Rising Sun Earrings with Turquoise

Egypt
This jewelry is adapted from a gold ball necklace belonging to Princess Muyet of the 11th Dynasty of King Neb-hepet-Re Montu-hopte II and was found at Thebes in 1921. Although earrings were not yet worn in Egypt during the Middle Kingdom, the use of hollow metal balls in other forms of ornamentation was particularly popular during the 11th Dynasty. Gold, also called "flesh of the gods," was regarded as a divine metal among the ancient Egyptians, reflecting the glory and the power of the sun.
