An extremely fine pair of Ancient Roman matching earrings, each modelled in high karat gold and featuring a discoid body, leading to a rectangular-shaped attachment. Further embellishments include a granule to the top of the discus, three to the rectangular attachment, and twisted gold wire between the discus and the attachment. Two drop-like pendants, ending in dark garnet round beads, complete these elegant earrings. Fastened hook to the reverse. Disc shaped earrings, presented either in simple or more elaborate forms, as seen here, were a distinctive trait of Ancient Roman goldsmith art. Weight: 3.88 g.
