Bactrian, today northern Afghanistan | valuable Necklace




The campaigns of Alexander the Great in the first half of 300 BC in the Middle East produced a contact between Greek and Eastern civilizations.
This meeting gave strong influences in the arts and the making of jewels and ornaments: new designs were born as an union between traditional shapes and decorations from both cultures.
Among the treasures discovered in the excavations: Stone grains, Gold and glass beads and spinning reels in Ivory and Bone, dyed with vegetal colors and decorated with geometrical patterns.

This Necklace, realized with pieces from the excavation itself, has been threaded with a silk lace of adjustable length, which enhances its value.
