Cypriot Gold Shield Post Earrings

These stunning earrings are inspired by classical Greek and Roman jewelry, which evolved during the Hellenistic period into more lavish designs. Made of gold finished pewter they are shaped in the form of a shield, adorned with delicate filigree and granulation beads. They have a post back.

Stylish and sophisticated, they are reflective of the exquisite costumes and jewelry seen in the many brilliant productions at the Met.

History

Met Costumes

All costumes and jewelry seen at the Met are unique works of art. The company puts on an average of 25 operas every year, with as many as 200 individual costumes featured in each of them, and works with some of world’s greatest costume designers to create unique pieces for an average of six or seven new productions per season. Everything is handmade in the Met’s own workshops, and many costumes and jewelry items from past productions, all the way back to the 1880s, are preserved in the Met Archives.
