Egyptian Senebtisi Beaded Hoop Earrings from The Met Museum


Our stylish beaded hoops reinterpret a gold clasp (ca. 1850-1775 B.C.) now in The Met collection and formerly belonging to Senebtisi, an ancient Egyptian noblewoman. The early 20th-century discovery of her remarkable tomb was unparalleled at the time; her mummy was adorned with exquisite ritual jewelry suggesting an association with royalty, and she was buried with ceremonial staves, previously thought exclusive to high-born men. Knots were popular symbols during Egypt’s Middle Kingdom, as they were imbued with protective properties.
