Add a touch of history to your bracelet with this marvelous sterling silver clip-on charm from the Israel Museum’s spectacular Egyptian Collection! Unique and interesting, this remarkable Ankh Cross has a rich history behind it that makes it a fascinating accessory to wear. Originating in Ancient Egypt, the Ankh was an old hieroglyphic symbol that represented life and eternal afterlife, and it was this symbolism and its visual similarities to the Christian Cross that inspired early Christian missionaries to eventually adopt it as a symbol of Christ. Because of the Ankh’s ongoing symbolic association with eternal life, it remains quite popular among many modern-day Christians, who see it as a reminder of the eternal life achieved through Christ, as it is written in the Bible, “Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” - John 14:6. Sure to make an outstanding gift from the Holy Land for any enthusiast of history and faith, this incredible charm will be a fantastic addition to any bracelet!
This delicate charm is extremely versatile and can be clipped onto a huge variety of different bracelet chains.
