Description
Beautifully intricate and delicate, these ancient earrings encompass the wealth and exquisiteness that would once have adorned the ears of an aristocratic woman. Pyramidal in shape, each side of the main part of the earring are decorated with a ‘honeycomb’ of a raised series of circles. Beneath these hang a globulated strand, popular on earrings from this period. The large hoops show that these earrings would have hung low in the ear. - (FJ.0098)
