These stunning reproduction lapis cabochon clip-on earrings are trimmed in blue and red enamel epoxy with matte gold finish for a beautiful shine. These clip-on earrings combine the most popular and powerful colors of Dynastic Egypt. Blue represented heaven and red, symbolizing blood, represented life. Gold, with its enduring sheen reflected the powerful rays of the sun god.
The original jewelry, found in the tomb of Tutankhamen, was made with faience (fired crushed quartz in various combinations) which was used regularly as a substitute for semiprecious stones. The jewelry of ancient Egypt often had talismanic properties and was believed to protect from harm.
