Temptation Tuesday: Because We're All Fancy Sometimes

This incredible Neoclassical revival necklace is a thing to behold! Inspired by the jewelry of ancient Greeks and Romans, its vivid 18K yellow gold rope chain has four gold amphora shaped dangles and five dangles with graduated garnet cabouchons decorated with applied wire work. Wearing it makes you stand a little taller, like a Greek goddess of yore. The clasp is stamped with the Vatican crown and keys for 18K gold, indicating that this piece was made between 1815-1870.
