A versatile piece in the form of the Phaistos Disc, with pendant and brooch fittings to the reverse.
The original fired-clay disc, now in the museum in Heraklion in Crete, was found at the Minoan palace at Phaistos and dates to ca 1500BC. The original is about 15cm in diameter and is covered on both sides with a spiral of stamped symbols. Its purpose and meaning, even its original place of manufacture, remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology.
This jewellery collection comes to us from one of the foremost and well established silver jewellery manufacturers in Greece. We are proud to have been working with them for over a decade.
