Authentic Ancient Roman Grape Earrings - Gold - 2nd. Century A.D.
This is a STUNNING pair of authentic Roman earrings made of gold.
This set has been dated to the 2nd. century A.D. thus making it 1800 years old!
The hoop is made of gold wire, open at the top and each earring carries three massive golden "grapes". The height or each earring is around 19 mm which translates into some 0.8 inch.
The set is in STUNNING, original condition and was unearthed at a dig site in the ancient Roman province of Moesia which roughly corresponds to parts of Serbia and Bulgaria in the Balkan region, Eastern Europe, an area where the Romans often went to war to subdue the East Celts.
Holding this artifact in one's hands, one can almost feel the power, glory and might of the Roman Empire!
Everybody can go to the shopping mall and simply pick a new piece of jewelry out of enormous stocks of freshly made items but how many of you have ever given (or gotten!) a present to a near or dear one with such history embedded into it, such character, the patina of 1800 years battling the elements and so unique that there is truly only ONE of it in the world?
Imagine that 1800 years ago, a Roman citizen had this set commissioned and gave it to his beloved wife...
Wouldn't it be great if some 1800 years later, this process would be repeated?
We qualify this set as original, unrestored in near mint condition and perfectly wearable.
This is NOT a copy of any kind. This is an authentic 1800 year old set!
