9,000 years before the introduction of Christ, mankind made its initial speculative strides towards composed society. The support of these early Neolithic cultivating societies was ‘The Fertile Crescent;’ a name given to a land mass covering a range which extended from the shores of the eastern Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf. The ‘Fruitful Crescent’s’ region incorporates the nations we now call Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Kuwait, Turkey and Iran; Of every one of these nations it was Iran, known as Persia up until 1935, who was to have the biggest effect on world societies spreading over a course of events from 3200 B.C.E. to 1935 C.E. (BC); an aggregate of over 5000 years. 

The Persian Empire achieved its apex with the Achaemenid administration. At its tallness, the Achaemenid administration, enduring from 550 to 330 B.C.E., extended from the Indus Valley in what is presently Pakistan to the banks of the Danube River in Europe.

At the focal point of the Achaemenid administration were the urban communities of Babylon and Susa; the last specified in the Bible’s Book Of Esther as “Sushan.”

Among the world’s most established urban communities, persevering from 5000 B.C.E to 650 C.E., Susa was picked as the capital of the Achaemenid tradition due to its area on the exchange courses from Persia, Mesopotamia and Asia Minor. Under Cyrus The Great, Susa turned into the line’s central treasury; one of the most grounded and wealthiest storage facilities in the known world outperforming even Babylon in its wonderfulness. Susa remained the focal point of the Achaemenid line, working as a vital exchanging city until the third century before Christ, where it tumbled to Alexander the Great and the consequent Parthian and Sassanid Empires. In 638 C.E., the city tumbled to the Islamic triumphs of Persia and its trafficking significance decreased. Susa figured out how to make due as a city until the point that it was at long last devastated by the Turkic Mongols in 1218 C.E.; after which it was relinquished.

Susa, repossessed by the infringing desert lay in ruins, lost for over 600 years. Nonetheless, in 1897 archeological unearthings at Susa were attempted by the French anthropologist Jacques de Morgan. In February 1901, de Morgan revealed what gave off an impression of being a tomb of Achaemenid sovereignty dating from around 350 B.C.E. Truth be told, the regal figure encased in the sarcophagus was that of a young lady; an Achaemenid princess. The body had been lain out and enhanced with a tremendous measure of gold and valuable gemstone adornments and decorations. Among the different gems, one emerged from the rest; A pearl neckband or to be more exact a pearl collier.

The Susa pearl accessory comprises of 3 columns of 72 pearls each. At the point when Jacques de Morgan found the accessory the pearls were in a propelled condition of weakening with a significant number of them separating on contact when they were moved from the tomb. De Morgan trusted that the ‘Canine Collar’ pearl neckband initially comprised of in the vicinity of four and five hundred pearls. In spite of the fact that the pearls had endured, the setting and hanging of the jewelry was generally in place. The total of the surviving 216 pearls were scattered, and combined with gold gemstone encrusted discoveries going about as spacer bars. There were ten gold spacer bars altogether, each of these bars involving three petite plates around five millimeters in distance across. They isolate the pearl collier into nine equidistant divisions; at the limit of each end of the jewelry there is a bigger ten millimeter circle to which every one of the three pearl strands are secured.
