One of the main purposes of jewellery in ancient Egypt was as amulets and charms designed to protect the wearer from mysterious and hostile forces.
The finest jewellery was worn only by the king and the royal family, the court and temple priests. The court and temples were therefore the main employers of goldsmiths and most of the gold that was produced was held in the king’s treasury.
The Egyptian Mummy Pendant is made from lead-free pewter and is supplied on a waxed cord. The fold-over information card is full colour and has historical information on the reverse.
