Description

Western Asiatic Achaemenid gold earrings. A matching pair of earrings, each composed of a hoop with wirework collars and suspending a cluster of hollow spheres with granule detailing, approximately 2cm in length (excluding shepherd's hook fitting). Tested yellow gold, approximately 3.6 grams in weight, circa 6th-4th century BC.

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.
