Cartouche History - A Pendant that Protects

Posted by Steve Collins on

A cartouche (pronounced ‘kar-toosh’) is an ancient Egypt nameplate or seal.  Every pharaoh, king and queen had their name spelled in hieroglyphs in the oval shaped cartouche. This was meant to protect them and their name for eternity.


We use hieroglyphic symbols that represent sounds closest to our English language. Discoveries has been working with artisans in Egypt for over 40 years to bring these treasures to America.

We offer our cartouche jewelry in multiple finishes and styles. Have a special request? Contact us directly!
