The jewelry of ancient Greece's relatively brief Hellenistic period (323-146 B.C.) is famous for its intricate detail and superior skill. This period saw great improvements in techniques like filigree, complex hand-braiding, granulation, and stone-setting. Popular themes were the "Hercules knot," rosettes, and animal torcs (a large rigid neck ring).


Greek artisans use prototypes passed down from past generations of gold- and silversmiths to create this sterling silver bracelet inspired by Hellenistic motifs. The caps feature a pair of blue lapis lazuli beads, believed by the ancient Greeks to be sapphire with streaks of gold.


Handcrafted in Greece. Sterling silver with lapis lazuli. Adjustable. 2 3/16"W across the widest point.
