Nefertiti Cameo Pendant

Designer Notes and Details

As seen on Season 3 of HBO's Insecure!

Queen Nefertiti remains  a global icon of beauty, regality and power; when worn the Nefertiti Signet Cameo Necklace is a reminder of these qualities that lie within.
Nefertiti (1300bc), whose name means "a beautiful woman has come," was the queen of Egypt and partner Pharaoh Akhenaten during the 14th century B.C.  Together, they birthed an artistic revolution of realism; during their reign it was royal law that Egyptians be depicted are they actually appeared, naturalistic and with a sense of movement. This was a radical move breaking off from the artistic tradition of their predecessors, where portrayals of Egyptians appeared stenciled and rigid. Perhaps most noteworthy, her husband established the cult of Aten, the Sun God. Egypt, formerly a civilization of polytheistic (many gods) worship, became a monotheistic one, worshipping only one deity, the Sun.
