This stunning pendant is inspired by the ancient Egyptian symbol "Eye of Horus", the falcon headed god. The symbol representing his eye was a powerful symbol that is used for protection from evil, and also used to confer wisdom, health, and prosperity. Gold was considered the skin of the gods, and was the metal of choice for most jewelers. In keeping with tradition, this artist used the favorite stones of the Egyptians to complete this intermediate piece.
