Egyptian Ankh


According to old belief amulets and talismans are tools to trigger changes in life. In order to achieve this talismans transfer positive powers while amulets grant protection by absorbing negative energies.
The hieroglyph ankh stands for the material life but also for the afterlife in the world to come: One therefore finds old Egyptian depictions showing a god handing over this hieroglyph to the pharao as a symbol for life. An Egyptian ankh is also called crux ansata (cross with a handle), key of life or the key of the Nile. According to old belief this talisman is said to bestow health, prosperity and a long life. Also many Egyptian gods are shown with an ankh which they carry on its handle, or they are depicted with arms crossed in front of their chest and holding an ankh in each hand. Sometimes the ankh is even shown near the nose on these images to symbolize the connection between living and breathing.
The crusaders brought knowledge in engineering, craftsmanship and science from Arabia, India, China and Egypt to Europe. Among other things medieval knights of the 16th century wore this pendant not only as jewelry but also as an aid to achieve changes in their lives. This Egyptian talisman therefore was very popular as a fortune charm.
This pendant is made of brass which is a copper zinc alloys with 10 - 45% zinc. Beautiful pieces of jewelry which do not tarnish over time can be produced from this yellow golden material. Brass is a popular material for jewelry production, because it is very malleable and also has a good corrosion resistance even after long wearing.

About us Arrow, Mist (Page: Egyptian Ankh) [136 x 22 px]
We were always fascinated by pieces of jewelry designed according to historical artwork and magical and other old motifs are a main area of our jewelry collection until today. Nowadays we all are surrounded by designs and motifs from all over the world which we usually choose according to visual aspects without considering the original meaning and symbolism of the various depictions. For sure the beauty of the different designs and materials is a good reason for selecting them but the affinity to a special piece of jewelry or art craft can be enhanced if one knows its deeper meaning and its origin. For this reason we always placed value on the accurate representation and information explaining the various pieces of jewelry in our collection.
Jewelry always had various functions which changed during the course of time: Because of the precious materials that were often used for its design it often was a valuable asset and sometime was even used as a currency. But especially in ancient cultures the spiritual meaning of a piece of jewelry was always important and the different motifs were symbols for the affiliation of its wearer to and his status in a social group. Furthermore jewelry can also serve a practical purpose like this is the case with safety pins, belt buckles and brooches.
On account of these many different purposes the meaning of single pieces of jewelry can be very different and depends on the belief and the point of view of the respective manufacturer. In some cultures, e.g., bracelets were used as wedding jewelry, like the wedding rings of today, in other societies necklaces served the same purpose. The symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry often cannot only be found in the piece itself, but also in its decorations or the used materials. In some cultures it is usual to give pieces of jewelry as a gift at certain important times in life which should emphasize the symbolic meaning of these events with the help of their decorations. These pieces were then often worn as amulets or talismans and were believed to protect and support its wearer during this new situation in life.
Not only the used symbols and decorations differ strongly between the cultures - a huge number of different materials were also used in the course of time. In the beginnings especially shells and pearls of wood and bone were used, because these natural materials were readily available and could easily be processed. Later the precious metals silver and gold became more and more important and also the use of precious stones increased. Nowadays all possible materials are used to underline the meaning of a piece of jewelry even further thereby creating pendants and other jewelry that could not be designed using traditional materials.
Also the piece of jewelry on this page http://www.aval
shows a unique combination of material and symbolism. This is the information about our website and this page if you want to point to it:
  • Website: Our short information is "Avalon's Treasury - Gems, Jewelry & Minerals"
  • Page: According to ancient belief an Egyptian ankh bestows healthiness and prosperity.

Furthermore we try to take into consideration all cultures and epochs, so that everybody can find his quite unique piece of jewelry at our shop.
