Exquisite 14k gold Ankh, embellished with eleven semi-precious stones and beautifully engraved.
The extra large size and superb use of varying colored stones makes this pendant beautiful and striking. The design is continued into the extra large bale that will allow for a generous size chain.
The history of the Ankh is quite fascinating going back to ancient times. The Ankh is a hieroglyphic character that reads "life". It is the Egyptian symbol of eternal life and the giving of life and one of the most potent symbols represented in Egyptian art. And while it was an important symbol to the ancient Egyptians, it is an enduring icon that remains with us even today as a Christian cross.
