Take a trip through the halls of antiquity with Joseph Nogucci's NEW Pharaoh Charmballa Collection! Drawing from the history of the classical Egyptians, the Pharaoh Charmballa collection includes a dazzling Cleopatra, dark and powerful Ramses, and an mysterious Akhenaten. Each piece was designed with the history and mythology if its namesake in mind.
The Pharaoh Charmballas are crafted from brilliant rhodium plating. The bright Cleopatra is accented with a stunning white cord. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the gun-metal Ramses has a deep and dark black strand. The enigmatic Akhenaten lies somewhere in between, the grey rhodium complimented by a matching grey nylon strand.
Cleopatra is likely the most well known of the Egyptian Pharaohs, and with good reason. In a time where few women rose to positions of great power and authority, Cleopatra ascended the throne as a living god ahead of her hostile brother and his scheming advisors. As Pharaoh, she allied herself with the iconic Julius Caesar and took him as a lover, eventually having a child with the great Roman.
Cleopatra was a scion of the Ptolemaic Dynasty, a Macedonian transplant founded by Alexander the Great's companion Ptolemy after the break-up of Alexander's great empire. The Ptolemies, despite their Macedonian-Greek heritage, ruled Egypt for nearly three hundred years. Their Hellenistic cultural infusion into one of the world's most ancient and storied civilizations created one of the most intriguing and historically rich periods of Egyptian history.
Cleopatra went on to share one of history's greatest romances with Marc Antony, another Roman of iconic stature. Even Shakespeare was drawn into the tale and wrote Antony and Cleopatra, a play dramatizing and further immortalizing their affair.
