Handmade from linked fresh water pearls and a sterling silver plated Egyptian cartouche pendant. This unisex style is perfect on its own or layered with one of our charm necklaces.
A cartouche is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic name plate, shaped like an oval with a horizontal bar at the base. Sometimes, the pharaohs would wear an amulet-style cartouche, to help ward them from evil spirits and attract good luck.
The cartouche is a hieroglyphic symbol, with the oval signifying a rope, and the horizontal line symbolising the rope being tied together at the bottom to form an enclosed loop. It was believed by the Egyptians that the rope circle represented everything enclosed by the sun, symbolising the king's power over the universe.
Equipped with a chic, modern look, our polished stainless-steel jewelry is a blessing to those with skin sensitivities. It is both hypoallergenic and tarnish free.
