Middle Kingdom Knot Silver Pendant Necklace, Horizontal from The Met Museum


Our handsome horizontal pendant recalls 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 adaptation in sterling silver.
