Description

This elegant necklace recalls a rare ancient Egyptian example in The Met collection. The original piece (Dynasty 12, ca. 1950–1885 B.C.) was made during the Middle Kingdom, a time when Egyptian jewelry reached great heights of sophistication. Such adornments not only beautified the wearer but also served as amulets, protecting their owners from harm.

The ancient necklace was found in the tomb of Hepy during the Museum's 1933–34 excavations at Lisht. Like our adaptation it showcases amethyst, which enjoyed its greatest popularity during the Middle Kingdom.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from small size short length The length of this necklace is too short, especially considering its price I ended up re-stringing it so it was longer. However, that meant that it was not a true 2-stranded necklace. The beads are small and perfect for a petite lady. Otherwise it is not worth the trouble of restringing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Lovely! The turquoise and amethyst beads in this lovely necklace are exquisite. I often pair it with a gold chain and love the effect. I wear it often!
