Description

Our tiered drop earrings take their bold design from an ancient Egyptian broad collar in The Met collection. The earrings are crafted in 18K gold plate with carnelian drops and colored glass beads; the ear wires are 18K gold-plated sterling silver.

By the New Kingdom (ca. 1550–1070 B.C.), broad collar necklaces were the most frequently worn pieces of jewelry among the royalty and elite in ancient Egypt. The original broad collar belonged to one of the three foreign wives of Thutmose III; the king's name inscribed on the back indicates it was a gift to his wife.

Due to its reflective nature, gold-plated jewelry can appear lighter or darker in varying light conditions.
