About Etruscan Jewellery:

Etruria was an ancient civilisation found in parts of Italy, including Tuscany, Latium and Umbria. It is believed to have started around 900 BC and continued until it was assimilated into the Roman Empire by about the 1st century BC. Etruscan art and jewellery was heavily influenced by ancient Greek culture and design, and was considered a symbol of wealth and prosperity. Jewellery typically consisted of masterfully crafted gold, and often featured concentric patterns, filigree, granulation and glass paste. Large discs were often used as earrings, pendants and brooches.

During the 19th century, many Etruscan tombs were opened, and the jewellery discovered inspired Victorian jewellers to design pieces in what became known as the Etruscan Revival style.

This exquisite piece of history will make a delightful gift.
