Ancient Egyptian Arrowhead


This ancient Egyptian arrowhead is in excellent condition, with little corrosion or wear. It is set in 22K gold with a large bale to accommodate a thick cord so that it can be worn by a man. Examples of ancient arrowheads can be found in the Egyptian wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the side galleries adjacent to the main exhibits.

The 17-inch necklace is a hand-made, 22K gold, double loop-in-loop (Roman style) chain. These chains are time-consuming to make. The gold is drawn into thin wires, fused to form loops (jump rings) which are then assembled by passing two loops inside one another. Examples of this ancient style can be found in the Etruscan, Roman, Greek and Egyptian collections in museums around the world.
