Byzantine, Eastern Mediterranean, Gold Earrings, 6th - 7th Century A.D.
Jewelry with these flat backed disk like pellet globules was popular across the Byzantine empire and with the barbarian tribes to the north. Examples have been found from Sicily to Hungary and Northern Bulgaria. Most or all of this jewelry was probably made in the Eastern Mediterranean, possibly in Syria. Examples have been found with coins from Tiberius II (578 - 582) to Heraclius (610- 641).
