Lotus Egyptian Cuff Bracelet by Museum Reproductions

Symbolism always played a very important role in Egyptian art. The lotus flower, which frames the setting on each side, is directly linked to the idea of rebirth. It is from this flower that the sun rises every morning. In the Book of the Dead of Ancient Egypt, a chapter is devoted to the rebirth of the deceased under this aspect. Furthermore, the color red evokes the notion of energy and dynamism, the dark blue of lapis lazuli symbolizes the deep blue of the sky at night, while the light blue of the turquoise stone is a symbol of joy.

Gold plated bracelet is set with turquoise and carnelian stones. It is 1 inch wide at its widest (the lotus flowers) and tapers gracefully to 5/8 inch. The bracelet is overall about 9 inches long and can fit wrists up to about 8 1/2 inches. It can be gently bent to fit, however do not bend repeatedly as any metal can break under repeated stress. Adjust once and then slip on/off thru the gap in the cuff (slip it on from the side of your wrist and rotate into place).

Developed for the Réunion des Musées Nationaux - a portion of the sale of this bracelet benefits the museum.

Lapis Lazuli Lapis lazuli is a relatively rare semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense blue color. Lapis lazuli was being mined in the Badakhshan province of Afghanistan as early as the 3rd millennium B.C.E. Trade in the stone is ancient enough for lapis jewelry to have been found at Predynastic Egyptian and ancient Sumerian sites, and as lapis beads at neolithic burials in Mehrgarh, the Caucasus, and even as far from Afghanistan as Mauritania. It is deep blue with veining, usually in white, with flecks of gold and/or silver.
Turquoise Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminium. It is rare and valuable in finer grades and has been prized as a gem and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue. It has been used in jewelry and decorative uses thru the ages in Ancient Egypt as well as in many native American crafts.
Origin Hand made in the USA
Gold Vermeil Vermeil is a combination of sterling silver, gold, and other precious metals, commonly used as a component in jewelry. A typical example is sterling silver coated with 14 carat (58%) gold. To be considered vermeil, the gold must be at least 10 carat (42%) and be at least 2.5 micrometres thick. Vermeil can be produced by either fire-gilding or electrolysis. Today, vermeil is safely produced by electrolysis. It is very durable with normal wear but as with all plating methods, it can be worn away in reaction with some people or chemicals
Mixed Metal Metal alloy with a silver or gold tone usually a blend of tin, copper and other materials. Lead free. May contain trace amounts of nickel which is used in silver tone pieces to enhance shine. Often plated with gold, silver or brass.
