A pair of hoop earrings based on ancient Persian hoop earrings dated to over 2,000 years ago (200BC-200AD).

To shape this elegantly simple earring, the goldsmith would have rolled a fine leaf of gold on a core made of pitch - a malleable material found in its natural state. This classic technique of the Ancient Orient made it possible to economise on the precious metal.

A single ring from the pair was discovered in Susa, in the archaeological strata dating back to the period of the Parthian Empire (247BC?224AD).

Ideal as a gift, this reproduction jewellery is crafted from sterling silver.
