Description

Our unique necklace takes its inspiration from a pair of beautiful gold earrings set with a glass seal showing a helmeted head (1st–2nd century A.D.). Now in the collection of the British Museum, these original earrings are from Episkopi on Cyprus's southern coast.

During the austere period of the Roman Republic, jewelry was considered a luxury, and sumptuary laws limited the amount of gold jewelry a Roman woman could wear. In the imperial period (after 27 B.C.), however, the wearing of lavish jewelry became acceptable; Pliny the Elder wrote that Lollia Paulina, wife of the emperor Caligula (ruled A.D. 37–41), frequently wore emeralds and pearl jewelry. To satisfy this new love of adornment, many goldsmiths migrated from jewelry-making cities such as Alexandria and Antioch to work in Rome. These craftsmen combined Etruscan and Hellenistic styles and techniques with new Roman decorative themes.
