Do you know anything about the history of Egyptian gold collars? i.e. the earliest examples, their origin and development, etc?
The most important ones seem to be an evolution of a funerary object in the family of the Usekh collars used since the early dynasties. And personally [even if this is not exactly my field of specialization] I do think that the original Usekh has been the model for the later developments of golden collars.
