Description

The Eye of Horus Bracelet sterling silver is made in our workshop in Egypt by the efforts of skilled craftsmen and designers. The Eye of Horus (Wedjat eye) Pendant is a beautiful addition to your unique collection. Next to the ankh symbol, the icon commonly called the Eye of Horus is the next most well known. It consists of a stylized eye and eyebrow. Two lines extend from the bottom of the eye, possibly to mimic the facial markings on a falcon local to Egypt, as Horus’s symbol was a falcon.

Horus is the son of Osiris and nephew to Set. After Set murdered Osiris, Horus and his mother Isis set to work putting the dismembered Osiris back together and reviving him as lord of the underworld. According to one story, Horus sacrificed one of his own eyes for Osiris. In another story, Horus loses his eye in a subsequent battle with Set. Egyptians also connected the symbol  with healing and restoration.

The symbol is also one of protection. It was commonly used in protective amulets worn by both the living and the dead.

The Eye of Horus commonly, but not always. The Eye of Horus is the most common use of the eye symbol.

Furthermore, Egyptians chose most of the materials not just because their colors created a particular effect, but because colors for the Egyptians had an underlying symbolism or amulet significance.

Dark blue was the color of the all-embracing, protective night sky, of lapis lazuli- and of the deep-blue glazed composition and glass made to imitate it. Curiously enough the Late Dynastic Period used, khesbed, the principal word for lapis lazuli, like the word for turquoise, as a synonym for ‘delight’.

Red was the colour of blood with all its connotations of energy, dynamism, power, even life itself. But it was also the colour of the evil-tempered desert-god Set. He was patron of disorder, storms and aridity, and murderer of his brother Osiris. This curious dichotomy is reflected in the fact that khenmet, the word for red jasper, was derived from the verb ‘to delight’.

At the same time Egyptians considered cornelain, with its orange-red hue, an ill-omened stone. Egyptian lapidary employed Sard the third red stone. From the New Kingdom on wards all three could be imitated by red glass and glazed composition.

Like all our other exquisite jewelry, this bracelet is handcrafted, highly detailed, top quality & made to last a lifetime. Furthermore it bears the 925 silver stamp for authenticity purposes.
