For as long as people have been discovering ancient artifacts, we've been trying to emulate their styles and techniques. We can especially see this every time discoveries were made of Egyptian antiquities - Napoleon's forays into Egypt and the 1809-1826 publication of Description de l'Égypte launched inspired styles in the early Victorian era, and the 1922 discovery of King Tutankhamun spurred a bout of Egyptomania in the Art Deco period. Similarly, the 1963 release of Cleopatra reignited the public imagination - enter this gorgeous collar necklace.

Napier, an American firm founded in jewelry capital Attleboro, Massachusetts in 1875, began in silverwear before pivoting to jewelry and remains in the field today, with pauses in production only to focus on war medals during both global conflicts. Specialists in costume jewelry with a particular flair for geometric and Egyptian-inspired designs, their peak popularity was in the 1950s and 1960s.

This gorgeous piece was found with a single piece extender attached to the clasp; the extender isn't original to the piece, but can be included for added versatility.
