A Short History...

In 1922, Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun and, thereby, ignited a Western fascination with Ancient Egypt which permeated the Arts. Jewellery and accessories designers created heavily stylised profiles of people and hieroglyphs taken from tomb walls and incorporated them into their work. Reviving Egyptian motifs was a real 1920s celebration of adventure and breaking down cultural barriers.
