Description

Our colorful hoop earrings reinterpret an extraordinary ancient Egyptian cuff (ca. 1479–1425 B.C.) in The Met collection. The original adornment is one of three pairs of hinged bracelets associated with the tomb housing three foreign wives of Thutmose III, who ruled during the New Kingdom period. Each cuff is made of burnished gold and inlaid with carnelian and glass that was once turquoise and dark blue, but has since faded. Each adornment is likewise inscribed on its inner surface with the cartouches and epithets of the king, suggesting that they were a royal gift.
