Rau Antiques Victorian Micromosaic Necklace

Egyptomania was at all-time high during the nineteenth century when western tourists made their way to the pyramids at Giza and photographs of the ancient sites were first published around the world. This vintage gold and micromosiac necklace designed for enthusiasts then, makes me want walk like an Epyptian now. And the time is ripe. With the recent publication of Cleopatra: A Life and Angelina Jolie set to star in the film based on the book, the sphinx style is making a major comeback.
