Description
Perhaps no figure in history radiates a more enduring aura of adventure and romance than Alexander the Great. In his journeys to the far corners of the earth, Alexander sought to emulate the travels of two Gods: the mythic hero Herakles, and the wine deity Dionysus. The spirit of that age is evoked in this magnificent necklace, which bears the image of Herakles on a silver coin minted by Alexander, surrounded by wine-colored amethysts, which in antiquity were associated with Dionysus. Surely Alexander himself, who had a fondness for the rare and the luxurious, would have approved. Adornment for those with a romantic and adventurous spirit of their own. - (FJ.3099)
