Description

Details

The Museum has in its collection many pieces of jewelry that date to the Middle Kingdom (ca. 20401640 B.C.), when the height of refined jewelry-making was achieved in Egypt. Goldwork was at a peak during this period, and jewelers often interspersed gold with black and colored stones in magnificent compositions for necklaces and bracelets. Stone beads capped with gold or silver were also a popular jewelry style. Our 12th Dynasty Capped Turquoise Earrings are based on an original necklace made of obsidian beads, gold caps, and cylinders that was found on the mummy of Reniseneb, a chieftain of Upper Egypt whose burial chamber was found at Thebes. 24 kt. gold-plated sterling silver and turquoise. Length 1 1/8 in. Pierced.
