The Wadjet (or Ujat, meaning "Whole One") was a powerful symbol of protection in ancient Egypt. It is also known as the "Eye of Horus" and the "all seeing eye". This handcrafted silver necklace depicts the "Eye of Horus," a symbol of protection. The symbol was frequently used in jewelry made of gold, silver, lapis, wood, porcelain, and carnelian, to ensure the safety and health of the bearer and provide wisdom and prosperity. The continued interest in this ancient symbol is a tribute to the power of the design and also to the power of belief and the need for protection.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
