Byzantine Circle Drop Earrings from The Met Museum


Our sleek drop earrings with 18K gold-plated openwork circles feature sterling silver ear wires under the gold, making them easy to wear all day. We have adapted the openwork clasp of a beautiful 6th-7th century necklace in The Met collection as a model for this chic pair, which were made in the USA from the finest materials available. Characteristic of early Byzantine jewelry, innovative pierced designs illustrate the subtle elegance achieved by early Byzantine goldsmiths, as exemplified by the original ancient necklace in the Museum.
