<p>The ankh symbol means 'living' or 'life'. The design used for the jewellery is based on the hieroglyphic inscription carved on a limestone slab in the Department of Egyptian Antiquities bearing the names and titles of Ammenemes III, 12th dynasty, about 1825 BC. It is thought that pictorially the sign originally represented the tie straps of a sandal or possibly a mirror in its case.</p>

Designed exclusively for the Museum, a silver pendant in the shape of an ancient Egyptian ankh.

The ankh hieroglyph symbol represents ‘life’ and appears frequently in ancient Egyptian art and writing. This pendant is inspired by the hieroglyphic inscription carved into a limestone slab bearing the names and titles of Ammenemes III from the 12th Dynasty, about 1825 BC. The stone can now be seen in the British Museum’s Department of Egyptian Antiquities.

A delightful gift for anyone interested in ancient Egyptian history.
