Object Description

Ancient Roman gold earrings. A matching pair, each composed of a finely worked hollow polyhedral bead with clusters of pellets on each flat surface, to a rounded wire hoop with a closed-end spiralled fastening. Tested yellow gold, approximately 2.2 grams in weight, circa 5th century AD.

These earrings have been fitted with modern rose gold shepherds hook fittings so that they can be worn today without affecting their historical integrity.

Complete matching earrings such as these are a rare survival from the ancient world. These earrings are a testament to the high level of skill of the craftsmen of the time and are in fine condition commensurate with their age.
