Our lovely necklace is based on an ancient headdress of gold leaves separated by lapis lazuli and carnelian beads. This rare adornment in The Met collection was made about 2600- 2500 B.C. in Mesopotamia, "the land between the rivers" at the heart of the ancient Near East.

Excavations at the ancient Mesopotamian site of Ur uncovered the remains of the city and a Sumerian cemetery dating to the third millennium B.C. The so- called royal graves at Ur contained many extraordinary finds, including magnificent jewelry such as this lavish headdress, which was found on a female attendant to the king.
