Description
The timeless radiance of classical gold is set to perfection by sky blue beads first worn in Ancient Egypt. Gold has been prized since earliest antiquity for its beauty and rarity, while the color blue is thought to bring good fortune and happiness to those who wear it, this elegant necklace would have caused sensation in the palaces Thebes, Alexandria or Rome; in the modern world it will do no less. The person who wears this unusual ornament today will certainly be both lucky and happy. - (FJ.3881)
