A pair of gold earrings, featuring twin dangling pearls suspended on gold bars.
Earrings of this type were extremely popular with Roman ladies, and numerous examples have been found at Pompeii and Herculaneum.

The originals were made in the first century A.D., during the Early Imperial period of ancient Rome. This type of earring was known as crotalia (from the Greek word for rattle or castanets) because the pearl pendants would produce a jingling noise when worn.
