Rodium and Gold plated bangles bracelets are purely decorative types of jewellery used in weddings and parties. Many people can not afford real gold and so many a time they take recourse to gold like costume fashion jewelry. These are made in classic and traditional designs in copper alloys like brass and bronze. These have no intrinsic values and extremely archaic, and elaborate forms have survived and are still made. Bangle bracelets exist in enormous variety all over India. Sometimes, unlike bangles, bracelets have an opening to facilitate putting them on and taking them off. Bangles made of a flat metal can vary in width from narrow to very broad cuff like forms. Other rigid bangles types may be made in two parts hinged together, and employ various kinds of fastenings, such as screws or movable pins.
A Sarmatian Gold Choker with Mythical Beast Inlaid with Turquoise and a Large Amethyst Cabochon
1st century B.C.E./C.E., L. 36.5 cm.
The neck-ornament is composed of three different elements, a complex, rope-like loop-in-loop-chain, its finials in the shape of crouching animals inlaid with turquoise, and a rectangular centerpiece set with a large oval amethyst of exceptional fine color.
The most fascinating part is the crouching animals; rear legs and front legs tugged under, posture. The modeling of the body and the ferocious appearance are that of a lion, but the twisted, curving horn above the head makes it a lion-griffin. The fantastic creatures are generously inlaid with turquoise, set into openings that make the inlays an integral part of the bodies. Haunch, ribs, ears, eyes and cheeks are indicated by drop-shaped inlays varying in size. With their muzzles one lion-griffin holds a square setting also filled with turquoise, set above a hinge, the other hook, also covered with a similar setting, links the chain to the central ornament. The clear, geometric lines of this ornament form a remarkable contrast to the liveliness of the animals. A rectangular gold base supports the slightly raised oval setting holding a domed amethyst surrounded by a ledge.
While the multiple chain and the central setting of this impressive neck ornament fit perfectly into the jewelry of the late Hellenistic and early imperial Roman periods, the crouching animals with turquoise inlays integrated in their bodies suggest a late Sarmatian origin. The Sarmatians, a multi-tribal confederacy of Iranian people akin to the western Scythians, favored a very particular gold work marked by their own colorful interpretation of the famous “Animal Style”. Oval, drop-shaped, circular and even rectangular turquoise was generously used to indicate parts of the bodies of fantastic animals. Splendid examples of Sarmatian work and style have been found in rich burials of these nomads who inhabited the steppes from Afghanistan in the east to the Ukraine in the west.
Late Sarmatian gold work of the 1st century B.C. to 1st century A.D. sometimes shows the influence of goldsmiths of the Classical World; for instance this impressive neck ornament, a Sarmatian interpretation of the Hellenistic animal head necklace. A similar hinged clasp with oval mount on a rectangular base was used for a Hellenistic bracelet now in the Museum of Historical Treasures in Kiev. Together with an armlet decorated in the characteristic Sarmatian “colored animal style” it was found in a rich Sarmatian tomb excavated in Nogichik on the Crimean peninsular, dated to the 1st century B.C. – to the1st century A.D.

The Thetford treasure
4th century AD Thetford, Norfolk
This remarkable hoard of late-Roman gold jewellery and silver tableware was found in 1979. The jewellery is mostly in pristine, unused condition, and shows the late-antique taste for elaboration and bright colour. The stylistic links between the individual items suggest that most were the products of a single workshop, quite possibly in Britain.
This jewellery consists of necklaces and clasps, pendants, bracelets and a gold buckle. One necklace has beads of green glass and emerald, and another, probably incomplete, is a series of interlocking gold beads.
The pendants include an amulet-case of hexagonal section which contained only sulphur. Two pendants are similar Hercules-club shapes, a design often used for earrings, and another two are set with gems, a lion cameo and a chalcedony gemstone engraved with a figure of the goddess Diana.
The bracelets include a matching pair similar to a set of four in the Hoxne hoard. The gold buckle with a figure of a satyr is the most unusual item in the group.
The twenty-two finger-rings in the Thetford treasure form a unique group some of the rings are of familiar late-Roman types, but others are of exceptionally original and flamboyant design. Common features shared by the rings and some of the other pieces of jewellery imply that most, if not all, the gold objects were the products of one workshop.
The rings are set with garnets, emeralds, amethysts, various forms of semi-precious hardstone and glass, many small settings were evidently loose and were not recovered when the hoard was found. The engraved gems are of earlier date than the goldwork, and had been re-mounted from older pieces of jewellery. The most noteworthy rings are those with shoulders in the form of dolphins and birds.
