Ancient Hellenistic Bronze Ring Carved Lapis Lazuli Depicting Eros 332-58 BCE

Greek jewelry, Etruscan jewelry and other Italian jewelry made in the time between about 850 BC and about 500 BC (called the archaic period, was inspired and greatly influenced by Egyptian and Assyrian examples brought by Phoenician merchants who were crisscrossing the Mediterranean Sea by this time. The techniques remained basically the same as the earlier Egyptian and Assyrian styles though embossed or stamped plates of gold and silver became a predominant basic element. Granulation in gold continued and was developed in Etruria to a remarkable degree of delicate refinement.

In the Classical Greek period, 5th and 4th centuries BC (480 BC – 338 BC), granulation went out of fashion. Enameling was re-introduced and filigree became predominant. Classic Greek jewelry was delicate and very refined.

In the Classical period of ancient Greek jewelry manufacture there was little jewelry actually made in Greece itself but so splendid is its quality and technical prowess that it is considered to be miniature sculpting, and a fine expression of the breadth of the artistic creations of this `Golden Age'. Flowers and tassels were a common motif for gold chain necklaces, and hoop earrings held delicate filigree discs and rosettes. Such pieces are available to the modern day collector.

During the Hellenistic Age (330-27 BC), after the conquests of Alexander the Great, rather opulent gold pieces with precious and semi-precious stones became popular. Greek jewellery design and manufacture was influenced by the "new" of Oriental influences of the conquered lands as well as a revival of interest in Egyptian themes and styles.

Greek jewelry of the Hellenistic Age saw small gold workings fashioned into pendant vases, little delicate winged victories, cupids, and doves becoming common motifs. At the same time, an important innovation into Greek jewelry manufacture was the introduction of quite large colored stones, especially garnets, as a center-piece of designs. This style was copied by the Romans, who greatly increased the variety of stones and began to set them in rows bordered with pearls.
