This ring features a circa 1930s decorated blue glass element depicting an ancient Egyptian goddess. The detail suggests the piece was based on the goddess Wadjet because it is so sensitively detailed and colored rather than fanciful. We have placed her beneath the Eye of Horus, Egyptian symbol of protection, royal power and good health. Fascination with Egyptian archaeological discoveries profoundly influenced popular culture and art. Undisturbed intact articles found in the tombs became icons of romance and mystery. Glass workshops in Europe produced decorated elements to be used in the creation of jewelry in sync with Egyptian Revival fashion and design.
The sleek, tapering pierced panel is mounted to an adjustable, comfortable ring band to fit sizes 6-9.
