This necklace consists of Black Onyx beads separated by gold rings. Its unique design is inspired by 2,000 year old jewellery found in ancient Etruscan tombs.

The Etruscan civilization, which flourished in central Italy between the 8th and the 5th centuries BC, left behind a language still not fully understood, as well as art and architecture created with great skill and inspiration. Etruscan gold jewellery excavated in the early 19th century was in great demand among ladies of the European courts and was often worn to state functions - a fashion called the Revivalist movement.

This classical-design necklace follows in the Revivalist tradition. Ideal as a gift, it is supplied in a keepsake box.
