Gold lion jewelry has been found in numerous burial site treasures throughout the Greek empire. Similar silver and bronze jewellery from between the 4th and the 2nd century B.C. also have been found, although these are more rarely in preserved condition owing to the faster oxidating properties of these metals.
Using a number of researched ancient Greek and Minoan hand-made processes (unseen by silver and goldsmiths in Western Europe or America), our workshop offers immaculate historical reproduction pieces that are enjoyed by enthusiasts today worldwide.
It renders the attributes of design and decoration of similar gold and silver artifacts from the period mentionned and is 100% hand made from sterling silver with many processes similar to jewelry of its time. This is what makes the design an overall authentic reproduction, completely true to prorotype museum artifacts.
Comments: One of the items our workshop is world renown for. Vivid detail, astonishing quality of manufacture and old-school craftsmanship.
Completely hand made. Spring-hinge mechanism ensures rigidity through long term use and that there is no distorion of the collar's shape over time.
Old-school silver items like these are rarely made in this day and age and where available cost fortunes. So take this oppotunity to obtain such a fine piece of art directly from us, the only source in the world where such quality torcs have been made for the last 75 years!
