Egyptian & Persian Artifacts
1000 - 2000 B.C.

 


 

The ancient Egyptians emphasized personal ornamentation. Jewelry was designed, crafted and worn with great thought and care.  In their typical holistic fashion, fine jewelry was valued not only for beauty but also for the magical and spiritual protection it provided for its wearer.  Jewelry was crafted from precious metals and gemstones.

All Egyptian artifacts we sell are genuine and meet our fastidious criteria for authenticity.  They have been purchased as museum surplus or are pieces from private collections.

Every Egyptian artifact sold comes with a serialized Certificate of Authenticity from our archive, guaranteed for life to be genuine.

Egyptian blue faience appears in these dramatic ancient beads.  Faience was an inexpensive ceramic paste made from crushed quartz and is thought to be a forerunner of glass. The process was known from before 3000 BC and the recipe was a closely guarded secret.  Soft earth tones and sky colors were frequently used in beadwork.  The Egyptian hieroglyph for bead indicated "luck."

This necklace has hundreds of beads of several different sizes, types and shapes and one faience deity amulet.  The beads were not originally strung. All beads in this lot are guaranteed to be 2500 to 4000 years old.
