ROMAN FIBULA ON GOLD EARINGS
The Bijarchéo Collection is an exclusive trademark of jewellery from Galerie Golconda. Each unique model is crafted using authentic archaeological pieces. Only the most valuable metals such as gold and silver are used so that each piece can be worked in accordance with the traditional methods and manners of ancient jewellery.
Pair of earrings with two bronze cast fibulae, made in the mold of Roman times, mounted on 22 carat gold. Originally, the fibulae, (from the Latin Fibula meaning fasteners) are the ancestors of our modern day pins. They were used to fix clothes draped on the shoulder or to retain the panels of a cloak, functioning as pins. The fibulae could also play the role of amulets to ward off evil and some were deposited in the sanctuaries as offerings.
