The Met collection houses pieces of precious jewelry that date to the Middle Kingdom (ca. 20401640 B.C.), when the height of refined jewelry-making was achieved in achieved Egypt. Our handsome Middle Kingdom Knot Earrings are adapted from a silver knot bracelet from the 12th Dynasty (19811802 B.C.).

Most common in the Middle Kingdom, bracelets of this type were based on the ancient belief that protective spells could be bound to the wearer through a knot. The knot motif was used in jewelry for centuries.
