    This classic Greek Finial necklace is inspired by an original gold collar in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The original collar features conical finials ornamented with lion heads. The chains from which the terminals hang are intertwined to form a Herakles Knot.

    Jewellery played an essential role in Greek life, ritual and death. Artistic representations of daily activities, as well as literary accounts of historical events, reveal how fashionable Greeks used jewellery to display wealth and prestige. Offered as gifts to the gods at turning points in people's lives, jewellery was worn to celebrate marriage, birth and military victory. Jewellery also accompanied people in death.
