Tutankhamun was probably the best-known ruler of Egypt - also known as the 'Boy King' it is thought that he ruled for about nine years before he died aged eighteen. His name meant 'the living image of Amun'. This pendant of Tutankhamuns mask has a vulture on the headdress which signified dominance over Upper Egypt, a cobra representing dominance over Lower Egypt, and falcons on the shoulders as a connection to Horus. The original mask was made from solid gold and inlaid with precious jewels and coloured glass. You might choose to wear this symbol to show a love of all things Egyptian.

The Peter Stone Company purchases raw silver and produces their own true .925 sterling silver alloy in their own factory. All rings are cast to size and craftsmen cut and inlay each stone for a perfect fit. Every piece of jewellery created is hand polished not tumble polished, which leads to a high quality finish that is noticeably different.
Peter Koslowski had been working on merchant ships since 1983 while living in Sri Lanka and was fortunate to be exposed to an abundance of precious stones and he began to purchase and trade them, as well as silver. During this period he also studied gemology and jewellery making in a number of countries. This then lead to the founding of the Peter Stone Company in 1992 in Bangkok, Thailand, where he still resides.
