This unique piece had a previous life in Egypt.

The Story: The Ankh, also known as Anokh, ansée cross, cross of life, key of life, Egyptian cross or Nile cross, is a hieroglyph representing the word “life”. The Egyptians believed that their sojourn on Earth was only a part of a greater eternal life. The cross of life, therefore, symbolizes not only mortal existence on Earth, but also their immortal existence in the afterlife.
