A pair of earrings handmade from gold-plated silver with three different coloured beads inspired by the Abrahamic religions.
The three different coloured semi-precious beads which are naturally found in the region represent the three religions of Egypt – Islam, Judaism and Christianity. The gold bead features a date palm tree which grows in the area to symbolize the land.
This pair of earrings form part of the Earth range created exclusively for the British Museum to accompany the Egypt: faith after the pharaohs exhibition.
