A matching pair, each formed from a flat section hoop with a fine band of ropework set between plain borders, adorned with a single circular domed plaque with ropework to the edge and a single granule to centre, the hoop punctuated by a series of granulated pyramidal forms, fitted with a secure wire hook and eye closure. Tested yellow gold, circa 2nd century AD.
