Pre-Owned 800 Silver Cartouche Pendant with Nefertiti Bail and Gold Egyptian Hieroglyphics
A pre-owned oval silver Egyptian hieroglyphics cartouche pendant with a Nefertiti bail and a crossbar base, the oval body of the pendant decorated with applied gold hieroglyphs. At the top of the list is the Egyptian vulture, which translates to the letter A. Next is the mouth hieroglyph, translating to the letter R. Third in line is the owl hieroglyph, which represents the letter M. The last two hieroglyphic symbols are those of the Ankh, a good luck charm representing life and live, and the lotus flower or water lily, symbolizing the process of rebirth, regeneration and reincarnation. The reverse side of the pendant contains an applied scarab beetle, a symbol of great strength.
Pendant measures 2-1/8 inch long and 5/8 inch wide at the base.
The Egyptian hallmark on this pendant is incomplete, but enough of the stamping is there to know it is 800 silver. The applied gold hieroglyphs test positive for 12k.
