Set with a beautiful carnelian stone, this elegant necklace also features a mesh chain manufactured in the USA. The deep red stone’s rich tones and the gold plating make this a true statement piece. Jewelry played a prominent role in ancient Greek life and ritual, with pieces often passed down as family heirlooms. The Met collection includes a parure, or matching set (Greek, Late Hellenistic, 1st century B.C.), featuring a gold and agate necklace and earrings with large cabochon garnets. Our gilded mesh necklace with a labradorite cabochon celebrates these ancient originals.
