This necklace was inspired by an ancient Egyptian jewelry from the New Kingdom era (1550-1069BC).
In ancient Egypt, jewelry was often worn as protective talismans, which were thought to bring good luck or fortune. Starting from the New Kingdom all social classes wore amulets (protective jewelry). Gold was believed to reflect the life-giving rays of the sun. Lapis gemstones were used as good luck charms for success in their exploits and calmness in danger.
This 32" (81cm) necklace has genuine Lapis and Turquoise-shade beads, accented with 24 karat gold plate beads.
