An Ancient Persian-Achaemenid Empire restrung necklace composed of beautiful glass and hardstone beads in different shades and hues of light blue.
At its peak, the Achaemenid Empire had the most expansive territory in history, on account of which it embraced a fusion of various languages, religions, and cultures. Indeed, the phiale itself was not a Persian invention, but can be traced back to the Bronze Age and even prehistoric Greece.
