“The multicolor faience floral elements on this necklace were originally part of a broad collar, also known as a wesekh collar. Worn by both men and women, the broad collar is one of the most recognizable types of jewelry from ancient Egypt. It remained popular throughout the pharaonic period.” (Jennifer Wegner, label text, “Sacred Adornment: Jewelry as Belief in Ancient Egypt”)
