Description

These earrings take their design from several rare Etruscan treasures in The Met collection, which were originally made in the 5th century B.C. in the region of Italy now known as Tuscany.

These wonderful bronze objects include a group of miniature bronze replicas of armor, such as greaves (shin guards) and shields, said to come from Vulci, an ancient city north of Rome. Similar bronze miniatures are often found in votive contexts and may represent an offering of thanks for a successful return from military duties. Also serving as the inspiration for our jewelry is an elliptical bronze leaf-shaped disc, possibly a waist ornament.

Celebrating the simplicity and textured patinas of these intriguing bronze objects from ancient Italy. Made expressly for The Met by Sibilia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Patina Fan I bought this pair of earrings because I love the genuine brass and patina oxidation, but when I received this pair I instantly loved them even more. They are long enough to look really classy and stand out enough to look elegant. Can wear them anywhere with any outfit or any occasion. I am very happy with my purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Large and long Beautiful earrings, meant for ears of strength. I would not recommend for aging/sagging lobes....just too heavy. Returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Earrings I received these earrings and the necklace that goes with them as a Christmas gift last year. They quickly became some of my very favorites. The earrings are most definitely a statement piece as they are quite large. I don’t find them too heavy, and since I’m tall (5’11”) I don’t find that the length is an issue for me. They are also light for such large earrings! I always get a ton of compliments when I wear them, and they pair well with many colors in my wardrobe. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant earrings These earrings are larger than I had thought, and they are stunning. Their size emphasizes their elegance; the gold and turquoise is a great combo. I've received several compliments on these, and I must say I enjoy wearing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely earings! I love the combination of colors in these earring. I was a little apprehensive about the size and weight, but I am tall and they work very well. They were not overly heavy either. I am very pleased with my purchase.
