This sumptuous bracelet is developed from an ancient Greek original (Greek, Late Classical, ca. 350–300 B.C.) in the Museum’s collection. The original bracelet is thought to be from ancient Acarnania on the Ionian Sea. Although most surviving examples of Classical Greek jewelry are of gold, less precious pieces made of silver and bronze were probably more commonplace.
