Description
These ancient earrings manage to be both bold and delicate at the same moment. Their generous loops are adorned with radiating studs and a central pendant of granulated balls. The overall effect is of some rare golden flower. We know nothing of the woman who wore these earrings when Rome ruled the world, but we can imagine that she was not unlike the jewels she chose: lovely, elegant, and a little daring. As long as we can touch these golden tokens that she placed in her ears, her beauty will not be forgotten. - (SJ.0220)
