Description This superb tubular bracelet closes with a clasp decorated with granulation--a hallmark of Hunnish craftsmanship--around a central round garnet. The backs of the hemispheres are decorated with a filigree. While Hunnish women also wore jewelry, the large size of this bracelet suggests it would have been worn by a man, high on the arm.
