These nicest Roman gold earrings I've seen in ages.

Superb workmanship, especially the extemely fine gold granulation work.

The beautifully formed rosette on the pendant contains a tiny garnet carbochon; rather chipped.

The ancient method of "twist strip" manufacture of the gold wire is clearly evident in the oblique longitudinal creases you can see on the wire.

Intact.
