The Ariadne Necklace is an 18k gold vermeil peridot necklace inspired by Minoan mythology. Ariadne’s string is a fine curb chain ushered through the double bail of the geometric pendant. The Minoan princess used this string to guide her beloved through the labyrinthine catacombs below the palace of Knossos. A journey of redemption illuminated by baguette cut peridot, providing a metaphoric light at the end of the tunnel.
The Ariadne Necklace offers hope, guiding us through the fathomless corridors of our inner labyrinth.
Peridot has been used in jewellery by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans who revered this gemstone as a symbol of the Sun. Peridot radiates feelings of inner warmth, wellbeing and positivity.
We use a variety of chains, some more fragile than others. Please take care of your chain by storing separately to avoid tangling and remove your necklace prior to changing clothes as this can cause the links to stretch. Temple of the Sun cannot honour the warranty for chain necklaces that have been damaged due to stretching, incorrect storage, or general wear and tear.
