Large Sterling Silver Key of Life Ankh Pendant
The Ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol of life. It's referred to as the "key of life" or the "cross of life" or "breath of life". It is not just our mortal life that is represented by this ancient symbol, but the afterlife as well. Egyptians believed mortality and beyond together make up this eternal life.
The Ankh is thought to have originated as the belt buckle of Isis, thus also attributing the symbol to fertility.
We made this piece to celebrate life in all its forms! It's a simple, recognizable symbol that goes well as a layering piece or as a stand-alone. It speaks to those that wish to be minimal as well as those that wish to layer and adorn with other pieces.
Without the bail, this sterling silver Ankh pendant measures 2" in length. We offer this piece in two different sizes. The Small Breath of Life Ankh Sterling Silver Pendant version is 1.25" in length.
Our Serket Scorpion Citrine Sterling Silver Pendant also celebrates Ancient Egypt.
I died as mineral and became a plant,
I died as plant and rose to animal,
I died as animal and I was human,
Why should I fear? When was I less by dying?
Yet once more I shall die human,
To soar with angels blessed above.
And when I sacrifice my angel soul
I shall become what no mind ever conceived.
As a human, I will die once more,
Reborn, I will with the angels soar.
And when I let my angel body go,
I shall be more than mortal mind can know.
