Eye of Horus Earrings
This pair of earrings was inspired by the ancient Egyptian wadjet eye, or the eye of the sky god Horus. The sky god was believed to be ever watchful for the presence of the evil eye and able to counteract its effects. The Eye of Horus was one of the many symbols that came into being with the development of hieroglyphics. The symbol appeared on objects, were used in writing, and were considered protective as amulets. Our watchful eye has been adapted from one that appears on an ancient box in our Egyptian collection.
