This bracelet takes you back to the Byzantine Empire, which was from the fourth century AD to approximately the mid 1400s. Typical types of jewelry that were made during the Byzantine time period include necklaces, neck pieces, head pieces along with bracelets, rings, earrings, and other ornamental jewelry.
