Wrapped Chevron Huggie Earrings from The Met Museum


These chic hoops evoke a rare chevron-shaped earring in The Met collection, which was originally produced on the island of Cyprus in the 6th-5th century B.C. Cyprus served as a way station for ships in the eastern Mediterranean since prehistoric times, which is reflected in the diversity of the island’s jewelry. The Museum’s ancient earring may be an antecedent to the boat-shaped variety that would become popular later on.
