Museum of Georgia: Jewellery Collection – tourquoise and pearls

Bet you can’t guess when these beautiful earrings were made …

Earrings from the 2nd-3rd centuries AD: gold, garnet, tourquoise and pearls

Yes, literally centuries ago.  From the second/third centuries in fact. Whilst these relative newcomers in gold, tourquoise and pearls are merely from the third/fourth centuries. Upstarts!

From the 3rd-4th centuries: gold inlaid with tourqoise and pearls.
