Our stylish earrings are derived from a sumptuous sixth-to- seventh-century necklace in The Met collection, part of an impressive silver and gold treasure found in 1902 in northern Cyprus, which was an important trading center in the eastern Mediterranean during the early Byzantine period.

The elegantly simple necklace features alternating luminous white pearls with soft green gems worked from a type of quartz, one of several stones that were called emeralds in Byzantium; the gold clasp features delicate openwork.

Such luxurious jewelry as this original necklace demonstrates the wealth and prosperity that were enjoyed by many during the early Byzantine era. The earrings are enhanced with aquamarine stones.
