"The obelisk symbolized the sun god Amon Re, and during the brief religious reformation of Akhenaten was said to be a petrified ray of the Aten, the sundisk. It was also thought that the god existed within the structure."- Wikipedia.
It is said that the obelisk was also inspired by a naturally occuring phenomenon called a sun pillar. These earrings are insprired by these beautiful egyptian masterpieces.
