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

Exclusive to the British Museum, a gold-plated pendant necklace inspired by the Cyrus Cylinder.

This stunning pendant has been made from 24 carat gold-plated zinc on a gold-plated steel chain.

Often referred to as the first bill of human rights, the Cyrus Cylinder is one of the most famous artefacts from the ancient world. The cylinder is inscribed in Babylonian cuneiform with orders from the Persian King Cyrus the Great (559-530 BC) after he captured Babylon in 539 BC. The text encourages the freedom of worship throughout the Persian Empire, and allowed deported people to return to their homelands.

The Cyrus Cylinder was found in Babylon, modern Iraq, in 1879 during an excavation led by the British Museum.

A beautiful gift inspired by ancient politics.
