This is evidenced by the exhibition of the Archaeological Museum in Budva, a special section of which is dedicated to the collection of Hellenistic gold jewelry. The most frequent Hellenistic motif is the insertion of semi-precious stone ornaments (amber, granite, glass paste) into the golden thread, thus complementing the jewelry.
