Description

Our bold and gleaming necklace pays homage to an impressive Egyptian girdle in The Met collection, from the tomb of Princess Sithathoryunet (Middle Kingdom, Dynasty 12, ca. 1887–1813 B.C.). The original is part of a group of five pieces of ancient jewelry made from gold and amethyst to create a set with powerful magical properties.

All of these jewelry elements focus on feline imagery, which can be related to protection and guardianship. In the religion of the ancient Egyptians, lions, leopards, or other small wildcats were often shown as female and believed to represent the "eye of Re."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this necklace a few days ago because it was on clearance and also because I was looking for a match for my gold plated amethyst earrings, which I bought in Met several years ago. When I got this necklace I was stunned by its beauty! It looks more beautiful in real life than on the picture, the craftsmanship is outstanding, the design is so original and elegant, the colors are vibrant, and the length is perfect! It looks very rich but not owerpowering. I love everything about it! I am so happy I took a chance on it, it is better than I expected and truly worth the money!
