Egyptian Rosette Openwork Station Necklace with Onyx Beads from The Met Museum


Loop this delicate, 36-inch strand around your neck and adorn yourself with a floral form borrowed from ancient Egypt. The airy openwork flowers in 18K gold plate alternate from large to small, stationed between chic black onyx beads-for a decidedly contemporary look. Wear it on its own as a reflection of your bold style. Or mix and match however you’d like with our other Egyptian Rosette pieces, which are designed to be layered. This graceful necklace echoes the design of two ancient Egyptian beads in The Met collection. Shaped like blossoms, the beads were fashioned in faience during Dynasty 18 of the New Kingdom, about 1390-1353 B.C. Faience’s color and shine, features that were closely tied to the gift of life, contributed to an object’s magical properties.
