Description

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning necklace I bought this a month ago and it is one of the most stunning necklaces I have ever had. I need to use the full 2 inch extender on it so I'm glad it features that. The goldleaf on the leaves is beautiful and the color of the blue and red stones is stunning. You will not be disappointed!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not well crafted I gave my wife this necklace for Christmas. She was delighted with it but was disappointed that after wearing it once the nylon thread that holds the necklace in proper alignment had stretched and the careful design of the necklas was now uneven and not very enjoyable to look at and wear,
