Lombardic disc brooches from modern-day Italy, 7th century. The garnet on the gold brooch (right) is recycled from an earlier piece of jewellery while the other shows an enamelled woman bust (left; the so-called the Castellani Brooch). The depicted female appears to wear a brooch with three drop-shaped pendants. The Castellani Brooch was found in Canosa di Puglia, Bari while the other brooch was found in Ascoli Piceno, Marche.
