Add to wish list


This stunning necklace of blue and red stones with gold-tone finish spacer beads is similar to that found in a bracelet of the high priest Pi-nudjem II from Thebes, virtual ruler of Upper Egypt during the latter part of the 21st Dynasty (ca. 960 B.C.). (The original bracelet combined lapis and carnelian beads.) Necklace measures 16 inches. Materials: Eighty-eight blue turquoise, twenty-two red carnelian, brass beads with gold-tone finish. Lobster claw closure. Blue beads measure 2mm, red beads measure 5mm. This combination of beads is similar to that found in a bracelet of the High Priest Pi-nudjem II from Thebes, virtual ruler of Upper Egypt during the latter part of the 21st Dynasty. In ancient Egypt, golden jewelry was regarded as a divine metal related to the shining sun god. Red stone was believed to be the stone of courage and physical power. The original bracelet forms the basis for our elegant beaded necklace.
