Description

Our modern hoop earrings in 14K gold plate evoke the wing designs found on a 6th-century wall panel from the ancient Near East. Beginning in the 5th century, monograms became popular motifs used in the mold-made stucco wall panels that decorated the palaces and houses of the Sasanian elite, and many had symbolic meanings. The motif on The Met's wall panel very likely had protective significance.

For centuries, global cultures have crafted jewelry with special charms that wearers believe will enhance their personal power.
