A 24k gold-plate 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. <br> <br> This historically inspired piece is designed in Paris and made from 24k gold-plated bronze.

A gold-plated pendant necklace inspired by the Babylonian Cyrus Cylinder, now housed in the British Museum.

The striking necklace is crafted from 24 carat gold-plated bronze, and is supplied in a presentation box.

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 monumental gift inspired by ancient history.
