Object Description

A splendid Roman golden chain necklace with glass beads. The necklace is formed of a beautiful chain of golden links fashioned from openwork gold wiring. Interspersed between the gold links are jade coloured hexagonal glass beads, providing a rich contrast with the metal. A fine golden bossed disc pendant, surrounded by a frame comprising three concentric bands of gold, the middle one beautifully rendered with filigree, completes the necklace, which, in a popular choker style, would have been worn by upper class women of the Roman world. Weight: 11.51 g.
