Description

Ancient Roman gold earrings with beads. A matching pair, each consisting of an oval hoop set to centre with a glass bead held in place by decorative twisted metal collars, all to an elaborate hook closure, hoop is approximately 2.7cm in length. Tested yellow gold, circa 1st-3rd century AD.

These earrings have been fitted with modern yellow gold shepherd's hook fittings so that they can be worn today without affecting their historical integrity.

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.
