Greek earrings with pendants
Inspired by the Greek necklace. This necklace is composed of a flexible chain from which hang a number of small identical pendants in the shape of elongated acorns or very narrow vases. Because of its short length, this type of adornment was worn very close to the neck.
During the Hellenistic Period, Greek goldsmiths liked to decorate necklaces and earrings with pendants in the shape of flowers, fruits, miniature vases, and animal heads. The gold original of this necklace was found in the Kertch region of Crimea (Southern Russia). Many other specimens of this type of jewel with similar pendants were found in the same region.
