The prevailing bead color of Royal Blue really catches the eye supported by red, green and gold beading and pyramid, eagle and lotus charms make this a really pretty bracelet. I got it to go with the Aida scarf as a Xmas present and know my friend will love it as I do.
Inspired by Verdi's Aida, the Regal Egypt bracelet represents theme of life and death in ancient Egypt.
The colors of the beads on this bracelet were chosen to reflect Egyptian painting on parchment or stone. Deep blue beads evoke lapis lazuli so prized in Egyptian sculpture and jewelry. Glass hearts evoke the theme of love running through the opera. A Pyramid charm represents the setting of Egypt; An iridescent scarab bead symbolizes the cycle of life and death and a charm of the goddess Isis symbolizes Amneris's final prayer that heaven be opened to Radames and Aida.
All "Inspired By..." Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.
Such a bright and vibrant bracelet, love it! All my fave operas are represented here in such a lovely way! This represents the opera so well, another beautiful piece for my collection!
