Description

Editor’s Notes: A magical necklace with meaning, for chic layering or wearing solo.

Size and Fit:  Necklace measures 20cm long. Djed Pillar Amulet measures 2.5cm long.

A little history… Associated with the Egyptian god of fertility Osiris (thought to represent his spine) and creator god Ptah, the Djed Pillar is an Ancient Egyptian symbol for stability – not only a firm footing, but immutability and permanence.

Egyptian Faience: In Ancient Egypt objects created with Faience were considered magical… the blue/turquoise colour glaze linked to the undying shimmer of the sun and powers of rebirth. Egyptian Faience is the oldest known glazed ceramic and was first developed more than 6000 years ago in Mesopotamia

Claire van Holthe for Ancienne Ambiance: A collaboration blending our brand heritage (specialist knowledge in ancient art and ancient jewellery) with resident jeweller Claire van Holthe. This enchanting collection celebrates Ancient amulets, intaglios and coins from various cultures set with modern 18k gold… thousands of years old and of museum quality, these ancient artefacts are given a new life as wearable history for today and decades to come.

Each unique piece is expertly handcrafted by jeweller Claire van Holthe at her London atelier.

Beautifully presented in hand-crafted black gift boxes with signature Ancienne Ambiance purple ribbons.
