Description

Middle Kingdom Black Onyx Necklace

Combining black onyx and gold spacers, this striking necklace is inspired by ancient Egyptian jewelry. Circa 2100 – 1700, these two precious elements held great significance in the Middle Kingdom. Black onyx was often carried by soldiers into war for protection against injury. Gold was regarded as a divine metal that reflected the power of the sun.

Measuring 20” long, it has a gold finished lobster claw closure. Gift box included.
This splendid necklace is reflective of the spectacular costume and jewelry designs featured in the Met’s magnificent production of Aida.

History

Set against the epic backdrop of ancient Egypt, Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida (1871) is an intimate love story about one man and two women who get caught between their personal feelings and the fate of their nations. The great Triumphal Scene at the center of Act II ranks among opera’s most celebrated moments.
