Description

Indulge in our 14k gold handmade dangling earrings, a tribute to the ancient Gold Minoan Honey Bee pendant. These earrings are a detailed representation of two bees transporting honey to their hive, echoing the famous Minoan piece discovered in Chrysolakkos, Malia, Crete from the Middle Bronze Age.

The honeybee, known as “melissa” in Greek, holds great significance in Minoan culture. The original pendant, celebrated as a renowned piece of Minoan jewelry, is displayed at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum in Crete. The craftsmanship showcases the artist’s mastery in granulation and filigree techniques, highlighting their intricate skills.

Bees, symbolizing mutual support and fertility, played a vital role in the Minoan, matriarchal civilization, associated with the Great Mother or Mother Goddess and rituals involving honey. Our exquisite 14k gold honeybee earrings are inspired by the second size of the pendant collection but are available in various sizes upon request.

These Gold Minoan Honey Bee Earrings feature a leverback lock, ensuring easy usage. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted in our Athens workshop, drawing inspiration from the rich tapestry of ancient Greek history.
