A pair of 24k gold plated hoop earrings inspired by gold penannular armlets, which were on display in the Museum's major exhibition Scythians: warriors of ancient Siberia.

The design on the earrings show monsters with long snouts, rows of teeth, triangular shaped eyes and long tails which interlock at the back of the hoop.

Part of the Oxus Treasure, the original armlets can be associated either with art from the Caucasus or with the Scythian-style art of western Siberia.

The Oxus Treasure is the largest collection of fifth- fourth century BC Achaemenid precious metal objects and was found near the eastern edge of the Persian empire. Several of the gold items are closely related to Scythian gold objects in the Siberian Collection of Peter the Great.

NB:For hygiene reasons, we cannot accept returns of pierced earrings, except in case of fault.
