In Southern Europe, during the Bronze Age, it was a tradition for women to braid gold jewelry into their hair. Since then, many of these pieces of jewelery have been found in old graves.

These earrings recreate a motif known from these tombs. Originally, the heart turned "upside down", i.e. with the pointed part at the top. It is uncertain whether the jewelry was intended to represent hearts or whether the resemblance is accidental.

These earrings are copies of a piece of jewelry found in Transylvania in Romania, and the original is on display at the Moesgaard Museum. Archaeologists date the piece to the year 1478 BCE, i.e. 3500 years ago.

The ear studs are 10 x 12 mm and are made of genuine silver.
