A beautiful pair of Byzantine half-moon gold earrings featuring detailed gold, scroll patterning. Three pearl drop pendants hang from the bottom, comprised of two pearls to each drop. These earrings are remniscent of Opus interrasile goldwork, which was a technique favoured from 200s - 600s. Designs were traced onto sheets of gold; the background was punched with holes of various sizes to highlight the pattern; and fine details were then worked on the surface.

c. 6th - 7th century A.D.
