Description

ntroducing our 14k gold Minoan Honey Bee Pendant #1, a faithful reproduction of the original ancient Greek pendant. Discovered in 1930 at Chrysolakkos, Malia, Crete, it dates back to the Middle Bronze Age (1800 – 1600BC). This meticulously crafted piece depicts two bees transporting honey to their honeycomb, showcasing intricate detail and mastery in granulation and filigree techniques. Known as “melissa” in Greek, the honeybee holds cultural significance, symbolizing mutual support and fertility. As the most famous piece of Minoan jewelry, the original pendant is exhibited at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum in Crete. This Minoan Honey Bee Pendant # is the first and smallest size in the collection of five. Please note, that the price excludes the 14k gold chain, allowing you to use your chain. Handcrafted in Athens, our jewelry pieces are inspired by ancient Greek history.
