Description
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. - (FJ.3198)
