The Ankh in Ancient Egypt

Like many modern jewellery charms, the Ankh has roots in the ancient civilisations of thee Mediterranean. In particular, the ankh appears frequently in Egyptian tomb paintings and other art, often at the fingertips of a god or goddess in images that represent the deities of the afterlife conferring the gift of life on the dead person’s mummy; this is thought to symbolize the act of conception. Additionally, an ankh was often carried by Egyptians as an amulet, either alone, or in connection with two other hieroglyphs that mean “strength” and “health” (see explication of djed and was, above).  Mirrors of beaten metal were also often made in the shape of an ankh, either for decorative reasons or to symbolize a perceived view into another world.

Egyptologists still are not sure where the idea of the Ankh came from. There are some that think it is the combination of male and female. They believe that the symbol was first used as a kind of belt buckle for the goddess Isis.

Ankh Jewellery

Ankhs were made out of just about everything that the ancient Egyptians could craft. From metals such as bronze and gold to glazed ceramics, stone and wood. In many cases they would add inscriptions on them for amulets. The symbol was included as decoration for the furniture of the wealthy as well as the Pharaoh.  Since it meant the key of life, it was thought to bring good luck to the owner. Jewellery has been found that contain the image of the ankh.
