In ancient Egypt both men and women wore jewellery, not only as a symbol of wealth and status, but also for protection from evil.
Gold was the metal of choice for the Ancient Egyptians, and it was used extensively throughout the several thousand years of history when Egypt was ruled by Pharaohs.
Outstanding service to the state was rewarded by the gift of jewellery from the King who would lean out of a window and drop bracelets or gold collars to the nobles waiting below.
This Twisted Bracelet is made of metal and is gold plated. The information card is full colour on the front and has historical information on the reverse.
