    About

    Drop earrings in the shape of petals, with blue lapis beads.

    In ancient Egypt, jewellery was often worn as protection from a variety of physically or spiritually hostile forces. Lapis was valued as highly as gold and was considered a sacred stone, most often worn by priests and royalty.
