Description

This artful ring reinterprets a 7th-century Frankish disk brooch with red garnets and blue glass embellishments at The Met. Brooches were central to the evolution of Frankish fashion; between the 300s and 500s, women turned to pairs of small brooches in inventive shapes to fasten the wraps they wore around their tunics. By the 600s, single, large, and elaborately decorated disk brooches became popular functional adornments. The brooch is regarded as the most characteristic element of Frankish dress, and exemplifies the exceptional skill of Frankish metalworkers.
