The Rosetta Stone was the key to under-covering the interpretation of the Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs because the stone contains a decree incorporating three languages; Ancient Hieroglyphs, Demotic and Ancient Greek. Now at the British Museum it is the most visited exhibit on display.
I've adapted my photography of the Rosetta Stone to create a bisection of the three texts and finished it in stunning black so the scripts pop from the gold of the brass underneath. Truly individual and perfectly apt for the linguist or Egyptologist in your life !
The brass cuff measures 1.5" tall and 5.5" round with an opening of 1.5", easily adjustable by using slight pressure once on your wrist. The brass (an alloy of zinc and copper) ages beautifully and uniquely; it will change patina over time and this is completely natural. The artwork I use is slightly translucent and the patterns you see are from the patina of the brass underneath. All protected under a sealant for extra durability but I would advise NOT to go rushing into the sea whilst wearing it or similar interactions with water.
This piece is handmade in England, United Kingdom so please allow 5-7 days before it can be shipped.
Arrives wrapped in non-tarnish tissue paper, gift boxed and tied with organza ribbon, completely gorgeous for gift-giving.
