Tutankhamun-inspired jewellery collection

"Heavy gold collars, carved jewels, scarabs, inlaid silver and a pectoral brooch weighted with turquoise and lapis fit the fancy of the now-mummified enigma King Tutankhamun. More than 3,000 years later the king remains a fashion icon, inspiring a new jewelry collection by Tamarac designer Ruth Hirtz that is the official jewelry line of the Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs exhibit. The collection will be making its way to the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale this fall before the much-anticipated arrival of Tutankhamun's burial artifacts and other treasures from the Valley of the Kings".
