Gold and navy blue necklace and earring combo with the Eye of Horus pendant.
According to legend, the Egyptian god Osiris had a son, Horus. His jealous brother, Seth, killed Osiris. Horus then attacked Seth to revenge his father’s death. During the epic battle, Horus lost his eye. The god Thot came to Horus’s aid and was able to restore the eye to health. Horus then fed the eye to his father, Osiris, bringing him back to life.
Horus’s eye thus became a symbol of power, protection and health.
The shape of the Eye of Horus is actually a mixture of a human eye and a stylized falcon. The elongated eyelids and brow are part of the human element representing the god Horus, while the projections along the bottom represent the legs and tail of the falcon from the more ancient sun god, Heru-Ur. The Eye of Horus is often seen in ancient hieroglyphics and on modern Egyptian goods.
