Description

This adjustable bolo necklace celebrates an ancient Egyptian beaded necklace (ca. 1981–1975 B.C.) in The Met collection. Like the original, our bolo features multicolored beads; our contemporary piece is strung with carnelian, turquoise, and lapis, which we have adorned with an ankh pendant made of 18K gold plate.

The ankh sign is an Egyptian hieroglyph that signifies "life." The Met's ancient piece was found in the burial of Wah, an Egyptian estate manager who lived during Dynasty 12. The asymmetrical bead necklace may have been worn during Wah's lifetime, but it was certainly restrung for his funeral, as the linen cord shows no sign of wear.
