Earrings from the Boscoreale TreasureLog in to see prices
These earrings in golden brass were inspired by a bracelet found among a set of jewels in a villa in Boscoreale, a town located at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, not far from Pompeii.
The villa was destroyed in the volcanic eruption of 79 A.D. It was not until 1895 that the treasure was discovered, consisting of 109 pieces of silverware and a few pieces of gold jewellery.
This bracelet, featuring two rows of eleven pairs of hollow hemispheres separated by a torsade, is part of a series of jewellery that was very popular during the 1st century A.D. Indeed, many such examples can be found in the museums of Pompeii and Naples.
Keep the jewellery away from dust and moisture. Avoid contact with perfume, chemicals and cosmetics; avoid getting the jewellery wet.
