The dresses and funerary attires of the pre-Columbian elites were adorned with necklaces and other ornaments made of precious metals. Even though these are ornaments with small and delicate parts they are finely crafted to represent symbolic motifs in detail. Human and divine figures, heads of snakes, felines and other animals, as well as other elements of nature are portrayed in necklaces, pendants, tiaras and bracelets, like the flowers in this gold necklace.

Las indumentarias y ajuares funerarios de las élites precolombinas estaban adornados con collares y otros adornos confeccionados en metales preciosos. Si bien se trata de ornamentos con piezas pequeñas y delicadas, están trabajados finamente para representar motivos simbólicos con detalle. En collares, colgajos, diademas y brazaletes podemos identificar personajes humanos y divinos, cabezas de serpientes, felinos, y otros animales, y otros elementos de la naturaleza, como las flores en este collar de oro.
