Tell me more.
I think you are the first visitor to ask about this ring! As you can see, the ancient Egyptians wore jewelry much like the jewelry that people still wear today. The "gems" in this one are made of glass, ancient costume jewelry!
The metal you see is kind of an interesting material though. Referred to as electrum, it is made of a mixture of silver and gold. Like today, these two metals were considered precious by many ancient cultures valued the two mixed together which could occur naturally or be artificially created.
It’s beautiful. It struck me that it looks so much like today’s jewelry
"Nothing new under the sun," or so they say. You'll see jewelry throughout the ancient Egyptian galleries and you can even see people wearing it in sculptures and reliefs.
