A good looking silver necklace set with nine round cabochons cut from amazonite. It has an Arts and Crafts hook and figure of eight closure. It has been used since ancient times. The Egyptians carved Chapter Seven, The Judgment of Osiris, of the Book of the Dead onto slabs of amazonite rock and adorned themselves in jewellery made from amazonite stones. They believed amazonite stones were a symbol of fertility and good luck. They carved amazonite stones into amulets that were thought to strengthen one’s reproductive abilities, one of the amazonite benefits at the root of amazonite meaning. A scarab ring and a number of other objects carved from green amazonite were found with the treasures of Tutankhamen. This necklace was made in the 1920s when there was an Egyptian revival in jewellery designs due to the discovery of the Tutankhamen treasures.
