Lotus Bead Drop Earrings from The Met Museum


The ancient Egyptians loved the color blue, which represented the power of the heavens and water-and you will, too, when you wear these lotus-shaped drop earrings in 18K gold plate with blue glass beads. Our pretty pair is based on a detail on a faience ram with a lotus-shaped manger in The Met collection. This charming ram was made in the 2nd century during the period of Roman rule in Egypt. The faience composition may allude to Harpokrates, who was an immensely popular god of fecundity and rebirth during the Roman era.
