Description

The Djed silver necklace has the Djed symbol as a pendant in the middle dangling from a long necklace. Also it is inlaid with a blue semiprecious blue Agate stone from one side. The length of this lovely piece is 70 cm.

The ‘Djed Pillar’ resembled the shape of a small tree trunk, representing stability and endurance in ancient Egypt. An important ritual called ‘Raising the Djed Pillar’ took place at the ceremony of the coronation of Egyptian Pharaohs. It was also sometimes used to represent Osiris himself, often combined “with a pair of eyes between the crossbars and holding the crook and flail. Djed amulets were placed on a mummy to ensure that the deceased were reborn in the Afterlife.

Everyone has a story that can be told by a piece of jewelry. This story to describe us and our past. A story to explain our hopes and passions, a story in response to questions about who we are and why.  Every story is special and necessary and serves as a piece of something bigger.  By sharing our stories, we can vicariously experience places and people whom we have never known and may never meet with our own eyes.  Through stories we can learn about ourselves and the world.

In the jewelry making in Egypt you may find the reflection of her age-long history. Egypt, the cradle of civilization, is also the cradle of the arts and the home of craftsmanship. The race that wrought the glorious monuments of Pharaonic and Islamic architecture is no less remarkable in the skill it brings by craftsmen nowadays.

In the realm of jewelry making there is no such hiatus, no such break. Just as the Egyptian craftsmen in the fields today uses the same tools and devices as those used by his forerunners hundreds of centuries ago, even so does the craftsman of the twentieth century follow methods and traditions which his distant ancestors would recognize and understand. Skill in execution has waned and waxed during the long course of Egyptian history but methods, perfectly or imperfectly applied, have changed very little.

Like all our other exquisite jewelry, this necklace is handcrafted, and highly detailed by our talented craftsmen. It is also top quality and made to last a lifetime. Furthermore it bears the 925 silver stamp for authenticity purposes.
