Byzantine Bead Graduated Earrings from The Met Museum


Our dramatic 18K gold-plated graduated bead drop earrings feature sterling silver ear posts beneath the gold, making them easy to wear all day long. We have adapted the round beaded links of a beautiful 6th-7th century necklace in The Met collection as a model for these chic drop earrings, which were made in the USA from the finest materials available. The subtle elegance achieved by early Byzantine goldsmiths is exemplified by luxurious adornments such as the original ancient necklace, demonstrating the wealth and prosperity enjoyed by many during the early Byzantine era.
