Ancient Gems Two-Tone Drop Earrings from The Met Museum


These colorful earrings pay tribute to a rare gold ring in the Greek and Roman Study Collection at The Met. Produced in Cyprus in the 6th century B.C, this precious ring displays impressive aspects of the ancient goldsmith’s art. The ring bears two of its three original insets: a piece of sard (quartz) and a “stone” of glass paste, which would have presented a pleasing color contrast with the third element. Our drop earrings reimagine this ancient adornment with gray aventurine and carnelian stones.
