Description

Description

These striking earrings were made from a direct mold taken from an original pair of ancient Roman earrings, date unknown. They represent Nike, the winged goddess of victory. During the austere period of the Roman Republic, jewelry was considered a luxury and a sign of ostentation and was therefore officially discouraged; sumptuary laws limited the amount of gold jewelry that a Roman woman could wear. In the imperial period (after 27 B.C.), however, the wearing of lavish jewelry became acceptable.
