A stud earring with three dangling chains, this Gorgoneion is a classic “crotalia” or castanet-style. The ancient Romans developed this word for the kind of earring that would make a gentle noise as the wearer moved, something that was considered alluring and feminine. The fearsome protective amulet of the Gorgoneion is set above three chains suspending lapis lazuli beads.
