This lovely Pewter Ankh Pendant is hand cast and hand finished in the USA, using Fine American Pewter. It has an Antique and Brushed Satin finish and is adorned with Genuine Swarovski Crystal. Ruby Red is the crystal birthstone for July and the Zodiac signs Cancer and Leo when they fall within the month. The Ankh is on an 18" leather cord with a lobster clasp and 2" extension chain.
The Ankh is the Egyptian hieroglyphic character that stood for the word "nh" meaning life. Egyptian Gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest. It is also known as the Egyptian Cross, or as crux ansata, Latin for "cross with a handle."
