Welcome to Affordable Rare Finds. This Etruscan style brooch is gold toned with some great metal workmanship. It is also a domed style brooch with a couple of layers of that intricate detail and there is a middle border of 12 gold toned pearls. With a rope border, the green jelly belly cabochon on the top is the final detail. On the back side is a standard safety clasp and a swivel pin with a metal backing behind the cabochon. The brooch is an oval style that is 2" long by 1 5/8" wide and 5/8" thick. It weighs 21 grams.
The Etruscan jewelry era spans from 7th Century to 5th Century BC. The Etruscan people actually became a know civilization around 800 BC. The Etruscan had mastered the art of filigree, embossing, and granulation. They also started integrating valuable stones, rubies, sapphire, and emeralds. The Etruscan civilization started to decline due to attacks from other societies and finally collapsed by the rise of Romans in 300BC. The quality of their jewelry declined sharply due to them trying to survive and everything. The Etruscan jewelry is in high demand and so is the revival jewelry. We do have a couple of other items listed.
