Lapis Lazuli is known as 'the stone of Protection'.
Since Ancient Egyptian times the Ankh has been the symbol of eternal life both in this world and the otherworld. It is connected with tradition in modern times in that it was adopted as the cross of the Coptic Christians in Egypt.
In many representations the gods are holding an Ankh in their hand or extending it to people. This involves the breath of life made visible and, to some extent, the divine spark through which life can first come into being. It further embodies the life-giving characteristic of the elements air and water. The origin of its shape has not yet been clarified. It may involve a magical knot, or, another interpretation is that it is a combination of the T-shaped Osiris cross and the oval of Isis as the key that locks away the secrets of life.
The Lotus Flower represents a connection between the divine light and the chaotic darkness. For this reason it is a sign of hope and rebirth.
All my silver Egyptian jewellery is truly authentic and this is a new design from the fabrique that I work with in Cairo.
