Description

Our dramatic necklace has been adapted from an original Late Hellenistic parure (matching set) consisting of a necklace and earrings. The original set (Greek, Late Hellenistic, 1st century B.C.) was crafted of gold and agate, and decorated with large cabochon garnets. Such fine parures are rare in this period in comparison to the rich material found in burials from the earlier part of the Hellenistic period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fine Piece of Jewelry I purchase a lot of high end costume jewelry and this necklace meets all my standards. Beautiful stones and beads, superb color, excellent metal work,the articulation of the jointed center pieces, etc. I will wear this piece with great joy and comfort. I also bought the ring .Again, the stone is beautiful and the metal is a lovely color. It is a large piece; not for the timid or a small hand. These pieces also blend so well with many of the other pieces that I already have. The carnelian is a true color. I am thrilled. I do hope that you restock the matching earrings soon. Is it possible to be notified if and when you do?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful necklace I received this for Valentine's day after strong hinting! It is every bit as beautiful as the photographs, lovely color and workmanship. I was worried it might be too short for someone plus size, but it just fits. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Big Christmas Surprise I bought this after my wife said she loved some of the jewelry shown in the Met's Holiday 2013 catalog. She was surprised when she received it as a Christmas gift and said she really loved the necklace.
