Roman Fringe Tourmaline Necklace from The Met Museum


Our delicate necklace evokes a stunning piece of Early Imperial Roman jewelry (1st century B.C-1st century A.D.) in The Met collection. During the previous Roman Republic, laws aimed at limiting the ostentatious display of personal wealth meant that Roman women wore few personal embellishments. However, in the Imperial period after 27 B.C, lavish jewelry gained acceptance as exemplified by this elegant gold and beaded necklace.
