One of these gold collars (Dynasty 18, ca. 15041450 B.C.) is made of palmettes and nefer hieroglyphs. The nefer signifies the word meaning good or beautiful, so perhaps this necklace was meant to bring good wishes to the wearer. This splendid broad collar is the source for the design of our dramatic top.

Cotton/Spandex. Classic fit. Three- quarter sleeves. Imported. Machine washable.

Art History

Reliefs and paintings on tomb walls, and painted depictions of jewelry on mummy portraits and mummy cases, provide evidence of how jewelry was made and worn in ancient Egypt. Pendants, necklaces, earrings, diadems, armlets, bracelets, anklets, and hair ornaments not only beautified the wearer, but often served as amulets, protecting the owner from harm. Finely worked pieces of jewelry were commonly included in the tombs of the royal family and high-ranking officials.
