Cleopatra Collar by Museum Reproductions
Stunning, decorative collar, well known from an Egyptian culture. Ode to Cleopatra - Egyptian Queen. She came to represent, as did no other woman of antiquity, the prototype of the romantic femme fatale.
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. Jewellery was often worn as protective talismans. Gold was believed to reflect the life-giving rays of the sun. The colour and brilliance of gem stones traditionally determined their value and religious significance.
Materials: Gold plated pewter with carnelian, aventurine, sodalite stones; toggle and bar closure
Comes in a elegant gift box.
