Ancient Inspirations

ImageAncient Inspirations… So as to rephrase, what makes us love ancient style Jewellery so much?

 

Take a look at this ring. It belongs to the Aigina treasure, the island of the Aegean Sea and it’s dated about 1850-1550 BC. It is probably a piece of Minoan Cretan workmanship.

At SilverTownArt we have the pleasure to work with an amazing artist that produces replicas of ancient Greek jewellery or performances, taken for instance from ancient coins.

Museum pieces! That’s the phrase that best describes the beauty of these designs. Image

What makes us adore this kind of Jewellery is the feeling of another time, where people invented new things, just as effectively as now, or even more, considering their means. How is it that they produced such beautiful things, 4000 years ago and have this kind of aesthetics?

Thanks for reading,

The Team @SilverTownArt
