What Are Cartouche Pendants?
A Cartouche is an oval-shaped frame that encloses the Egyptian hieroglyphs that represent the name of an Egyptian God or a royal person. Typically, a Cartouche has a horizontal stand at one end and a rope which binds the stand and the oval frame together. Cartouches are normally designed vertically but they can also be positioned horizontally depending on the hieroglyphs. Kings and queens would get their throne names and birth names engraved on a cartouche.
Today, this ancient concept is converted into a luxurious accessory that you can use to build your individual style statement. You can buy beautiful Cartouche jewellery that will have your name in hieroglyphic symbols.
