Gold body chain from the Hoxne Treaure, buried in the 5th century AD. Found at Hoxne, Suffolk, UK in 1992.
The Hoxne (pronounced ‘Hoxon’) hoard is a rich find of treasure from Roman Britain. Alongside approximately 15,000 coins were many other precious objects, buried for safety at a time when Britain was passing out of Roman control. The body-chain is a type of ornament which had a long history and can be seen in representations in both Hellenistic and Roman art but actual examples are extremely rare. The chains passed over the shoulders and under the arms of the wearer, with a decorative focus where they join on the chest and the back. This example is very small and could only have been worn by a slender, perhaps very young, woman. The 2 plaques where the chains join comprise a gold coin of Emperor Gratian (AD 367-383) in a decorative mount, and an oval setting for 9 gems, a central amethyst, 4 garnets, and 4 empty round settings which probably contained pearls, now completely decayed.
