Granulation

Granulation, Filigree and Repoussé 4th century BC
Reel with representations of Pegasus and Chimaira, probably an ear-stud. Gold with filigree, granulation and stamping decoration, early 4th century BC. Origin is uncertain: the shape refers to Southern Italy whereas the granulation is specific to Etruscan jewellery.
