Description

The centerpiece of this striking necklace is its dramatic closure with amethyst stones set in an elaborate interlace. The closure is based on a decorative marble panel from the tenth to the eleventh century in the Museums collection, possibly made in Constantinople. Marble panels such as these were used throughout the Byzantine world as bases for templons, which were the barriers developed in Byzantine churches to separate the sanctuary, located in the apse, from the public space, or nave.

Silver overlay, with amethyst and rock crystal. Box and tongue closure. 17''L.

  • Silver overlay
  • Amethyst and rock crystal
  • Box and tongue closure
  • 17''L

Art History

In the medieval period, the templon was a low barrier, often constructed of marble panels and supporting elements. Since such panels were widely exported, they are also found in Italian churches, especially in the region around Venice, where Byzantine sculpture was closely copied.
