Why this is a
Masterpiece

Eleven gold bracelets measuring 7.5cm or so in diameter were found in a wooden coffin in the mound. Five bracelets were on the right arm of the corse and six on the left. One bracelet from the left arm is very ornate whereas the other ten are of the more usual solid ring type made by bending a rod into a circle. The ornate bracelet was made by bending a long wide strip of gold into a circle and rolling the edges over. The outer surface is divided into eight sections decorated with two alternating patterns that include turquoise and gold filigree. The stone setting technique shows the influence of countries west of China. It is designated as Korean Treasure No. 623.

History of the Object
These gold bracelets were excavated from the North Mound of Hwangnamdaechong, a gourd-shaped double mound royal tomb located in Daereungwon Tomb Complex in Hwangnam-dong, Gyeongju.
