Three cloisonné birds' heads with cabochon garnet eyes, arranged in the form of a triskele, radiate from a central garnet ring, which encloses a circular Garnet. Surrounding the ring are two concentric bands of filigree, edged with twisted wire, containing heart-shaped motifs. Decorated with filigree are a seventh-century female fashion, occurring mainly in Kent, England. Remarkably reproduced from the original in the British Museum in London. Size: 1 7/8 inches including Ear-wires.

The Sutton Hoo Triskelion garnet earrings are simply stunning. The gold, garnet, and design are so harmonious together and the work on the earrings is very detailed and precise. They are larger earrings and thus make a statement - be bold and lovely in these beautiful earrings!
I had seen the Sutton Hoo treasures in my explorations of Anglo-saxon history and loved the garnet and gold jewelry. 30 years ago I saw a version of these earrings at the British museum, but couldn't afford them. On my next trip to London, they were gone, and I never found any like them again until searching internet I hit on the Museum of Jewelry. I bought the earrings online with some trepidation, not ever having heard of the store and afraid that I could lose the money, or that they might not arrive or not be very nice. Instead I was really happy to receive them, even before anticipated, and that they were just what i was looking for. Nice warm gold color, and as far as I can see pretty accurate reproduction, deep red cloisonne' (is that what it's called?) and garnet. As soon as we can shed our masks i will wear them all the time.
These are absolutely beautiful. The arrived in a beautiful package and look great on.
