Although the Ankh symbol is widely recognized as Egyptian, its origins are hard to determine. Scholars have a hard time agreeing on the meaning. The Ankh is often considered the symbol of life.
Our pendant seems to represent such meaning with the image of a man and woman facing each other on the front of the cross as lovers with only a breath separating them.
The large bale is in the back of the cross and can accommodate a chain, cord or ribbon. This allows the pendant to hang nicely. The pendant measures 1-3/8 inch long by 7/8 inch wide.
