A Pair of Roman Gold Disc Droplet Earrings Set With Garnet
C. 1st-3rd century AD
A beautiful pair of gold droplet earrings each featuring an oval-shaped disc leading down to a tear shaped droplet, with a fine ropework pattern to edge and set with a garnet and two granules below to finish.
Loops are slightly misshapen otherwise intact and in excellent condition with good detail. Would only be wearable with modern hoops.
Provenance; Ex Suffolk Gentleman Collection, collected in the 1990’s.
Size: 34mm – 35mm length
