A 24k gold-plated necklace based on the Cyrus Cylinder in the British Museum.

The Cyrus Cylinder is one of the most famous objects to have survived from the ancient world. Originating from Babylon (modern Iraq) over 2,000 years ago, it is often referred to as the first bill of human rights. This is because it is inscribed with text that appears to encourage freedom of worship throughout the Persian Empire and to allow deported people to return to their homelands.
