Ancient Weave 22k Gold & Emerald Chain

A perfect example of an ancient double loop in loop chain, hand made in 22k gold with 3mm faceted emerald beads. It has a handcrafted Shepherd’s hook clasp, typical of ancient jewelry. The faceted, natural emerald beads are looped between one inch sections. Each tiny ring is hand made into links and fused one at a time. Employing the artistry of ancient goldsmiths, the links are then woven into a chain you may recognize from ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Byzantine jewelry.
