Returns and FAQs:

A pair of drop earrings with a geometric design inspired by the wings of the ancient Egyptian goddess Maat.

The earrings are part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Hieroglyphs: unlocking ancient Egypt.

These earrings are made in the UK from laser-cut acrylic mirror and painted FSC certified wood, finished with 16 carat gold-plated nickel-free brass stud posts.

The goddess Maat was viewed as the personification of the ancient Egyptian principles of truth, balance and justice. She was sometimes depicted with an ostrich feather head decoration, other times represented entirely by the feather, which was used in the Weighing of the Heart ceremony during mummification, in which the heart of the deceased was weighed by the jackal-headed god Anubis against the Feather of Maat.

A beautiful and colourful jewellery gift.

 

Please note, for hygiene reasons pierced earrings cannot be refunded or exchanged.
