The use of amulets can be traced throughout all of ancient Egypt, from the Predynastic to the Roman Period (ca. 4400 B.C.–fourth century A.D.). Early amulets often take the shape of animals, while only a few amulets that clearly represent deities predate the New Kingdom (ca. 1550–1070 B.C.). A special category of amulets is the so-called seal-amulet, which functioned as an amulet but could also be used as a seal. This particular design was taken from a protection seal amulet and was meant to be a magical shield to the wearer to keep them from harm. Sterling silver plated in rhodium with a small cubic zirconia stone on a 16" length chain with extension.
