A bronze necklace depicting an Ankh - the Egyptian symbol of life. <br> <br> The design is based on an amulet in the British Museum collection in the shape of an ankh. Amulets are charms or tokens, carried or worn for good luck. The original probably came from a temple, and may also have been used in the New Year festival.

Exclusive to the British Museum, a gold-plated necklace featuring an ancient Egyptian ankh pendant with a lapis lazuli stone.

The design of this bronze pendant has been based on an amulet housed within the British Museum’s ancient Egyptian collection. The ankh was used as a hieroglyphic symbol which meant ‘life’, and was often carried as an amulet for good luck. The original is likely to have been intended to be displayed in a temple.

Lapis lazuli was prized in ancient Egypt, and was valued as highly as gold. The deep blue stone was frequently used in jewellery and was most often worn by priests and royalty.

A beautiful gift inspired by ancient Egyptian design.
