Greek jewellery created in the Classical and Hellenistic periods from the 5th to the 2nd centuries BCE is famous for its remarkable artistic quality and high level of craftsmanship. The goldsmiths crafted superlative pieces, such as the delicate pendant earrings depicted. Along with a refined necklace complemented with filigreed flowers, as well as many other items of adornment – including a magnificent burial wreath made of pure gold – they were part of an impressive treasure placed in the grave of a Greek noblewoman around 330 BCE.
