A gorgeous Egyptian-inspired replica, this necklace features vermeil petal-shaped beads topped with turquoise, carnelian and lapis beads on a scalloped chain. In ancient Egypt, jewelry was often worn as protective talismans. Gold was believed to reflect the life-giving rays of the sun. The color and brilliance of gem stones traditionally determined their value and religious significance. Because these are natural semi-precious stones, no two stones are alike and may vary slightly in color. Necklace measures 20 inches long.
