A Roman style bracelet of 8mm Amethyst round beads alternating with 7mm gold pearls, hand knotted on beige silk.
This collection has been designed exclusively for the British Museum by Caroline Haelterman from the Real Pearl Company. Extensively researching ancient Roman gemstone jewellery, the range has been inspired by the intricate jewellery discovered by archaeologists. Amethyst gemstones, as featured here, were popular in ancient Roman jewellery; they believed that the gemstone was as an antidote to drunkenness.
The pearls used here are of the freshwater cultured variety. The matching necklace to this bracelet is also available to purchase online.
