Ancient Greek Thracian earrings. A matching pair of gold earrings, each composed of a curved stylised reef knot motif created from a number of fine gold wires with additional granule decoration, fitted to top with a secure shepherd's hook, approximately 2.5cm in length to top of hook. Tested yellow gold, circa 5th-3rd century BC. 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.
