Price: £ 19.50
A very dainty pair of .925 Silver Ankh Drop Earrings with a stud fastening (Hallmarked)
Weight 3.6gms
Size: Actual Ankh - 0.5"(l) (with Lotus Flower Finding 1.0") x 0.25"(w) at the widest point.
A lovely pair of simple Ankh earrings attached to a Lotus Flower finding with a stud fastening at the back. (I have asked the Fabrique to make this type of fastening rather than the lever hook as they are so much easier to put on and comfortable to wear).
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 a 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 characteristics of the elements air and water. Its origin is really not known but it may involve a magical knot. Amother interpretation sees it as 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 is a living symbol of beauty and grace. In the Egyptian Book of the Dead the young god Ra is the 'youth who came forth from the Lotus'. This plant represents a connection between the divine light and the chaotic darkness. For this reason it is a sign of hope and rebirth which goes very aptly with the meaning of the Ankh.
All my silver Egyptian jewellery is truly authentic. It is made in the Fabrique in Cairo and I choose each piece individually and with great care. It is all hallmarked.
Any questions and/or queries do please contact me and I will gladly reply. Thank you for looking.
