Geometric Gold Finial Necklace

Geometric Gold Finial Necklace

This necklace is based on an Ancient Greek style of hair piece. The design has been incorporated into a beautiful piece of jewelry. In Ancient Greece, hair was considered to be a beautiful, important fashion statement to both men and women. Hair jewellery had been known since the time of Homer, who described the different styles in his writings. While the traditional leaf wreath is more commonly associated with ancient
Greeks, pieces like this geometric gold hair-brooch with flat finials, found in a tomb in Corinth, were also quite common. Later, fine Roman hairnets were in use, made of pure gold, studded with jewels such as rubies or pearls

Materials: bass finials and snake chain with gold finish. Chain length: 18 inches
