Royal Egyptian Clip On Earrings by Museum Reproductions
This jewelry combines the most popular and powerful colors of Dynastic Egypt. Blue represented heaven and red, symbolizing blood, represented life. Gold, with its enduring sheen reflected the powerful rays of the sun god.
The original jewelry, found in the tomb of Tutankhamen, was made with faience (fired crushed quartz in various combinations) which was used regularly as a substitute for semiprecious stones. The jewelry of ancient Egypt often had talismanic properties and was believed to protect from harm.
These stunning clip on (non piercing) earrings are gold plated with Lapis Lazuli stones in the center and red and blue enameling..
