Classical Heart Pendant - Museum Shop Collection
5th Century B.C.
From the collection of the Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami
The inspiration for this jewelry dates to 450 B.C., almost the precise year that Greeces greatest architectural achievement, the Parthenon of Athens Acropolis, was begun. Their design is unusual; inlays of stone or glass were not commonly used at this time. The delicate mount features a bezel set, heart shaped garnet. The simplified shape reflects the classical idealism of the Age of Pericles.
