An elaborate pair of Ancient Roman earrings modelled from electrum and finely embellished with freshwater pearls and carnelian beads. Each earring features a hook to allow wear, and central arched body, made from fine filigree work, attached to the hoop by a delicate gold chain. Three attachments hang from the central arch, the later ones featuring freshwater pearls and carnelian beads, while the central one features a glass paste bead and a single freshwater pearl. These types of earrings were popular in Roman Egypt.
