Description

Discover our exquisite Minoan Honey Bee Pendant #2. Meticulously crafting it in 14k gold to replicate the iconic ancient Greek artifact found at Chrysolakkos, Malia, Crete. Dating back to the Middle Bronze Age (1800 – 1600BC), this pendant showcases the intricate artistry of the Minoan civilization. Admire the delicate detail of two bees carrying honey to their hive, symbolizing fertility and mutual support. In Greek, the honeybee, or “melissa,” holds profound cultural significance, revered as a sacred symbol of the Great Mother in Minoan society.

This pendant considered the most famous piece of Minoan jewelry, mirrors the original artifact exhibited at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum. Each piece demonstrates the artist’s mastery of granulation and filigree techniques, adding to its timeless allure.
