Description

Destroyed by invasions and earthquakes in the thirteenth century, the city of Nishapurs ruins lay underground until a team of Metropolitan Museum and Iranian archaeologists excavated the site in the 1930s and '40s. Many of the excavated objects were household items made of ceramic, metal, and stone. Among the finds are three strings of black stone beads (8th12th century), which are elegantly carved into faceted and teardrop shapes. Our bold necklace is based on the original beads.

18K gold overlay, with reconstituted stone. Lobster claw closure. Adjusts from 17 1/2''L to 19 1/2''L with extender chain.

Art History

The city of Nishapur, founded in northeastern Iran around the third century A.D., grew to prominence in the eighth century. As one of the largest cities on the Silk Road, which ran from China to the Mediterranean, Nishapur flourished, benefiting from taxes on silks, ceramics, textiles, glass and metal wares, seeds, spices, jade, and lapis lazuli that were bought and sold by traveling caravans.
