Egyptian Cat Necklace

Now cat lovers can go ancient and accessorize with this colorful and unique piece! Cats were considered sacred in ancient Egypt. They represented Bastet, the cat-headed goddess of Bubastis, a city in Lower Egypt. Bastet came to be associated with the preserving power of the sun and the protection of women. This piece is a reproduction of a faience amulet circa 800 B.C.  Featuring genuine turquoise, carnelian and sodalite beads, this reproduction is interspaced with 22k gold-plated beads and cats and measures 16 inches long with a toggle clasp. As these are natural semi-precious stones, no two stones are alike and may vary slightly in color.

Pair this necklace with our Egyptian Cat Amulet Earrings and Egyptian Cat Amulet Bracelet!
