An elegant necklace featuring a gold pendant in the shape of an amphora (jar or vase).

Miniature amphorae were a popular type of decoration for necklaces and earrings in the third and second centuries B.C. They form some of the most attractive and finely worked pieces of Hellenistic jewellery.

This necklace is inspired from a gold pendant that is on display at the Metropolitan Museum, New York. The original was made in the second century B.C. The original adornment, in the shape of an amphora, was created after Alexander the Great conquered the Persian empire and extended his domain from Greece to Asia Minor, Egypt, the Near East, and India.
