stone carved cartouche with hieroglyphicsWhat is a Cartouche?  A Cartouche  (pronounced "kar-toosh") is actually a French word meaning 'gun cartridge'. When Napoleon's soldiers were in Egypt, they called the oval shaped etchings surrounding the king names "cartouche" because it reminded them of the shape of their gun cartridges, or bullets. Cartouches have a a long lasting legend that dates back over 5000 years ago. The use of the cartouche started during the Fourth Dynasty under Pharaoh Sneferu.  Prior to this the name of the kings and gods were written in a rectangular frame.  The cartouche was known in ancient Egypt as the shenu, derived from the Egyptian word "Sheni" which means to encircle.. A Cartouche was originally designed for the Pharaohs  to be an amulet of  protection.  Each Cartouche had the name of the person wearing it written in Egyptian Hieroglyphics. This was particularly important that it the name be permanently preserved in stone, because as long as the name was spoken the soul lived on.  Your personalized cartouche jewelry will be  hand made in our  Cairo workshop.  Custom orders welcomed. 


*Please note:  Specifications dimensions are approximate.    Size will vary according to symbols. Some names will have symbols that are more vertical in nature than horizontal.  This will dictate the final length. There are no refunds on cartouches as each one is a personalized order.   All of our jewelry bears a hallmark stamp of the government, attesting to the fact that it is Sterling silver. It is not a dent, or a flaw, it is the stamp, this is your protection that you are getting what we advertise.  The artists reserve the right to choose the hieroglyphic symbols and arrangement. (Some letters such as "a" "h" and "m" have two symbols.) If you have particular symbols please advise us in the "Special Instructions" box on the order form.
