A pair of oval-shaped stud earrings with a design inspired by ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.

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

These earrings are handmade from hallmarked fine silver.

Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs were developed c.3000 BC, and were used for formal inscriptions. The alphabet is comprised of a series of symbols and characters, which includes birds, reeds and ankhs. The hieroglyphs were sometimes called ‘The Words of the Gods’ and were mainly used by priests. Although the ability to read ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs was lost for centuries, they were finally deciphered by Jean-François Champollion in the 19th century, advancing the study of Egyptology immeasurably.

A subtle way to celebrate thousands of years of Egyptian history.

 

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