These delicated earrings are based on the fired clay Phaistos Disc, now in the museum in Heraklion in Crete. It was found at the Minoan palace at Phaistos and dates to ca 1500BC.
The original is about 15cm in diameter and is covered on both sides with a spiral of stamped symbols. Its purpose and meaning, even its original place of manufacture, remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology.
These earrings are also decorated on both sides, like the original disc.
