Based on a bracelet found in the tomb of King Tut.
Ancient Egypt, one of the richest and most advanced of the early civilizations, appeared on the stage of history around 3100 B.C. (Dynasty I). Hieroglyphic scripts and tomb decorations document the Egyptians' belief in the after-life, their mythology and deities. Jewelry was often worn as protective talismans. Gold was believed to reflect the life-giving rays of the sun. The color and brilliance of gem stones traditionally determined their value and religious significance.
Brass 3/8 inches high with gold finish, a photographic process is used to transfer the full color image to the metal and then a layer of clear resin is added for protection. Do not wear swimming or during strenous actvities that could expose it to possible scratching or chemicals. About 8 1/2 inches in diameter, fits wrists up to 8 inches.

|Brass||Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc; the proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of tones from dull, muted gold to bright and shiny gold. Used for everything from jewelry to home decor. It doesn't tarnish and some formulations are completely corrosion resistant. Thin layers of brass can be electroplated over other metals such as pewter.|
|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|
