Based on the pearl earrings painted on the amazing 1st century BC to 3rd century AD Fayum mummy portraits, we created these striking double circle earrings made with a 7mm White pearl above a larger 13mm lustrous mother of pearl cabochon, the whole in a gold plated 925 silver twisted rope setting

Roman history brought back to life in all its splendour!
