Etruscan Italy Gallery
Earring (tubular type) with ring. Comparativelt thick hoop, hollow, circular in section. Probably not intended for pierced ear: too thick at ends. Near one end is a sphere encircled by a ridge. Behind it are 4 lines of beading across hoop terminating in a group of 3 tiny circles. In the cener of the lines of beading is a small loop thru which is threaded a pendant ring of twisted tiny beading. Intact.
