The Museum’s collection includes a series of glass ornaments (Late Helladic III, ca. 1400–1200 B.C.) that represent the most characteristic motifs among Mycenaean ornaments. The presence of miniscule holes indicates that these ornaments were strung together, and evidence from excavations shows that they were worn as diadems and as necklaces. Our distinctive necklace is derived from these stunning ancient glass originals.

Art HistoryMycenaean is the term applied to the art and culture of Greece from about 1600 to 1100 B.C. The name derives from Mycenae in the Peloponnese, the site of a great Mycenaean palace. During this period, settlements on the Greek mainland enjoyed an era of prosperity. Local workshops produced utilitarian objects as well as luxury items, such as carved gems, jewelry, vases in precious metals, and glass ornaments.
