A pair of very fine Greek Hellenistic gold earrings in the shape of pseudo-amphorae. Each earring is composed of a hollow triangular body with each side featuring either an oval garnet or carnelian inset. Dangling from the base of the bodies are two pairs of delicate drops, one pair displays a small pearl and gold beads while the other pair has an additional bell pendant to the end. One of the drops has been replaced with a later wire. The top of each earring is composed of an amphora-like feature, with a short neck and a trio of delicate gold handles which connect the suspension loop to the main body. The earrings are attached to a single loop and hook later added in antiquity.
Date: Circa 5th-3rd century BC
