The clasp, in the shape of a "laurel leaf", is a perfect illustration of the new definition of styles established by Roman jewellers who sought to break away from the pre-existing Greek models. During the 2nd and 3rd centuries, new symbols, such as the wheel, half-moon, and ivy or laurel leaves, started to appear on pendants, bracelets and necklaces.

The original gold clasp was part of a luxurious set composed of three segments of three rows of fluorite alternating with three rows of pearls.

The combination of precious materials and gems produces a colourful effect to the detriment of the setting itself, which has consequently become particularly discreet.
