Tales From the Knowne World is a site dedicated to the study of jewelry, Ancient Rome, reenactment, history, fashion, historical sex work/sex-workers/courtesans, historical sexuality and erotica, and a touch of random for flavoring. This site may not be suitable for all audiences.
Thank you to everyone who attended Quick, Cheap, & Easy Roman, Part 1: Introduction to Roman Jewelry, and Part 2: Roman Jewelry (Intermediate) at the University of Atlantia on June 12th. Since there was so much crossover, I’ve made one page for all the information for your convenience..
I will be adding to it over the next week or so.

Etruscan Jewelry Set from the early 5th century BCE
“The tomb group represents one of the richest and most impressive sets of Etruscan jewelry ever found. It comprises a splendid gold and glass pendant necklace, a pair of gold and rock-crystal disk earrings, a gold dress fastener (fibula) decorated with a sphinx, a pair of plain gold fibulae, a gold dress pin, and five finger rings. Two of the rings have engraved scarabs that revolve on a swivel bezel; one is decorated with embossed satyr heads, and the other two have decorated gold bezels.”
