  • TIMELESS ROMAN GOLD EARRINGS

ROMAN SPHERE EARRINGS

$120.00

This timeless earrings were inspired by a golden pair from ancient Rome, which was made between the first century B.C. and the third century A.D. Roman earrings such as these, with round pendants and convex discs, are well represented in The Met collection.

During the Roman Republic, laws aimed at limiting the ostentatious display of personal wealth meant that Roman women wore very little gold jewellery. In the imperial period after 27 B.C., however, the wearing of lavish jewellery gained acceptance. To satisfy this new Roman market, many goldsmiths migrated from established jewellery-making cities to work in Rome, where they set jewellery styles that were coped throughout the empire.
