What’s the Secret Behind Egyptian Cartouche Jewelry?

Egyptian jewelry history is linked to the godlike pharaohs, and in the case of what we now call a “cartouche” {actually shenu in ancient Egyptian}, they were worn exclusively by pharaohs or gods and placed on tombs / monuments, primarily as an amulet to protect against evil in the afterlife or to illustrate eternal authority and immortal power.

What Des Cartouche Mean?

The word “cartouche” was coined by French soldiers who thought the shape resembled the cartridges in their guns, but the original form was auspicious, placed only around a royal name or depicted with Horus {the falcon god} or Nekhbet {the vulture goddess}.

It wasn’t only the hieroglyph {which was always the pharaohs name}that held powder, but also the elliptical shape itself – an elongated form of the “shen ring” meaning “encircled”. The round and the lengthened oval version of the original shape, protected the bearer and represented eternal power.

Order Custom Egyptian Cartouche Jewelry

You can have what was once reserved for immortal winged gods and all powerful pharaohs – a silver or 18k gold cartouche pendant, handcrafted in Egypt – with your name in hieroglyphs or letters.
