Lotus Blossom Drop Earrings from The Met Museum


Evoke the beauty and mystery of ancient Egypt when you adorn yourself with our unique lotus-shaped earrings in 18K gold plate decorated with an enamel finish in blue, green, and white. They are based on a faience lotus inlay in The Met collection from New Kingdom Egypt, which was made about 1400-1300 B.C. Lotuses grew abundantly along the Nile River. The lotus was an important symbol of rebirth because the blossom opens at sunrise and then closes after sunset; to the ancient Egyptian, the lotus reflected the sun at the dawn of creation.
