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..

Stone Properties
Lapis Lazuli Lapis lazuli is a relatively rare semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense blue color. Lapis lazuli was being mined in the Badakhshan province of Afghanistan as early as the 3rd millennium B.C.E. Trade in the stone is ancient enough for lapis jewelry to have been found at Predynastic Egyptian and ancient Sumerian sites, and as lapis beads at neolithic burials in Mehrgarh, the Caucasus, and even as far from Afghanistan as Mauritania. It is deep blue with veining, usually in white, with flecks of gold and/or silver.
Materials
Gold Vermeil Vermeil is a combination of sterling silver, gold, and other precious metals, commonly used as a component in jewelry. A typical example is sterling silver coated with 14 carat (58%) gold. To be considered vermeil, the gold must be at least 10 carat (42%) and be at least 2.5 micrometres thick. Vermeil can be produced by either fire-gilding or electrolysis. Today, vermeil is safely produced by electrolysis. It is very durable with normal wear but as with all plating methods, it can be worn away in reaction with some people or chemicals
