Middle Kingdom Knot Silver Drop Earrings from The Met Museum


Our handsome drop earrings evokes silver knot bracelets made in ancient Egypt’s Dynasty 12 to early Dynasty 13 (ca. 1850-1775 B.C.). Most common in the Middle Kingdom, bracelets of this type were based on the belief that protective spells could be bound to the wearer through a knot-a motif used in jewelry for centuries. This sophisticated design is echoed by our fashionable adaptations in sterling silver.
