Art History

Jewelry played a prominent role in ancient Greek life, ritual, and death. Artistic representations of daily activities reveal how affluent Greeks used jewelry to display wealth and prestige. During the Classical period, the emphasis was on finely crafted gold jewelry, while in the succeeding Hellenistic period, colored stones from the East became available and the conspicuous display of wealth gained acceptance.
