Description

Our pendant was inspired by an ancient djed pillar amulet in The Met collection. This rare object was made in New Kingdom Egypt (ca. 1390–1352 B.C.), during the reign of Amenhotep III, the ninth pharaoh of Dynasty 18. The original amulet is crafted from faience, a ceramic material made of ground quartz.

In ancient Egypt, the djed pillar symbolized both eternity and stability and functioned as a hieroglyph. During the New Kingdom, the djed became associated with Osiris, god of the afterlife, and was believed to be his spine. The djed also served as an amulet for both the living and the dead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Authentic reproduction--Looks ancient! As a collector of Egyptian art, jewelry, etc., I had to have this piece for my collection. It looks much more expensive than it is and the detail is amazing. I love Egyptian symbols and this is a very important one to own. Very interesting cord just fits around the neck and can be worn by man or woman. The djed is large and artisan formed and it looks more like a real stone than ceramic. Both sides of the djed are etched making it reversible. This piece can be worn with any attire and really looks good around a masculine neck. I never saw this piece advertised in the Met Shop so getting it at a reduced price was a real bonus. Highly recommended for the price and style. The Met Museum has great reproductions of very high quality and standards so you won't be disappointed.
