This genuine Ancient Egyptian faience Eye of
Horus amulet has been mounted in a modern 18
karat gold setting that serves as the buckle for
this modern 18 karat gold rope chain tassel belt.
The Ancient Egyptians loved the color blue, to
which they ascribed magical protective powers.
The artisans of the new kingdom created faience
amulets in a variety of rich blue shades that
imitated rare and costly lapis or turquoise. The
most powerful of all Egyptian charms was the
far-seeing eye of the falcon God Horus, thought
to avert any ill fortune or evil. This splendid
example glows with the deep blue of a moonlit
sky. Set amid a gold belt of dazzling beauty, it
continues to radiate a benevolent spell as old and
mysterious as Egypt itself.
