Brand new ancient history

Gold jewelry was never finer than in the Hellenistic period. Alexander the Great's conquest of the Persian Empire introduced an abundance of the precious metal to the advanced craftsmanship of the Greeks. The results of that union were stunning, with precious stones of sumptuous color shining brighter than ever when set in glorious gold work. Archaeologists are still uncovering perfectly preserved treasures from the Hellenistic period, pieces unlike anything seen before or since. Until now.

The Stauer Alexandra Collection recalls the finest Hellenistic treasures, with green onyx — one of nature's most verdant gems — set in gleaming, gold-finished settings. Inspired by the technical virtuosos of the Hellenistic era, the craftsmen who created this metalwork knew exactly how to make these onyx gems pop, through the contrast of colors and the crafting of the rope-like patterns inspired by history. It shouldn't be this easy to get ancient treasure delivered to your front door, but it is.
