Anuket Egyptian Spiral and Emerald Earrings

Gold & Stone Earrings

Created by Nancy Troske
Anuket was the first Egyptian goddess of the Nile river, celebrated when the Nile began it's annual flooding of the delta. Egyptian agriculture depended on this seasonal flooding to deposit needed nutrients to enrich soil. People celebrated by throwing coins and jewelry into the river, thanking Anuket for her gifts.

Anuket could have worn earrings like these at the Nile festival. Spirals symbolized rebirth, which is what the Nile did every year for ancient Egypt. Emeralds were a gemstone often seen in ancient Egypt, their green color symbolized fertility and rebirth.

These earrings are hand fabricated from silky smooth, solid 22 karat gold. Small emerald beads are suspended from the bottom spiral. The artist makes her own gold wire using ancient jewelry making techniques.
