in egypt the great workshops attached to the temples and palaces where fine-quality jewelry was produced were under the control of high officials; it is their names which have survived and in their tombs that the manufacture of jewelry was depicted. far less often are known the names of the craftsmen who actually shaped semi-precious stones into inlays, delicately tapped and chased precious metal into jewelry elements or strung beads into intricate collars, and most of those named are goldsmiths - the egyptian term is neby. although part at least of the jewelry-maker's art involved working with precious metal (indeed, it is no accident that the activities of precious-metal workers and jewelry-makers are always depicted side by side), still remarkably few of the skilled craftsmen who called themselves neshdy, earlier mesneshdy, are known. this word is best translated as 'jewelry-maker', although it actually means something more like 'worker in semi-precious stones'. however, the ability to shape a hard stone into an inlay to fit snugly within a cloison or to form an intricately detailed amulet from a pebble was the essence of the egyptian jewelry-maker's art, far more than the craft of the 'bead-maker' - iru weshbet - or 'stringer together of a collar' - seti nub. nevertheless, a recent study has identified less than thirty named men who bore the title over a period of fifteen hundred years, from the early new kingdom to the end of the ptolemaic period, and no tomb of a neshdy has ever been discovered.

Don’t help at all !!!!
What does this have to do with the Egyptian gods and goddess's clothing and jewelry?
This didn't help at all!!!!
Do your resources include a company or craftsman who can design and produce a replica of the signet ring owned by Priest Sienamun, Late Period? The ring is pictured on the Ancient Egyptian Jewelry Gemme Couture website. Thank you. Jan Bixler

Isn't the double cartouche ring depicted in the photo, the one found in the tomb of Tutankhamun? I believe that it was carved out of green aventurine.
I’m in search of a cartouche necklace I saw in a movie, Patricia Clarkson, wore “ in Cairo Time “ , can you research this for me? I would love just the pendant, in gold. If it can be the same as hers. Please let me know.
