The pendants in antiquitywere the most processed jewelry and are generally rare. These objects usually had one or more holes. They were used in everyday life and in funeral rituals. The most common forms are elongated, oval and rectangular. The piercing was usually done in their small side.

The decoration of the pendants is mainly geometrical with many themes that vary, depending on their origin. The depiction of female figures or animals, such as birds, reptiles, fish were very common. The pendants were made of clay, stone, silver and gold probably were sewn on the clothes or hung by the neck as amulets.

Pendants with holes are kept at the Cycladic Art Museum and the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
