For as long as people have been discovering ancient artifacts, we've been trying to emulate their styles and techniques. We can especially see this every time discoveries were made of Egyptian antiquities - Napoleon's forays into Egypt and the 1809-1826 publication of "Description de l'Égypte" launched inspired styles in the early Victorian era, and the 1922 discovery of King Tutankhamun spurred a bout of Egyptomania in the Art Deco period through mid-century.

This miniature piece has been modelled in 18k gold (and bears several spots of file marks from multiple curious testers of days past, as the piece is unstamped) and decorated with colourful enamel. While the charm would have originally had a matching mummy tucked inside, it's been lost over the decades and a small non-gold replacement was made along the way. The charm snaps closed with a satisfying click.

We love this charm on a bracelet full of treasures, or worn alone on a chain as a pendant. Let the little sarcophagus serve as a reminder to keep an curious mind and open heart to cultures of different places and times, or even as memento mori - that this precious life is fleeting and we are all mere mortals. YOLO!
