the Nefertiti NecklaceAwe Fine jewelry
Nefertiti demands nothing less than hand-applied enamel inlay and a hand-cut border motif inspired by her infamous bust from c.1348 B.C. It’s important to give Nefertiti the modern commemoration she deserves for co-ruling Egypt alongside her husband Amenhotep. When he founded the first religion in human civilization to honor a single supreme god, Nerfertiti became his divine priestess. Note the sunken relief lines reflecting the carved jewelry and stone surfaces of the ancient times, also commonly used in Egyptian revival art of the early 1900s.
