The LYCIAN necklace transports you to the historical world of Lycia. Crafted with organic ancient beauty and adorned with antique multi-colored carnelian stones, this necklace is a homage to the rich cultural heritage of Lycian architecture and jewelry of the time.

Lycia, a historical region in Anatolia, holds a captivating history that dates back to the 15th and 14th centuries BC. Nestled along the Mediterranean Sea in what is now modern-day Antalya and Muğla provinces in Turkey, Lycia’s allure was known to ancient Egypt and the mighty Hittite Empire during the Late Bronze Age.

Derived from the Ancient Greek name Λυκία or “lukos,” meaning “wolf,” the name Lycia embodies strength and courage, making it a befitting choice to showcase the wearer’s resilience and bravery. It also signifies “from Lycia,” drawing a connection to the ancient Anatolian region in Turkey.

The Lycians first emerge in the epic tale of the “Iliad,” standing alongside the Trojans as formidable allies. Among their notable leaders were Glaucus and Sarpedon, who commanded respect and admiration on the battlefield.

What sets the LYCIAN necklace apart is not just its historical inspiration, but also the meticulous craftsmanship that goes into its creation. Each necklace is entirely hand-sculpted by Rafael Indiana, who meticulously carves every detail from wax. This process ensures that each piece is unique, exuding an authentic ancient beauty that captivates the senses.

The LYCIAN necklace is a testament to the timeless allure of ancient cultures, a tangible connection to a bygone era. It symbolizes the wearer’s strength, courage, and appreciation for the rich tapestry of history.

Every Rafael Indiana product is handcrafted by artisans in Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar, from wax making each piece unique. We believe it gives the product its authentic ancient beauty. Every design comes with a unique story.
