    Los antiguos egipcios introdujeron una destacada renovación en el arte de la joyería, tabajando con la amatista, coralina, jaspe, onice, lapis lazuli, turquesa y quarzo. La plata cobró mas importancia que el oro durante largos años, debido a su escasez.

    Tomb of Tutankhamun, Egyptian, 18th Dynasty (1332-1323 BCE). This pectoral representing Tutankhamun's prenomen "NebKheperu Ra" features a basket (Neb) of gold, lapis and othe semiprecious stones, a lapis scarab with wings (kheperu), and the sun (Ra). Below the scarab lies the eye of Horus (representing wisdom) and the ankh (representing life). In the second row (below the line of dots of semi-precious stones) lotus blossoms dangle.

Tutankhamun pectoral with solar and lunar elements. Cloisonné with carnelian, lapis lazuli, calcite, obsidian and coloured glass. At its centre is a chalcedony scarab, which has falcon legs and talons.

Pectoral scarab found in Tutankhamun's tomb. This would have been worn during life hung from a gold chain on the chest. Below the bar is a decorative lotus fringe but above the bar the decoration is hieroglyphs that spell out one of the Kings names so while we just see it as decoration, an ancient Egyptian would read it as a word. Winged scarab, uraei (fire-breathing cobras), sacred Eyes, Ankh-signs, and Lotus fringe; this pectoral is composed of TutAnkhAmon's Royal Name as "King of Upper and Lower Egypt": "Neb-Kheperu-Ra" (the hieroglyphs of: basket, Scarab-in Plural-strokes, and the Sun), "Lord of the Forms of Ra"
