The palmette takes its name from the palm leaf. It originates from Ancient Egypt and became a very widespread symbol throughout the whole ancient world. It is often present as an adornment in architecture and on pottery.
The palmette on this piece of jewelry was inspired by the plasterwork in the Glyptotek’s Central Hall.
