Description

A large and impressive solid gold cuff from the Dian Kingdom circa 2nd century BC.
This striking cuff is crafted from hand hammered high karat gold (20-22k). Though over two thousand years old, the large scale, simple lines and clean design look at home in today’s modern world.
Contemporaneous with the Chinese Warring States Period and early Han Dynasty, the Dian Kingdom, located in present day Yunnan Province, was a major trading hub between China and Southeast Asia. Renowned for their metal working abilities, Dian Culture artifacts display a fascinating combination of Han Chinese, Dong Son, and Scythian influences.
