Golden chains dangle from a bold disk ornamented with a rope pattern. The slightest turn of the head will set them in motion, drawing attention to the charms of the wearer. Such a jewel was surely worn by a woman who was confident of her own beauty. It is easy to imagine her laughter, full of the love of life, echoed by the gentle tingle of her earrings. From this single, lovely clue, we can picture her as if she were an old friend. - (SJ.0394)
