Measuring 3 ½” in diameter, this superb matched pair of Precolumbian gold earring bangles (95.332HD) is attributed to the early San Agustin horizon of the El Bolo River area of Colombia and date c.100BC-400AD. Made from hammered 20K sheet gold and repoussee designed with a rayed sun image, the slightly flexible pieces are in excellent condition. These almost certainly were worn by a wealthy cacique and were a symbol of his power and importance. Some scattered patches of mud still cling to the surface of the disks, but they can be easily removed with a soft cloth and some warm water. These would make a great addition to any collection of Precolumbian gold or art. The pair comes with a small display card, a map of Colombia outlining the San Agustin area, and a certificate guaranteeing authenticity.
